How Much Does It Cost To Install Turf on a Rooftop, Balcony, or Patio?

Artificial grass has become more and more common on balconies and rooftops among clients. Considering transforming your dull space into a cozy bare-foot friendly area? Unsure of the cost for this type of installation? We break down the few things that can affect the price. Check it out below! 

The price for synthetic turf installation on top of a hard surface varies greatly. It can range from about $6 to $15 per sq. ft. The prices include the grass cost and also labor costs. 

It really depends on the following two factors:

Type of system

This includes frames, the drain layer you choose, and the type of attachment (glue or staples). Some projects require more framing than others. Typically, a frame is installed on balconies that need the surface raised to level the grass with the door. Some projects also require more glue than others. We will assess this onsite if you schedule an appointment!

In many cases, installers have to cut the turf in pieces and then seam it back together due to restricted access. This usually happens if we need to carry the turf through an apartment, home, or business to get to the area where we’re installing the turf. Sometimes there isn’t enough street parking for our team either, which creates more problems.
