Lazy Lawn™ Awesome Artificial Grass

Here's Our Pricing & What Affects It

Artificial Grass Pricing

The pricing of an artificial grass product(not including installation) is driven by two factors:

    • The type of yarn used (not all yarns are the same!) Even for grasses with the same face weight, changing the yarn type can change the price. As an example, the yarn used in the Lazy Lawn Winter Rye Plus is more expensive than the yarn used Lazy Lawn Garden Rye grasses are all basically the same face weight (i.e. the same amount of yarn) the By Winter Rye Plus is more expensive.. This is an important concept to understand so that you can explain to customers that, for example, not all 60 oz. grasses are the same. If a customer asks why competitor A is selling a 80 oz. grass for the same price as our 60 oz. grass, you’ll be able to explain that it is not only the amount of yarn that affects the price, but also the quality (or type) of yarn used.
    • The amount of yarn used – this is relevant when comparing grasses of the same yarn type (or quality.) As an example, even though the both Winter Rye Plus and Premium uses the same type of yarn. The Premium costs more because it has greater face weight than the plus model - 95 to 70oz

Yard Types

Polypropylene is the stiffest yarn fiber and has a 0% absorption rate. The lack of any absorption makes it resistant to climate changes, humidity changes, and most importantly pets and spills. It is often cheaper to produce and has undergone huge advancements in recent years making it the go to fiber over nylon for residential needs. The advantages of polypropylene have also made it the most widely improved upon yarn fiber.

Polypropylene is the go-to fiber for residential needs as it is extremely durable and resistant to the type of use the average home owner will put it through

Polyethylene is the softest fiber and also has a 0% absorption rate. It carries the same absorption advantages as polypropylene but its extra soft characteristics make it less durable than nylon and polypropylene. Polyethylene is not suitable in golfing applications or high traffic application because it wears unevenly on its own. You will most commonly see polyethylene blended with polypropylene to make durable products with a more realistic feel. When blended in products, such as our Winter Rye line, polyethylene creates the feel that home owner’s most desire.

Nylon is the strongest yarn fiber and it comes with the highest color retention of all the synthetic yarns used in turf products. This makes nylon a superior product when it comes to golf turfs because they will be subject to high traffic and high abuse from golf clubs. For this reason highend golf products are often 100% nylon. However, nylon is a fabric and has a 6% absorption rate which can be a concern for certain applications. This absorption can cause problems for pet owners because it will hold both odors and stains from pet urine. Water may also cause problems in a climate subject to freezing and thawing as the turf will contract and expand, thus creating cracking overtime.

Artificial Grass Installation Costs

There are several factors, which can affect the installation costs of your artificial grass project.

  • Excavation and site prep – If you lawn doesn’t naturally drain well it’s likely we’ll need to dig a deeper base, or alter the grade of your site. Both would incur greater labour costs, and the latter a greater dumping fee thus increasing the cost of your project.
  • Access to the area – backyards with limited access pose a greater challenge as wheelbarrows are used thus increasing the labour component of the project. Front lawns are typically less expensive because unloading and grading aggregate bases becomes that much easier in a wide-open front lawn.
  • In our Gold Installation method of installation, we dig 1-2”, and we’ll add a rubber base system for ultimate softness. This method is fast to complete than Silver, but the costs of the rubber base system make its more expensive as a whole.
  • Our Silver method requires approximate 3” of digging and disposal of grass, weed and dirt. Then we add 3” of our compacted and porous aggregate base using HBP – or high performance bedding. Many competitors use limestone screening as a base, it’s less expensive that HBP, but over time it turns into concrete and doesn’t drain.
  • Our Bronze installation method uses your existing topsoil as the base, so it’s less expensive than our Silver Installation method.
