Sod and Mulch bid, need help fast please

I've pretty much stuck to maintenance, I've been getting alot of people asking for sod and mulch installs, I dont know alot about it so I need your guys help..

client wants 275 sq ft of sod installed, and 575 sq ft of mulch installed, he also wants a weed barrier put down before the mulch

Now lets see, if I did my research right

Sod installation, $1 per sq ft = $275
Mulch installation, $80 per yard = $560

Total = $875

does top soil come included in the sod price or is it seperate, and if so, how do I price that per yard? same question for the weed barrier - thanks guys appreciate any help

Is the area bare ground where you are sodding? Are you creating the mulch bed or remulching an existing bed?
Its a Cinderella story outta nowhere. Former greenskeeper and now about to become the Masters champion.....

Since the sod area is so small, you should have a minimum for sod, like $500 or something. My minimum is $700 unless already preped.

For mulch, how much are you buying it for?
Also, weed barrier is more, so is topsoil.
