Factors that affect artificial grass cost & prices in Brisbane

Square Meters

The main factor that contributes to the grass turf cost when it comes to your artificial lawn will be the area that requires coverage. These costs will differ depending on whether there are any oddly shaped areas or if your garden has round or curved borders. The larger or more intricate the area is, the more material you will need.

Installation/Labour Costs

All of our installations include labour costs, so there are no hidden nasties when you receive your quote. We can provide turf for you to do a DIY installation, but it is worth keeping in mind that without the special equipment and experience of a professional you might run into some troubles. If a DIY installation isn’t done properly, your turf could deteriorate without the proper underlay, or bunch up, turning it into a hazard. If you’re trying to keep your costs down, leaving the installation to the professionals will inevitably save you money in the long term.


What kind of surface are you starting with where you want to lay your artificial turf? If it’s an area with natural turf already on it, you’ll have to factor in the cost of getting it removed and disposed of. If you’re laying straight on to concrete, you won’t have to worry about these costs, but there are still some processes involved to prepare the surfaces. Having the right surface properly groomed before laying artificial grass will significantly increase the lifetime of the product.

Which Variety of Turf You Choose

We have an extensive range of artificial grass for all applications from residential to playgrounds, as well as top quality putting green turf and field turf. Many of our products are made right here in Queensland, and we also have some that are manufactured overseas. The prices of these vary per square meter, which gives you a lot of choice to find the right turf for you in your price range. As with any product, as the price increases so does the quality and durability of the turf. See our types of grass page for more information on the types of turf we have available.

Cost Savings Over Time

Another important factor when thinking about the cost of your new artificial lawn, or field turf cost is that you’re never going to have to mow it ever again or worry about watering, droughts or allergies! The costs of these in time, money and worry really add up over the years, so when you decide to go with artificial, remember to knock those costs off your budget!
