How much does SmartGrass cost?
A professional installation under 100m2 typically costs:
From $70/m2 for direct installation to a prepared base, concrete, patios, decks and balconies.
$120-$200/m2 (similar to the cost of decorative concrete or pavers). This includes the excavation, base construction, supply and installation of artificial grass.
The cost depends on factors such as site access, shape of the area, the existing ground substrate, and the product you choose. Contact us for a ballpark estimate or quote.
How is SmartGrass installed?
After you complete the site scrape, we will box 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, butanol 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.
- Removing leaves and debris regularly with a broom or leaf blower/vac
- Remove the occasional weed that may appear
- Use a moss & sanitiser spray yearly in shaded areas
