    I don't think you could fit a double wide on a 60 x 60 ft. lot. Is that metric or something?

    I do all the yards the same weather it is a 30k or 900k home. To answer your question is tough. Location, location, and location. We dont know what you pay for top soil in your area and going rates for labor. It will vary on location.

    Seeding - not sod. We actually get that much to finish grade, seed, fertilize, and mulch.

    WOW, I'm moving south about 70 miles! The average lawn here is about $ 1400.00 plus topsoil (about $ 350 per load, spread)

    DZ - I think the average in Madison is only slightly more than in your area. The company I work for does very few jobs that are just lawn installs. Most of our lawn installs are part of larger commercial contracts. The price per square foot is a bit lower for these contracts but it is still above the average price.
