    Im curious how many of you install sod and what you charge a sq ft to install it? Ive never installed it and have no idea what the going rate is.

    Figure out how many man hours it will take you to lay one pallet, which will probably be 450 or 504 sqft, multiply that by your hourly man hour rate and voi la! Also remember that conditions change, a wide open area will take less time than a small area with lots of curves etc. so use an average, or have few differnt pricing options
