Artificial turf is a significant investment, but it’s an investment with a quick return. Before you know it, you’ll have plenty of extra cash for the holiday shopping season. Let’s see how the numbers add up.
Suppose the Brady Bunch wanted to install artificial grass in their front yard. Their lawn was looking dull, and some low maintenance greenery would enhance the space. With the high costs of water in Los Angeles County, it’s time they found a way to save some money.
After examining the previous year’s spendings on maintaining their natural lawn, Mike and Carol decided it was too much! Their 1,200 square foot natural lawn initially only cost them $2.50 per square foot, which is a total of $3,000. However, their annual maintenance was $684 for irrigation, an average of $180 for irrigation repairs, $204 for fertilizer and chemicals, and $1,200 for professional mowing and trimming. That’s an annual total of $2,268!
When the cost of maintenance is almost as much as the initial investment cost, it’s time to look at lawn alternatives! Mike and Carol get a quote for $9.00 per square foot for a 1,200 square feet installation, for a total of $10,800. The family is thrilled about their new synthetic lawn and spends every day playing on it. A year after their installation is complete, the family pays to have a professional power brush, which costs only $175. Without having to pay for any other maintenances, the Brady Bunch saves hundreds year after year!
The family saved so much money that they found new ways to spend the extra cash. After Thanksgiving dinner, the family decided to line up at the mall and spend their additional savings on Black Friday! Their Christmas presents have never been better.
These numbers aren’t just hypothetical for the Brady Bunch. It could be the same for you and your family! Get started on your artificial grass installation with a call to OC Turf and Putting Greens at (888) 526-2289.
