Why do turf prices per square metre vary?

A turf market is a strange place. There are more types and grades of turf than you can shake a stick at. Lots of suppliers too. And turf prices per square metre don’t seem to make much sense. In this blog, we’ll try to explain why turf prices vary and how to get the best value for money for your particular project.

Turf types and prices

There are a lot of different types of turf. At Turfonline we keep things simple by offering 4 types of lawn turf and five types of wildflower turf. We’ll look at wildflower turf in a separate blog.

The four types of turf all come with the same level of service and are delivered in the same way. The difference lies in the way they are grown.

Royal Greens Turf: From £4.66 per square metre

Royal Greens Turf has the highest price per square metre of all the turf types available from Turfonline. That’s because it has received the highest amount of TLC to get it ready for sale.

Shadesman Turf: From £4.66 per square metre

Shadesman is a relative newcomer to the turf market. It’s grown from a grass species called Supranova poa supine.  Supranova poa supine has been bred from a wild alpine grass which is adapted to living underneath thick snow for much of the year. So it’s happy in sun, shade, frost and heat.


Garden Lawn Turf: From £3.11 per square metre

Our least expensive turf is good value for money. Garden Lawn turf makes a durable lawn and is ideal for a garden for children and/or pets.

Reducing turf prices per square metre

When you start digging deep on the Turfonline website, you’ll see that all of the prices advertised are prefixed by the word “from”. That’s because we can make your turf cheaper if you are able to order larger quantities.

Turf haulage is costed by the pallet. It doesn’t matter how much turf is on the pallet, the price is the same. So it costs the same to deliver 15 square metres as it does to deliver 55 square metres. Naturally, that means that the turf prices per square metre for 55 square metres are considerably less than for 15 square metres.

Your turf prices per square metre are affected by order size as well as turf type.

All prices are correct at the time of writing and may be subject to change.

How do I know what my turf will cost?

The simplest way to find out what your turf delivery will cost is to use our online turf calculator.  Fill in your lawn’s measurements and select a shape.
