What’s In A Yard: By The Numbers

Upfront Costs Are Scary

One of the most unappealing aspects to a turf lawn is the cost.  Upfront figures reside in the thousands, no small cost for the average hard working American.

But what does natural grass cost you in the long run?

Below is a rough cost breakdown of an average lawn per month.  We’ve included a modest irrigation, infill, and maintenance fee for synthetic turf as well.  


Synthetic Turf Natural Grass
Irrigation $10 $60
Fertilizer $20
Infill (Seed) $10 $15
Mowing/Maint. $10 $150
Monthly Total $30 $245

*average costs will vary

Over an entire year, this cost comes to $360 for synthetic, primarily irrigation costs.  Natural grass at these rates amounts to $2,940.  We offer a 16-year lifespan warranty on our turf installs, so what does natural grass lawn amount to over that time?

Grass Over 16 Years: $47,040
