    Hi Guys,

    Kind of new to the Lawn Care Business. I have a girl/lady that I work with wanting me to do the sod in her front yard of the house that she's building. It's about 6000 sq. ft. Is this job too big for 2 people? I've never installed sod on this big of yard. what kind of prep work is involved, grading, etc. and laying sod, is there any kind of top layer (sand or topsoil), we live in Alabama and the soil is like clay, so would anything have to be put down?

    I'm not experienced in sod install, but I would love to do this job to help her out not to mention the money. Would this job be too big for me?

    Also, what would you guys charge for a job like this?

    Thanks alot
