Common questions

How is SmartGrass different to other turf?

SmartGrass Earth Series is 100% recyclable, and three times more durable. This means it lasts longer than any competitors’ products and carries a 10 year warranty.

SmartGrass has a range of turf that has been developed for high end residential homes instead of preschools. This is designed to look more like real grass.

SmartGrass Earth Series drains 5 times faster than other latex backed turf, which is essential in poor draining areas, and when dogs pee on it.

Can sports turf be laid indoors?

Yes! Artificial grass is just like carpet, and can be laid indoors.  Most of our products have a D or E class fire rating, meaning that they can usually be used indoors.

How much does SmartGrass cost?

Contact us for a ballpark estimate over the phone or a measure & quote at home.

Artificial grass itself is priced per square metre (typically between $45-80/m2 +gst depending on the type), however the cost of the installation depends on a few factors.

A professional installation that is 30-100m2 in size typically costs (for the supply and installation of the grass):

  • $120-180/m2 for direct installation to a prepared base, concrete, patios, decks and balconies.
  • $180-$280/m2 for converting an existing lawn (i.e. the full excavation, base construction, supply and installation of artificial grass).

Small areas (under 30m2) tend to cost approx. $300-$450/m2. Areas over 100m2 will benefit from scale of economies.

For comparison, SmartGrass does cost significantly more than a real lawn up front, but saves you thousands in maintenance costs long term. Per square metre, fully installed, SmartGrass is a similar cost to paving /outdoor tiles. SmartGrass is about half the cost of Kwila decking. A lot of the investment is associated with removing the exisiting lawn and then preparing a base for the SmartGrass – this ensures your lawn will properly drain and still look perfect for years to come.

The above figures are ballparks only. When we visit you we will assess your requirements and provide you a bespoke proposal which includes pricing for your custom solution. There are 23 factors that we consider to determine the cost of your installation which include things like the product you choose, your location, shape of the area, technicality of the install, access to site and the base preparation requirements.

How is SmartGrass installed?

After a site scrape or excavation is completed, we will install timber boxing around the area and base up with AP20 & crusher dust. The grass comes in rolls (like carpet) and is then installed on the base. It can also be laid onto concrete, decks, butynol and many other surfaces.

How is artificial grass fastened / held down?

SmartGrass is either glued around the perimeter to concrete, or nailed to a timber boxing. When laid on an AP20 / crusher-dust base, 130mm turf pins will secure the turf to the base. Sand infill is usually spread on top of the turf at 12kg/m2 which helps weigh it down.

What maintenance is required on artificial grass?

There are a few things you need to do to maintain your artificial lawn, depending on what you use your lawn for.

They are:

  1. Removing leaves and debris regularly with a broom or leaf blower/vac
  2. Remove the occasional weed that may appear
  3. Use a moss & sanitiser spray yearly in shaded areas
  4. You can learn more about maintenance and book a professional maintenance service here.
