Well on the soil, I can't tell you how many bags you would need since I buy it in bulk, which would probably be easier for you instead of bags. I would use use about 2-3 yards of soil. Pricing, I charge $1.35 per sq.ft. So that comes out to about $1620. That's here in my area though. Yours might be different. This is just a ball park. Hope this helps.

When I said bulk, I meant buy the truck load, not bags (loose top soil). The $1.35 per sq.ft is just the labor to install. Thats not including the sod. Obviously it would be more if it was. That price includes, all ground preparation and laying down the sod.

$1.35 per sq. ft. is amazing. Around here you're lucky if you can get $.45 a sq. ft sod and installation.
