There can be a considerable difference in price between types of artificial grass. Not all artificial grass is equal, and it can be tricky to compare the quality of artificial grass between suppliers. Our Tauro Turf landscape range of artificial grass costs between $20-$25/sqm for supply only. We also sell artificial grass matting for $15-$17/sqm.

What other products do I need to purchase to install artificial grass?tauroturf2019-05-13T05:47:47+08:00
Cracker dust, also known as crusher dust or blue metal dust, is available from select landscape yards around Perth. You will need to add a layer of compacted cracker dust as a substrate when installing artificial grass over sand. This stops movement underneath the artificial grass which would otherwise cause bumps. The cracker dust also provides a firm base to hold in your turf pegs.
U-shape turf pegs are hammered in around the perimeter of the artificial grass. This stops the edges of the grass from being scuffed up or tripped over. They can also be placed along joins and randomly through the middle of your artificial grass.
Self-adhesive joining tape is used to join two pieces of artificial grass. The rolls of grass are available in fixed width sizes. Therefore it is sometimes necessary to join two or more pieces together to fit your area. The tape is 150mm wide and is used along the length of any joining pieces of artificial grass.
Artificial grass infill sand
Infill sand (kiln-dried silica) is installed on top of your artificial grass once installed. The infill sand helps your artificial grass blades to stay standing upright. It also covers the backing of the grass, protecting it from the sun. As well as protecting the backing, it also keeps the artificial grass cooler in summer and weighs down the grass. Bags of infill sand are 25kg.
Some projects require garden edging or borders to be put into place before artificial grass can be installed. Consider your area and what is in place to contain the cracker dust.
How much does it cost to have my artificial grass installed?tauroturf2020-04-30T04:08:21+08:00
Every installation is different. Therefore, it is impossible to give a price without a site inspection. As a very rough guide, full supply and installation might cost between $60-$80 per square metre. Smaller jobs may cost more than this per square metre.
Installation might include machine or manual excavation. Access to the area and quantity to be removed will need to be considered. For installation of your artificial grass over sand, you will need a cracker dust substrate. The Cracker dust is screeded or contoured to your area and compacted with a plate compactor. Finally, along with the artificial grass, you may need turf pegs, joining tape and artificial grass infill sand (kiln-dried silica).
You may also need to consider the installation of garden edging and borders if there are none already in place around your area.
