    Cost of turfing lawn


    The side of my rear garden had a membrane and small stones. The membrane had worn down and weeds took over. Both have been removed ( albeit some small stones in soil) . The ground has been tilled and most weeds removed.
    Still needs to be made level. .

    I am trying to work out costs for a turfing option vs seeding.
    I would like quotes to include a breakdown of cost of turf and labour.
    The size of the area is approx 100m2.

    Lawn can be delivered easily to the front. There is side access to the rear garden . There is ample parking with no restrictions.

    "Decent turf is £4 a metre roll up. I tend to level the area with some fresh and decent topsoil that's been screened. Two days, for two people if including extra topsoil.
    Or two people for one day if they are just laying the turf"

    "Good morning,

    For an accurate quote I would have to see the job in hand.
    I would be happy to view it then get back to you with a quote.
    Generally speaking grass seed would probably be cheaper than turfing taking into account that seeding takes time where turf instant garden.
    Plus you need to take in to conciliation what quality turf you want want all depends on the pricing
