Try Odum or AAA; my last quote Floratam; $125 per pallet installed.

My sod guy lays delivers and installs floritam for .$37 per sqft and tear out and installs for $.55 per sqft. Any job over 1500 sqft. Thats the going rate in my area of Florida. You have to remember a company that buys a lot of grass can get it pretty cheap.

About right for my area as well, and the sad fact is that was the going rate in the late 80's in Sarasota. Of course overhead and fuel especially is so much less now

The price is not out of line on a 10 pallet plus installation, it doesn't include prep so it's a throw and go.

Odums is a big company They don't f around with the contracters too much. AAA is smaller but he's a honorable guy.

Next time you get a big sod job, check out one of the majors and you may be suprised. It beats putting that much down yourself.
