If you are going to prep the site free of debris and include fert/soil conditioner our price would be 25800 for rhizome forming fescue. If the site is already prepared for sod our price would be 15000.

i agree!. I could do just the install for around that price if the lawn is prepped and ready. But for a removal, prep, and install, price would be closer to $25k.

Around here sod costs at least 50 cents a square foot. usually charge 1.25- 1.50 to prep and sod. So....prob $50-$75k, but that would change depending on sod prices, etc. by you.

That is alot of sod to move around. Anytime I get a big job like that, I will always call Western Sod here in Az and have them do it and I mark the price up 15%. Never fails. If anything happens they warranty the sod so I dont have to even show up to the job site. I make 15% and didnt do a thing.

Drive to Hope NJ dude probably about 1 1/2 hours from u. 21 cents a square foot best sod in the world. Liberty, Imperial plenty there. Do a google search.

Wow !!!

Ill have it graded and sodded by a sodding contractor for less than .23 per ft. Add some $$$$ for me and still have it dont for less that $15,000 and i would have NO dirt under my nails and our crews can be on more productive higher profit work
