Charge to lay sod?

Hey guys, I'm trying to figure out what the reason price to lay sod. I'm open to hear some opinion. The project needs sod lay, about 1300 square ft. I'm getting two pallet which cover 1170 square ft to start with, each pallet is $150. So both for 240 then laber,supply, etc. i'm thinking about $30. Total 600. Anybody agree or disagree?, again, i'm open to hear anything. Thanks

Over here in Indy--we aim for 5.50 per sq yard installed but if it's an easy lay with not to much cutting you can get by on 5.00 to 5.25 per sq. yard. This covers routine finish grading, dekivery, installation and initial irrigation.

1300 ft ==144 yards + 5% for cutting/wastage= 151 yards x 5.50 = 830.50

Your market might not tolerate this level--only you kow your clients limits!

I'm between $0.75 and $1.00/ sq ft depending on the size of the yard. Usually over 1000 sq ft, I start going down in price. This includes minor prep work to smooth out the dirt and pull rocks.
