Turf, it's worth the investment
Updated: 5 days ago
The upfront cost for turf is an investment, there is no doubt about that. But many people wonder if the investment in turf really pays for itself over time. We are here to tell you that yes, turf is worth the investment.
No Maintenance Fees
Think of all that money spent on mowers, mower repairs, sprinkler repairs, lawn aeration, fertilizer, weed killer, water, etc. when you have a lawn. Synthetic Grass Warehouse estimates that a homeowner spends approximately $2000/year on their lawn. That doesn't even include the price of installation which can run you anywhere from $1-2/sq ft. If you have a 700 sq/ft yard that would add on an installation fee of over $1000.
Quickly pays for itself
Alternatively, if you have a 700 sq/ft yard and you decide to go with turf instead of sod it would pay for itself in a matter of 3-4 years. The typical price of turf around the nation is $7-14 a square foot. One of the best things about turf is that once it's paid for there are no maintenance costs associated. With only the installation fee needed, there are really $0 in maintenance fees. Plus, it can last for up to 25+ years and still look as great as it did on install day with the least amount fo effort. You sure can't say that about sod!
Enhances curb appeal
With turf, your yard will always look in perfect condition. If life gets busy and you no longer have the extra time to care for your yard, that's okay! It will look perfect regardless of the effort you put into it. Your beautiful yard will be even more appealing to prospective buyers. According to the Economic Benefits of Landscape by the Landscape Contractors of America, "landscaping can add 14% to the resale value of a home and sell it 6 weeks faster". Who doesn't want to add value to their property and also increase the time it takes to sell?
The decision to install turf can be a big one for many people. Know that it will quickly pay for itself, there are no maintenance fees associated, and it enhances curb appeal.
