    What is the usual cost for a gardener to re-turf a lawn?


    What is the usual cost for a gardener to re-turf a lawn?
    I am considering getting my lawns re-turfed soon;
    Front - 3m x 3.5m
    Back - 3.7m x 5.5m
    Would anyone be able to give an estimate for these lawns to be re-turfed of these sizes?
    Or an approximate guide to estimate the costs involved?

    Looks like you will need about 30 square meters of turf for your lawns, based on your measures above.
    3m x 3.5m = 10.5m squared
    3.7m x 5.5m = 20.35m squared
    (So just above 30 metres squared in total)
    The area would need to be dug up and re-leveled before adding the new turf.
    Below are some approximations of the costs:
    £300 – for good quality turf
    £350 – 400 – for labour (it is likely about 2 days work)
    £100 – clearing any waste properly
    These numbers could vary depending on your area, so I would advise getting some quotes from gardeners local to you and decide based on those quotes.
    Best of luck with the re-turfing!"

    "Ok so going off those measurements you would be looking at around £750 & that's for materials and labour"

    "Assuming the ground is level and soil ready to lay turf it should only take a day to do for two people maximum. Turf varies from between £4 and £8 per metre square.
    If they have to take upold turf and level... thats where the higher costs will come in, including waste."

    "Labour day rate and cost of materials

    No more than £150 for the day"

    "In the past I have charged £350 for a 2 man team for the labour, clearing old turf, levelling off a 4 metre x 3 metre area and then re-turfing.
    I let them know how much turf they needed and they ordered it."
