The Cost of Turf Compared To Other Groundcovers

The cost of turf per square metre

The median cost of turf per square metre is $28.48, which is approximately a quarter of the cost of the next cheapest alternative, concrete. This table shows the median costs per square metre of various groundcovers, such as turf, concrete, pavers and planting, which makes it very clear what great value turf is. The fact that a newly turfed lawn invariably increases your property’s visual appeal and value makes it an obvious choice for landscapers and homeowners alike.
