Is Artificial Grass Cheaper Than Real Grass?

Post date: June 8, 2023

When people are considering installing a synthetic lawn in Derbyshire, a question we sometimes get asked is whether artificial grass is actually cheaper than real grass. It’s a very good question, as the economics of installing an artificial lawn are important. The answer is very simple: Yes, artificial grass is cheaper than actual grass, but there is logic and a time factor involved in this bold statement.

Artificial grass requires an outlay at the time of installation which could work out as being more expensive than the installation of natural turf. This depends in part on factors such as the size of the area you wish to cover and the type of artificial grass you choose to lay. However, over time (2 – 3 years) the cost will have evened out to the point where the artificial grass is more cost effective.

Types of artificial grass available

Here at Artificial Grass Derbyshire we supply different ranges of synthetic turf, including Birch (a 38mm pile height which is extremely durable due to dense thatch), Lifestyle (a 35mm high-quality grass which is springy and soft, with a thick, dense, dark brown thatch for a realistic look), Spruce (four different shades of green and a luscious look) and Willow (a 45mm pile height multi-tone grass with a thick realistic thatch). We even supply artificial grass designed for golf and putting greens!

Other main benefits of artificial grass

There are two other massive benefits to installing artificial grass, too.

Maintenance: The maintenance involved in owning an artificial lawn is less time consuming than a real lawn. You won’t need to be out there mowing it regularly, and so you will save on time and manpower.  Artificial grass can be refreshed and made neat and tidy with a basic brush or a go-over.

Condition: Artificial grass is UV stabilised, which means that it does not ‘dry out’ in the summer and therefore will always look fresh and crisp. Real grass fails in certain weather conditions (particularly during the winter), but this failure is not there with artificial grass. It look good throughout the year.

These images were kindly supplied by a customer of ours who we supplied with 100 sqm of Prestige 37mm artificial grass. The majority of our projects are fully installed by Artificial Grass Derbyshire but in this case the customer was very confident in their own abilities and have indeed laid a very lovely new artificial lawn.

These guys have done a fantastic job of our artificial lawn. We did consider doing it ourselves as it’s a small area but so glad we went with them. They were very reasonably priced and the finish is to the highest of standards. They even looked at the overall finish of the garden project and put more of the gravel core down to higher the lawn so the overall finished effect is perfect. Not even worth attempting the job ourselves.We went with the willow lawn and it’s very soft and natural looking. Would highly recommend the business and lawn.

Paul Emery - artificial willow lawn looks brilliant. Fitting of lawn was professional and meticulous. Delivery was received at the time advised and fitting completed within time advised. Maintenance advice for the lawn from Chris was most helpful. A positive experience from initial quote to the end result of a perfect looking lawn. Would definitely use Artificial Grass Derbyshire again.
