Price the service according to how many yards or cubic meters of compost or compost blend you will need to top dress the lawn.
Follow our easy recommendations above to determine the necessary cubic yards or meters based on the lawn’s surface area.
Example: a 10,000 sq. ft. lawn (or 930 sq. meter lawn) will need 5 cu. yrds (or 3.75 cu. meters) to topdress that size lawn. To renovate that same area will require twice the material.
Next, multiply the cost of the compost or compost blend by 4 or by 5, depending on the total square footage of the area to determine the final price:
- For areas over 10,000 sq. ft. or 930 sq. meters, cost x 4
- For areas less than 10,000 sq. ft. or 930 sq. meters, cost x 5
Exercise common sense in order to determine what your market can bear.
