Hey guys, I'm putting together an estimate and I am little bit confused about what I should charge. The area that will be sodded is 4200 sqft. I can get sod delivered for 0.17 cents/sqft or 85.56 per pallet. Now, how much do I charge for prep? I will have to spray all of the existing weeds and add 3 in. of topsoil and I will rototill it in with the old soil. After that add starter fert and then lay sod. I have to have 39 cubic yards of topsoil and get it for $25/yrd which equals 1043.25 after tax. It will probably take me 45-50 hrs with a Dingo to complete the job. Any advice would be much apprciated.
