Sod removal help
First off, great site! Wish I would have found this years ago. I've searched some of the older posts but can't seem to get a clear answer. I've been mowing for years but this is my first request for sod removal and I really don't know what to charge. 2 small areas need to be removed (18x5 and 18x12) for a total of 306 sqf and then they want it tilled so they can start a garden. My costs involved would be tiller and cutter rental (about 180 full day for both), and dumping the old sod. Since I really don't know how long it will take I'd rather charge by sqf as I've read in other posts. .50 per foot too much? So my figures put me at 180 plus 30 to dump, plus 153 or so to remove the sod. What should I charge to till? I don't want to rip them off but I don't want to rip myself off as well. I'm located outside of Columbus, Oh and not sure where to dump either. Any help is greatly appreciated.
