    i need help, this is the first clean-up/sod job i've gotten, and i have no idea what a sod job is going for here in central florida. Ok, so i will have to remove a playground, rake up all the mulch, pull up the ground cover that the mulch and playground is on, then grade the area and lay the sod. the area for sod is about 1260 sq ft. i dont want to overbid, but also do not want to kill myself and underbid. any help would be much appreciated:confused:

    how many pallets/rolls of sod will you need? How long will it take you to prep the soil and lay the sod? Take those man hours and charge by your hourly rate.
