I was just curious what you guys charge to REMOVE sod?

I know the usual to install sod is about $1-2 a sq ft

also, how do you guys charge about laying topsoil, is that included in the price of the sod installation?

Estimated time X rate + Sod cutter rental + Disposal = Sod removal price before adding the 10% SNAFU charge.

For $1-$2 sqft it had better include everything associated with a normal sod install.... and then some.

i charge $.65 a square foot. most people on here will say that is it alot but i tell the customer it will be X amount for sod removal and dump and i will only charge you X amount for the sod and topsoil, which ends up being not much more. this method works for me alomost everytime. I charge $1.00 for sod installation which is good money around me. I charge $65 a yard of topsoil installed which costs me about $15. thats just how I do it. LawnInOrder

We charge on average $0.45 per square foot. Per square foot price decreases as the amount of grass removal increases.
