Well down here in the South, we usually charge $350 to $400 per pallet of grass. That including taking up the old grass, tilling the ground and installing new grass. Perhap, a layer of topsoil would mean more money. Like a month ago, i install 3 pallets of grass and 3 cubic yards of topsoil for $1250.
