How Much Artificial Grass is Purchased

Saving on your artificial grass purchase can be easy, thanks to bulk prices! Buying more saves you money on a larger scale. You’ll often get better rates and discounts by buying in high volumes – usually around 1,000 sq ft or more. So not only will you save, but you’ll also make use of your order for multiple DIY turf projects!

Weight & Density

Artificial grass comes in a range of weights, which affect its price. In general, the heavier weight artificial grass is, the more material it will require for production. Heavyweight and plush artificial grass are usually the most popular choice because they provide a cushioned surface. However, lighter-weight turf may be preferable in pet turf or areas where or frequent cleaning is maintenance is necessary requiring advanced drainage.

Pile Height

Pile height is an important factor to consider when choosing artificial turf. A taller fake grass will feel more luxurious, but it may also be more expensive due to higher manufacturing costs and less durable compared to shorter blades of grass. For high-traffic areas, a shorter and strong blade is likely to last longer than a tall blade with frequent foot traffic on the same path. While often you'll find tall grass to be more expensive, this is not always the case - durable and long lasting short turf, such as pet turf, can also be a higher cost because it offers a longer lifespan. 

Intended Use

The cost of artificial grass installation can differ based on the planned usage. For example, a more durable and 100% permeable turf may be necessary for pets, in order to facilitate drainage. In addition, the turf should ideally be manufactured with antimicrobial technologies to help prevent bacteria growth. All of these factors will raise the price. For the best results, pet turf systems may also require additional turf accessories such as drainage layers and antibacterial sand infill.

On the other end, if you need to buy artificial grass for temporary use, there are many options that are much cheaper. Similar to a carpet ground cover, fake grass for events can start at as little as $0.95/sq. ft. 

Durability

Artificial grass is available in a variety of types, each designed for different purposes. The type of synthetic turf you select will impact both the cost and the performance. For example, turf made for high-traffic areas will be more expensive than turf which is more pliable and bends easily. Synthetic turf with a structured or ribbed blade will be more wear-and-tear resistant and have a quicker recovery rate as compared to grass with flat blades.
