Let’s review how the synthetic grass is made
One of the main factors is how the synthetic turf is made and what type of material has been used to make artificial grass. All our synthetic turf made from first-class pe (Polyethylene) material and pp (polypropylene) Each yarn have its own characteristics. Polyethylene has become the most commonly used for its greatest versatility and excellent balance between durability, aesthetics, and softness. Polypropylene yarn is typically used for sand-filled putting greens and as a thatch layer on landscape grasses. Nylon is also used as a thatch layer as well as nylon putting green turf. We use triple layer baking system 2, layers of pp and German latex and polyurethane where required mostly on football fields.

Lets Review Disadvantages.Does artificial grass gets hot in Perth?
This is the question we get time after time so here are some facts.
Artificial grass can get hotter than real grass on a hot sunny day, however, there are ways to overcome this to make your synthetic turf (Artificial lawn) comfortable to play on or just chilling out any day of the year.
While this is true that the synthetic grass can get warmer than the real grass it helpful to put few things in perspective. Let’s say although the surface of artificial lawns and the air directly above them may get hotter than conventional lawns, this is not like the amount of heat absorbed and radiated by some landscaping surface, such as a paved driveway or a brick walkway, or concrete and decking.
Most of us know not to walk on hot sand concrete or without shoes and we are usual to think about the potential heat of pavement before we take our dogs for the walk. We have grown up to learn these places can be really hot on hot 37 degree days by the same token we grew up thinking of natural grass is a cooler surface that we can probably comfortable to walk on barefoot even thaw on a hot summer day.
Since synthetic grass falls in the middle and does not get hot some of the surfaces written above it also may not be as cool as natural grass on a very hot sunny day. while most of us did not grow up with artificial lawn and are just becoming more familiar with them, it is understandable some of us like grass with a cooler surface and expects all grass to have the characteristic.
In saying that artificial grass and neutral grass are two different options for your landscape with grass. While they offering similar looks and appeal and function. There are some factors in which they differ. For example, natural grass needs mowing, watering which starting to become very expensive in Perth WA, weeding, aerating, weeding also it gets muddy cannot be enjoyed after a good rain. Artificial grass does not have the problem as the natural grass are responsible for a significant portion of residential water usage and are not drought friendly. Manufactured grass requires very little water and is a very drought-friendly option.
How to keep Synthetic turf cooler on hot days in Perth
In general spiking most people with artificial lawn do not report an increasing temperature that keeps them from enjoying their lawn however if your synthetic grass gets too hot for you to enjoying if you are considering that this may be issue for your pets or children, there are range of steps you can take to ensure artificial grass does not get too hot and can be used comfortably all year around.
If you haven’t installed the artificial grass as yet you can help avoid hot synthetic grass with your choice of inclusion of subsurface cooling system. For example, you can choose lighter colors and use infill that tends to absorb moisture to prevent heating up on a hot day. you can also avoid rubber infill that tends to absorb and transfer heat.
This is an area where natural grass generally does not grow well, for example south facing backyards, under the large trees, also shaded by nearby buildings, but you can enjoy a lush lawn under your shade trees if you option for fake grass. As an added benefit, the shade from the trees will help keep your synthetic lawn cooler and will provide a shaded area for your children to play or dogs to use as restroom if other areas of your lawn are a bit too warm.
Here are few more ways you can keep your artificial grass cooler
1, Rinse your synthetic lawn with a garden hose to quickly reduce the surface temperature. With our landscape artificial grass installation we use 10 mm minimum of white wash sand on the top of our installation to retain water in sand most of the whole day to keep the temperature down .also we use blue metal dust and road base on sub-base of the grass which has high property’s to retain water for long period of time without making muddy patches .
2, If you have a sprinkler system, you can run the system for a few minutes to cool off your artificial lawn quickly.
3, A retractable awning can be installed so can be open on very hot days to provide shade to your lawn.Shade sails can be installed to block the direct sunlight to reduce the direct sunlight and provide shade aria to play.
4, Additionally, Synthetic turf tends to cool off quickly, so even if it warms up on a very hot day, you will notice the surface temperature immediately begin to drop as soon as the shade is introduced from clouds, the sun going down or setting up a canopy.
Artificial turf price per square meters in Perth reviews
Typically, the medium to high-grade artificial grass cost in Perth run anywhere from $24 to 30$ plus GST, all depending on which manufacturer and style you choose. Keep in mind that you will have to account for waste when ordering the material.
Let’s assume we select one of the most popular turfs, which happens to be a mid-high-grade turf. It is not the cheapest, however, it is definitely not the most expensive by far. We are going to use this one in this example due to its popularity. This particular turf is $26 sm plus GST. For the sake of this exercise let’s also assume there is going to be 15% waste.
The waste factor will vary depending on the shape of your project. On average, there is usually 10-20% waste on turf projects. For instance, if you have an “oval shape” yard, you will be looking at a lot more waste than a rectangular yard. The turf is rolled out like carpet and typically comes in 4 meters widths and 20 meters long, so if you can try to imagine the grass being rolled out in your head, you can visualize how much waste there is going to be with an oval shape (or any irregular shaped yard) vs a simple rectangle.
Now, if we add 15% to 55 m2, we get 62 m2. Let’s multiply 63 m2 by our turf cost of /26$ m2 and then by GST to account for Australian GST tax). We get $1638 and add on 10 %GST = $1800) .
To figure out the price/m2 we would divide 1800$ by 62 m2 and we come up with $29, which takes into account the 15% waste and 10% GST sales taxes.
Let’s take a look at the next material, that being the blue metal dust (cracker dust)road base which will vary depending on your specific location. For this example, we will go the least expensive route. Using a 55m2, we would be looking at roughly $8/(including GST), which would be around $440.
Looking for the weed killer, if you are using a high-quality concentrate, typically 4 litters of about $50(including tax).
Up next is the garden edging. Coat of supply and install is around 24$+gst, in this case, we will use 10 linear meters only on one side cost will be around 262$
Next up is the seaming tape, glue and nails. This is also going to vary on each project depending on the number of seams, as well as the length of the perimeter. For this example, we can lay the turf 2 different ways where one installation will have 2 seams and the other will have 1, so I think we will all agree that the 1 seam route is the way to go. Ordering the minimum quantity(you will have extras) of each item we will need, we would be looking at about $205 for the seaming tape 50 m, glue(1,20 letter), nails(1box), stakes(1 box) and Staples(1 box).
The last item is infill and there are many different types to choose from. Your options are basically rubber, flex sand, silica sand. The costs can vary drastically for the infill. mostly in garden white wash kiln, dry sand is used in Perth.
Now, let’s pay attention to the Operational Costs
These include dump fees(dirt, grass, concrete, etc.), fueling costs, and delivery fees.
For a 55m2 lawn, we would have roughly 1 trips to the dump(1 truckloads of grass and dirt). At approximately $450 for each load, we would have a total of $200 in dump fees or tip fees.(Wangarra 6065)
Fuelling and labour costs are a little too difficult as it all depends on the proximity to the dump and the exact materials that we are hauling away. Let’s just pick a safe number for this example and say it costs $650 in machine & fueling fees throughout the course of the project. This shouldn’t be that far off, if at all.
The last item is the cost of delivery which will range from $150 per trip, all depending on the manufacturer and distance to the project. For this example, we will use $150, so it will cost us $150 to deliver 80 m2 of synthetic grass.
Coming up Labor Cost In Perth
You absolutely 100% get what you pay for in the labour department in terms of the long term durability/integrity of your project.
There are installers who have been installing artificial grass for 6-12 months and there are installers who been installing turf for over 15+ years. You might guess that the team with over 15+ years under their belt might cost a little more and you are absolutely right!
For a solid crew, who has the experience that you should want for your installation, you would be looking at $10 Per square meters for the labour. At 55 m2, that would be $550 to 650$ in labour.
You can always go cheap here, however, the last thing you want is to be regretting that decision later down the road when your project is falling apart and the company is out of business or day labourers are nowhere to be found.
If you are looking to get your installation done right the first time and never have to think about it again, then you will want to pay the extra money to get a Solid Installation Crew to install your project. This is definitely not an area to shave off a few dollars.
let’s add all up what we have so far:
Material for 62 ms Artificial Lawn 1800$ (rough estimates)
Blue metal,road base = $440
weed killer = $50
Garden edging = $262 (If required)
seaming tape, glue, staples, stakes, and nails = $205
infill = $120
Dump Fees = $650 (If required)
Delivery Fee = $150
Fueling Fees = $150
(Assuming Outstanding Crew) = $550
GRAND TOTAL = $4370
Keep in mind that this figure of $4377, is the cost BEFORE the Turf Company has paid for any of their overhead costs ( “costs of doing business” and more importantly the costs to remain in business as a legal entirely).
AND this is also the cost BEFORE the Artificial Grass Company has made a penny in profit.
After all, making a profit is probably one of the main driving factors to being in business unless the intent is to become a nonprofit. We are not aware of any nonprofit turf companies out there. If you know of any, please let us know.
