How Much Does Artificial Grass Cost?

artificial turf cost

Are you curious about the cost of artificial grass? It’s a common question for anyone considering synthetic turf. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer.

On average, a full turn-key installation can range from $8 to $15 per square foot. However, this price can vary depending on factors like your market, project size, accessibility, and product choice. To get an accurate estimate, we recommend reaching out to an installer for a complimentary consultation.

Typically, the cost of artificial grass is calculated on a per-square-foot basis. First, you’ll need to determine the size of the area where you want to install it. Then, decide if you want a professional installation or if you prefer doing it yourself. The DIY route will save you around 50% of the total square-foot price for labor.

If your project is smaller (400 square feet or less), DIY installation may be more cost-effective. By doing it yourself, you can avoid minimum prices and save on labor costs. You’ll only need to budget for materials and equipment, as well as the time it will take to complete the project. If you do decide to choose the DIY route, we have resources available to help guide you through the process.


Don’t be discouraged by the overall cost of installation. Remember that artificial turf is an investment that will increase your home’s value and pay for itself over time. Yes, the upfront cost may be higher than natural grass, but the savings come in the form of reduced maintenance expenses.

Switching to artificial grass may seem pricey initially, but when you consider the costs of maintaining a natural lawn, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It’s a one-time investment that pays for itself in three to five years. So, when planning your budget, take into account the long-term savings you’ll enjoy compared to the initial cost.
