Bid this: Sod Job

1450 sq ft of existing lawn, terrible condition. must be tilled, 1" of loam added everywhere. Is on 3 sides of trailer type home. Largest "square" is 225 sq ft, the rest is in narrow rectangles. no hard obstacles, easy road access. Bid job from start to finish, including fert, rolling, tilling, re-grading, materials and all. Please also state your material costs. After a few (good) responses, I will post my bid. Please don't get off subject, no talk of seeding or hydroseeding, no asking why I am rototilling, no nothing, just bid it like you KNOW this is the way it has to be done (it is). Thanks guys.

$2.75 per sqauare yard is the going rate in DFW. Plus the cost of the sod and a delivery fee. The $2.75 price does include tilling.

Hope this helps.

I have no idea what it would cost to add the loam. You might want to think about adding a little bit to the price since you'll be working in so many small areas. You'll be doing a lot more cutting since you have smaller "squares".

Good luck,
