What's the going rate for tilling and replacing a pallet of sod (450 sq.ft.).

What I quoted: Tilling, raking, topsoil, leveling and re-sodding equals $505.50. This includes me and one helper.

Thanks,

Well, what do you pay per pallet, how much topsoil is needed (450 sq ft isn't much of an area).

If all I have to do is till, level, and lay, I'd be around $350-400. I pay $80 per pallet.

A 450 sq. ft. here in the Orlando area is about $100.00 plus $10.00 pallet deposit.

Around here it's about .75 per square foot.2 guys can do this job in 2 hours easy.60 an hour across 4 man hours is 240 pluss 50 for the yard of compost thats a 100% mark up brings you to 290 plus sod.At .75 these guys will cut out the old sod and through the new sod.This would'nt include the compost but if your tilling your not sod cutting nor taking all that crap with you.

Does this price include you and a helper?

Don't need a helper on this small of a job.

CK,
Thanks for the input. We got the job and completed it for $505.50. However, it took more like 5 hours because we tilled, bagged (trash), raked, level w/topsoil and laid the sod. My helper and I are both in excellent shape and worked steady taking a water break every 15 minutes on the hour. It was close to 100 degrees yesterday. Anyhow, I cut a nice profit and the job was beautiful.
