Water Tool

Use our handy tool tool to estimate the cost of watering your lawn

How much does it cost to water my lawn?

The grass in your lawn is a plant, just like those in your pots, borders and hanging baskets, and it needs a good supply of water to keep it healthy. In the UK, we are typically ‘blessed’ with a fairly rainy climate, though, recent hotter and dryer spells have left our gardens in need of more frequent watering. During dry periods, the UK Lawn Care Association recommends watering your lawn to saturation level (approx 25mm or 1″ of water), once a week. 

You may be concerned that watering your lawn is costly, however, in our experience many households are often surprised with how little it can cost them on their water meters. We have developed the watering tool calculator below to give you an indication of how much watering your lawn is likely to cost you. 


Please do not water your lawn in the event of a hosepipe ban. 

The watering tool gives an estimated cost based on water supply meter tariffs only (not including sewage / any other fees).
