Can artificial grass 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.
Who will install the grass for me?
Our local SmartGrass franchisee will usually be the one to install your lawn. They are professional turf installers (it’s all they do).
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.
How long does artificial grass last?
SmartGrass has a 10 year warranty, however in many applications it will last 15-20 years with regular maintenance. This is the same as our high performance sports turfs, which have up to 40 hours of use a week for 15 years.
Can I put furniture, trampolines or pools on artificial grass?
Yes! As long as there are no sharp or high pressure points, heavy objects can be used on artificial grass.
Is artificial grass flammable?
SmartGrass is constructed using fire retardant materials. It is code compliant and has a fire rating certificate, meaning it can be used indoors. Fire is highly unlikely in the event a cigarette butt lands on the grass, however we recommend to keep any flames away from artificial grass.
How do you clean artificial grass?
- A leaf blower/vac is ideal for removing debris from your lawn
- Dog poo and other foreign objects should be removed manually, then sprayed with a suitable lawn sanitiser spray
- You can hose down your lawn with water if needed
- You can learn more about maintenance, sanitiser spray, and book a professional maintenance service here.
Does artificial grass stain?
SmartGrass won’t stain or discolour if red wine is spilt, or if a dog pees on it. We advise against using any chemicals on or around it that contain bleach.
