What Does Turfgrass Care Cost?

One of the first questions you have when looking for a service is, “What does it cost?” It can be hard to find an accurate price online, and finding estimates such as “starts at $XX.95” feel misleading.

Since turfgrass care is dependent on the size of each lawn, there is not a flat price for every yard; however, We’re here to help you understand what the cost for your turfgrass care would be by communicating the variables that can affect your price.

Size Matters

The biggest factor in the price of turfgrass care is the number of square feet of turf your property has. A large lawn requires a much larger amount of product than a small lawn. Our current pricing starts at $10 per 1,000 square feet. Which means that if you have 6,000 sq.ft., each application would cost $60; 7,500 sq.ft. of turf would cost $75. We always round our prices down to the nearest five dollars so that your price is easy to remember. Therefore, if you have 8,300 square feet, your price would be $80. You can easily find the square footage of your turfgrass through Google Maps with this video. Once you have the square footage, you can insert it into our cost calculator, to get a rough estimate of what you would be paying.

Minimum Pricing

Even though there are many factors involved in turfgrass care pricing, our current minimum price is $35 per application to ensure the sustainability of our company and cover basic costs such as transportation. This practice is standard across the turfgrass care industry.

Sometimes More is Less

Because our pricing structure is based on square footage, we are able to offer a lower rate per 1,000 sq.ft. as your turfgrass area gets larger. This is similar to volume pricing you’re able to get at Costco or other surplus suppliers.

Getting More Value for Your Money

Comparatively, our pricing may be slightly higher than some of the national brands, but we offer significantly more value per application. Most turfgrass care companies apply only one or two products per application, while we intentionally pack as much as we can into each application. We aim to apply a minimum of 3 – 4 different products at once, and some applications have as many as 6 different products applied at once! This efficient use of each application is one of the biggest things that sets us apart from our competitors. We also follow recommended label rates for our products. This practice ensures the effectiveness of the application as well as reduces the risk of herbicide resistance. Application reports from national companies have shown them putting out product at 1/10th of the labeled rate, which is not only ineffective, but also harmful! Such low rates of herbicide act like a vaccine for the weeds, allowing them to develop a resistance to the herbicide, therefore making it harder to eradicate weeds.

Along with proper application rates, we use products that are both sustainable and effective so that your lawn can be beautiful and healthy with minimal impact on the environment. All of our products are bee-safe, and we ask our community to support our pollinators!

With Precision, you receive the expertise and support of a team of professionals. All of our applicators are licensed by the state of South Carolina to safely apply lawn care products, and we attend continuing education classes throughout the year to ensure that we stay on the cutting edge of turfgrass care science. We are confident that you will receive the maximum sustainable benefit to your property through the Precision experience.
