Common Builder Questions

Is artificial grass popular?

Artificial grass has become the biggest trend in landscaping over the past decade. The main reason is because the grass has come a long way from how it used to look and feel.

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 I install artificial grass myself (DIY)?

It is possible to install artificial grass yourself, however having artificial turf professionally installed may save you money in the long run. Builders will often prepare the base, and get the turf professionally installed.

You can learn exactly how to DIY install your artificial grass here.

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 $35-65/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):

  • $100-140/m2 for direct installation to a prepared base, concrete, patios, decks and balconies.
  • $140-$230/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. $180-$350/m2

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.

The above figures are ballparks only, there are many factors that can determine the cost of your installation. These are things like the product you choose, your location, shape of the area, technicality of the install, access to site and the base preparation requirements.

Can dogs poo / pee on artificial grass?

Yes! SmartGrass Earth Series has a special drainage system which allows the dog pee to disappear quickly, so it is pet friendly.

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.
