Cost of Artificial Grass

Artificial Grass Cost

You're most likely here because you are tired of spending money and countless hours on your sod lawn and it still looks brown and patchy! If you live in a dry, low-water area like Southern California, and you're tired of the maintenance, then artificial grass is a viable alternative.

It's Turfin Time!

1. You're tired of watering, weeding, fertilizing, mowing and edging real grass.
2. You care about the environment and your family's safety and don't want to use chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
3. You want to cut back significantly on water usage.
4. You're ready to get rid of that air polluting lawn mower.

Return on Investment: How much does artificial grass cost?

Elite's cost ranges from $6.59 to $10.00 per square foot for excavation, turf with installation. And that doesn't even factor in our Sales & Promotions! In comparison, the national cost of artificial grass ranges from $6 to $20 per square foot, installed, or $13/sf. Once it's installed, there are no costs for the next 8 to 25 years.

Most installation companies carry 1 brand of turf, we carry more than 10, giving you the most options around. Our manufacturer warranties range from 15 years to lifetime, contain zero lead or other heavy metals, and boast excellent drainage.

Below we crunch some numbers on a 600 square foot lawn at a rate of $8/sf. In this example, let it be noted that the return on investment happens in 3 years! After that, it's pure savings, and in 10 years, you would save over $10,000!
