Installation Cost

Is artificial grass cheaper than paving?

I have a small yard that I am planning to make some renovation, and working on a budget. Any suggestions?

The cost of artificial grass and paver projects are very similar even though the materials cost can vary. The way of artificial grass being installed is very similar with that of pavers: excavation of soil ground, preparation of drainage base and compacted smooth surface, such installations require some hard labor along with bulk materials such as drain rocks and decomposed granites. Given such installation similarities, the cost of installing artificial grass and pavers can be compatible: Even though paver installations can take relatively longer as you need to lay them down piece by piece, but pavers won’t need other accessories such as seaming tape, glues, installation nails and infills which are needed for artificial grass installation.

I think installing artificial grass is better since it doesn't grow tall, so no need to cut it regularly.

I'd choose the artificial grass since it's durable

I would prefer the artificial grass than pavers since I have kids who loves to run. The risk of getting wounds when stumbled are less with artificial grass.
