That said, you need to be aware of the upfront cost of this investment. This post will explore all things artificial grass prices in Perth. You will be able to tell if you are getting the best price, and more than anything else, value for your money.
A Look at the Current Market
The synthetic grass industry in Perth has grown quite tremendously over the last few years. Today, there is quite a large number of players in the market, both individuals and companies offering artificial grass sale and installation services.
Pricing differs among these companies, and it is only expected that you would be tempted to go for the cheapest prices. Do yourself a favor and don’t-at least not until you understand what affects synthetic turf pricing, and the other factors to consider when choosing a supply and installation company.
Factors Affecting Synthetic Grass Pricing
There are three primary factors that influence artificial turf prices as follows
- Product offering
- Installation service provided
- Business overhead/ running cost
Let’s now delve into a more detailed look at each of these factors, and how they affect the price of synthetic grass
Like any other product, there are high quality and low quality synthetic grasses in the market. The difference is in the quality of the materials used in making the turf. In most cases, lower-quality turf is also made with less material, that is, the turf generally has a lower pile height and density and not enough backing.
The country of origin also greatly influences the product quality, and by extension, the price of the turf. From China to all across Europe, and of course, right here at home in Australia, there is no shortage of artificial turf manufacturers all across the world.
Australian-made artificial grass stands out for its high quality. This includes not just the turf itself, but also the thatch and backing. Australian manufacturers invest heavily into ensuring that their products are built for the local climate, and that they are safe and long-lasting. It’s no surprise then that Australian-made artificial grass costs a little more than imports from overseas. The disparity in price averages at around $10-20 per square metre of turf. For the peace of mind of knowing you are getting the very best, and that the product comes with a warranty backed by an Australia-based manufacturer, the difference in price never seems like much.
Whether local-made or imported, it is the responsibility of every artificial grass company to ensure they only partner with manufacturers and suppliers with the highest-quality products. This is a responsibility we take seriously at Perth Artificial Grass. We have strict quality criteria and thoroughly vet the manufacturers and supplier we collaborate with to ensure you get the very best that there is in the market.
There is a right way to do artificial grass installations and that is precisely how we do it at Perth Artificial Grass. Professional installers will not cut any corners for any reason -not to cut down material costs, and certainly not to get the installation done within a shorter time.
You can trust us to get the job done right. Here is a guide providing an in-depth look into how to lay artificial turf-the right way. From the initial contact, throughout the installation process and even after with after sale service, we strive to deliver the best quality of service. At Perth Artificial Grass we guarantee that your synthetic turf installation will be looking its best, with no bumps and no lumps.
As with any other service, you get exactly what you pay for. Unlicensed and inexperienced installers may offer you an attractively low price, but chances are that you will not be too impressed with the results. Your lawn may end up not looking as great. You may also find yourself dealing with weed control and drainage issues.
Skilled and experienced installers bring unmatched workmanship to every installation, big or small. You can enjoy some peace of mind knowing that, for the price you are paying, you are getting the best installation service that there is. It’s also a bonus to work with a team that offers great customer support, even after the actual installation is completed.
There are many upsides to engaging a big name for your artificial grass supply and installation needs. However, from the pricing standpoint, bigger may not always be better. A big company will also have a bigger budget for their overheads, right from expensive shop fronts to advertising. These are costs that they will transfer to the customer in order to also ensure that they realize a profit margin.
You also don’t want to go the other direction and choose a company that seems to have no overheads as they are operating from the back of a ute. Such companies vanish almost as quickly as they pop-up, and when they do, you will not have no standing when you need them to fulfil their warranty responsibilities.
What you want to do is to find a reputable business that has been around a while. The better if you can find a lean company that fits this profile, as you will not be burdened by the heavy overhead costs. You get a good price, and the assurance of a warranty backed by a solid business that you can be sure will be around when you need it.
Choosing your Supplier and Installer
As you are looking for a company to supply and install your artificial grass lawn, the best thing you can do is to avoid making the decision based on just the price. By all means, do some comparison shopping, all the while focusing on whether the price is commensurate with the value of the product and service offering.
At the end of the day, you want high-quality synthetic turf, installed according to the highest standards. You will rest assured of a lawn that looks great in the present, and which will last for a long time. That is value for your money, both in the short and long-term.
