    I put out 3600 SF of Sod this past weeknd and I charged 650.00 for the labor and the sod was paid for in addition to the labor. I got the sod for 85.00 for 450 SF pallets and had it delivered. Put out 8 pallets at 85.00 per and the 650.00 labor and th 150.00 delivery charge and the final cost to the customer was 1480.00. There you go hope it helps some.
