For the majority, people who have got or are considering artificial grass want it down to the low maintenance, whether it’s time, cost or both. Whilst the cost of artificial grass is undoubtedly more than your current lawn or turf, it is more about the cost of maintenance in the long run. Whilst cost can play a big part as to whether you purchase artificial grass or not, GrassWarehouse have a wide range of cheap artificial grass so you won’t have to compromise.
Of course, the size of your garden is very important when considering artificial grass. It is without saying that the bigger your garden, the bigger the upfront purchase cost (and potentially installation if you are hiring a professional to do it). However, this will also depend on the pile height you want and the level of quality, albeit it, Grass Warehouse offers great quality artificial grass at a variety of prices to suit each person’s needs.
As already mentioned, the initial cost is far greater if you want artificial grass. However, Grass Warehouse should be able to help you out with finding a cheaper and affordable lawn but at a fraction of the cost. From a starting price of GBP8.75 per metre square, those of you who have a small budget will still be able to have artificial grass (depending on the size of your garden of course!)
What you get for your Money with Real Turf
A real lawn will give you a natural soft underfoot so it is comfy to walk on. In addition, real grass also helps to purify the air and cool down your garden which is a great selling factor, especially for south facing gardens. However, it has its drawback in the long run. You will need to cut it regularly; it will need to be frequently watered and regular maintenance. This includes de-weeding, even more so in the summer months. In the winter months, gardens are often neglected as it is colder and gets darker earlier so it can be a task to get your garden ready in the spring, ready for the summer months.
What you get for your Money with Artificial Grass
Whilst underlay is purchased separately, it is a one-off cost, just like the nails, glue and joining tape. Little to no maintenance is required once it is installed which means that your garden will look beautiful all year round. Whilst a more premium and expensive artificial grass might not necessarily save money in the long run, in terms of time, you won’t have to spend a lot of time tending to your lawn and instead, you can relax in your garden and utilise your time more wisely. However, remember that you will still have upfront costs for a real lawn as you will need to at least purchase a lawn mower, grass seed and weedkiller which will all add up over the years.
