Enter the area, price per square meter, and cost factor into the calculator to determine the cost of grass; this calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Grass Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cost of grass.

Cost = (A * P * C) / 100


  • Cost is the total cost of grass
  • A is the area of the grass in square meters
  • P is the price of grass per square meter
  • C is the cost factor (percentage) for additional services or materials

To calculate the cost of grass, multiply the area of the grass by the price per square meter, then multiply the result by the cost factor. Divide the final result by 100 to convert it to the desired currency or unit.

What is a Grass Cost?

A Grass Cost refers to the expenses associated with maintaining a lawn or a grassy area. This can include the initial cost of purchasing and installing the grass, whether it’s natural grass or artificial turf. It also includes ongoing maintenance costs such as watering, mowing, fertilizing, and repairing or replacing damaged areas. For natural grass, there may be additional costs for pest control and disease treatment. For artificial grass, there may be costs for cleaning and sanitizing. The total grass cost can vary widely depending on the size of the area, the type of grass, the local climate, and the level of care and maintenance required.

How to Calculate Grass Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Grass Cost:

  1. First, determine the area of the grass (in square feet).
  2. Next, determine the cost of grass seed per square foot ($).
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = Grass Cost = Area of Grass * Cost of Grass Seed per Square Foot.
  4. Finally, calculate the Grass Cost.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Area of grass (in square feet) = 500

Cost of grass seed per square foot ($) = 0.25
