Weighing the Cost of an Artificial Lawn in Chicago

Some believe that installing an artificial lawn is costly, and it definitely can seem that way, but we’re here to walk you through the logic. Don’t let the upfront costs of artificial grass scare you. It’s an investment; think long term! When you add up your recurring costs of sod, re-sodding, seeding, watering, fertilizing, lawn service or mowing yourself, trimming, etc., we can assure you that within a 3-5 year span, the total will be similar, if not more, than the cost of installing a high quality artificial lawn from GroTurf. Moral of the story? Something might cost a lot of money, but that does not make it expensive. Remember, cost is not the same as value.

One of the greatest benefits of our high quality artificial grass is the return on investment you see after 3-5 years. Think about it: you could be almost done spending time and money on your lawn for many years to come. GroTurf’s product can last 15-20 years in our Chicago climate. That’s a lot of years with a maintenance-free and cost-free lawn! The only tool you will need is a plastic rake or a leaf blower to clear the debris and leaves when they pile up. A simple rinse with the hose once or twice a week cleans the turf in those dry Chicago summer months. There are many great organic cleaners available should you ever feel like you need to freshen it more than just a rinse with the hose.

As with any product, you get what you pay for. We now see rolls of artificial grass at all the big box stores, and many see that price and compare it with the cost of our artificial grass, thus making our product seem very expensive. It’s important to keep in mind that you are NOT comparing apples to apples in this instance. That option is not the solution to your problem. The turf that you are seeing there is a very low quality, unrealistic, foreign product that will fade in the sun and most definitely will not drain properly. That price also doesn’t include the cost of installation, stone, and sand also needed to properly and professionally complete the project. Essentially, the price tag that you see on “artificial grass” at the big box stores or even online is extremely misleading, so beware. If you’re intending on making this investment, be sure to spend your money wisely so you don’t have to spend more in the future! GroTurf’s product and installation team will protect your investment.
