How much will my new lawn cost?

Date: 24-11-2021

It's good to know the rough costs of a lawn when starting a lawn sowing project. This blog will spell out how much a lawn will cost you taking into account a few different lawn types and a lawn size of 100sqm lawn.

While your lawn might be smaller or larger it's a good way to get a general idea of cost and sizing. Multiply or divide the amount to take into account the lawn size at your place!

While all our lawn seeds have high germination rates and are high quality, there are differences between the blends that we give the following Quality Rating:
