Natural vs Artificial Grass Garden

How Much Can You Save with Artificial Grass?

How much can you save by choosing a lawn with artificial grass? When deciding between fake grass and natural turf, it’s important to consider the long-term costs. A once-off installation of synthetic grass will get you monthly savings with a single purchase, while real grass requires multiple costs to maintain every month.

The cost of installing artificial grass varies depending on the size of your garden and the type of artificial grass that you choose. However, one thing for certain is that artificial grass is most definitely less expensive in the long run compared to natural grass, no matter what the cost of your installation is. Not only will it save you money, but it’ll also save you precious resources like time and water too.

With extreme drought crisis becoming common in a growing number of regions across South Africa, the implications are quite significant. For an average lawn of 50m2, this equates to 1,250 litres of water, every week! The cost of this each year certainly makes a difference to your water bill, and not to mention the environmental implications too. Water conservation is very important if we want water for our future generations. Every drop counts, and if we all do our part, little things will add up to big things.

Let’s take a look at the average cost of artificial grass vs natural grass*.

*These calculations are based on if you maintain your natural lawn in tip-top condition throughout the year, without any drought/water restrictions or tariff increases & penalties.

What Does this Mean for Me?

As you can see in the table above, the initial costs of installing artificial grass are likely to be recaptured in maintenance savings within 2 years. Thereafter, you will save all the on-going costs such as labour, watering, fertilising, and cutting, that real grass continues to have.

Premium Range Easigrass         R530 a sqm incl. Vat        Once Off

Standard Range Easigrass         R444 a sqm incl. Vat        Once Off

Natural grass                              R538 a sqm incl. Vat        Every 2 Years

Considering that Easigrass comes with an eight-year warranty, you can rest assured that it will still look beautiful and pristine even after you’ve recouped the cost of installation. Does your natural lawn come with a warranty?

Maintaining Artificial Grass

Keeping real grass in tip-top condition requires constant maintenance with weeding, mowing and fertilising. With artificial grass, maintenance is a piece of cake. A simple, quick and easy maintenance protocol of brushing once a month, along with an annual Easi-maintenance & Care package, will ensure your artificial lawn is as lush and perfect as the day it was installed.

Best Investment Ever

It’s clear to see that artificial grass is a smart return on investment and an excellent investment in your property, whilst also saving hours of precious time. Now that’s winning!

An Easigrass lawn can also be used 365 days of the year with no more muddy paws or feet in your home. It also gives you added peace of mind knowing there are no more outsiders working in your garden and home on a weekly basis. Easigrass ensures your home is a lockup and go solution.
