How Much Does Artificial Turf Cost When Compared To Real Grass?

That's a great question to ask and the cost between the two can really vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and also the particular synthetic turf product you choose.  There are many different variations of artificial turf and it comes with different backing materials, different thicknesses, and even different textures.

A typical installation of artificial grass might be 3-5 times the cost as a traditional lawn using sod or seed but the extra cost is often mitigated by the fact that you don't need to install expensive irrigation systems, you won't ever need to mow the lawn or trim the edges, and it's going to always be a vibrant lush green color without any expensive fertilizers or feeding programs.

When you factor in all these benefits the average synthetic turf lawn can pay for itself in as little as 3 to 5 years with the money you'll be saving on maintenance and care.  Think about all of that extra storage you'll have not having to store a lawn mower, a trimmer, and other lawn equipment anymore!

Synthetic Turf For Day Care Centers & Playgrounds

Artificial turf or grass is a very popular upgrade for homeowners looking to add a safer, low maintenance base to their child's outdoor playground.  With a variety of different backing and thicknesses available artificial turf creates a great surface to play on.  It's equally popular as an upgrade for outdoor play areas at children daycare facilities or even schools as it requires almost zero maintenance and creates an extremely safe place for kids to enjoy themselves on.

Artificial Turf For Putting Greens

Are you an avid golfer looking to improve your putting game?  Would you like to have a putting green in your backyard so you can practice more often?  Maybe you'd like to offer your guests some entertainment at your next BBQ or get-together?  Putting greens made with artificial turf are very popular because they don't need to be mowed or cared for by a specialized grounds keeper.

They can be constructed in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit any backyard space.   We can build your putting green with more than one hole so you can have the ability to practice on your new putting green from many different angles.

They did an amazing job with redoing our Patio with pavers. George was also able to give us ideas and feedback which was very helpful. We love our outdoor space that they built and would hire them again.

Jorge is exceptional to work with! He is professional, responds quickly and mocks up what his team will do so there are never any surprises. He put up a retaining on all sides of our yard, regraded our yard, added pavers with rocks, created a beautiful space with rocks for our trampoline and did all of our landscaping. He can truly do it all! Highly recommend him and his team!

Contempo Stone Design did an amazing job with my outdoor patio. From start to finish very responsive and addressed all questions about the project. Very punctual and professional. Jorge and his team are extremely creative and worked diligently to ensure that the design incorporated all of the elements that we described in the build.

Office Manager August 14, 2023

If you are looking to design & build an outdoor entertainment area at your home, Contempo Stone Design should be at the top of your list to contact. Owner Jorge Aguirre was a superb person to work with. His design creativity, his experience, integrity and work ethic were unbelievable, from start to finish. He and his talented crew were prompt & on time every day, and before leaving the project, tidied up the site. After completing the project, he was true to his word: “You’ll hardly know we had been working there, except for your beautiful patio”. Our project included 2 connected patios at different levels, with a seating wall and custom steps. George’s creativity in designing a subtle lighting package to illuminate the space at night, we’re the finishing touch to the space. Needless to say, we are ecstatic about our new outdoor space and know that it exists because of George/Jorge and the crew at Contempo Stone Design. It is an investment in our new home that we will enjoy for a long time in the future. I can’t say enough about Contempo Stone Design for their abilities to give us what we dreamed of. George listened to our vision, and then delivered the project on time, on budget and exceeded our expectations. Contact us for pictures or further details
