    Depends on the condition of the site to be turfed and what prep work is required.
    Price the turf and any other materials/equipment needed,then add your labour.
    The last two turfing jobs I have done have worked out at £10.50m2
  • This is the only picture I have of the site [IMG][/IMG]

    So far turf is £152 : Materials £120

    Not too sure how to price the labour though.

      From the picture I would be more inclined to weed and feed the lawn and seed the bare patches.

      Or get at turf cutter for the front and back gardens and price for a skip.
      You'll need a rotavator as well.

      A day's work for two people.

      How long do you think the prep will take? Any waste rocks and rubble etc to take away?
      Don't go cheap you will hate yourself afterwords !!

    why is it being re-turfed?

    why are there some patches, whilst rest is growing?

    Looks perfectly recoverable with basic treatments to me, for a fraction of the re-turfing cost.

    • PRO
      I never even looked at the pictures!! It wants a few good cuts and then see what nature does before going further
    • I think some of the patches are due to a family dog. 

      What treatments would help, please?

    mow it, gradually reducing cut height to required level.

    feed it with a late spring granular fertiliser, give it a good aeration.

    The depending on whats a priority, repair the patches with some raking and seed, or spray a weed control.

    Leave for a could of months with regular mowing, then re-assess.
