I live in Michigan and I am doing my first sod job. I have measured different pieces of the lawn to give them a price for every piece. I just want to know the relative charge to lay a square foot of sod with materials. I have heard that a dollar is a good price but i am not sure if this is right given the different prices of material. I am going to have to cut out a good majority of the lawn and will have to rent a sod cutter for $80 a day which will probably only take one day. I can get a yard of top soil for $24 and a pallet with 900 square feet for $185. What would be a good price per square foot.
