    If you are going to prep the site free of debris and include fert/soil conditioner our price would be 25800 for rhizome forming fescue. If the site is already prepared for sod our price would be 15000.

    i agree!. I could do just the install for around that price if the lawn is prepped and ready. But for a removal, prep, and install, price would be closer to $25k.

    Around here sod costs at least 50 cents a square foot. usually charge 1.25- 1.50 to prep and sod. So....prob $50-$75k, but that would change depending on sod prices, etc. by you.

    That is alot of sod to move around. Anytime I get a big job like that, I will always call Western Sod here in Az and have them do it and I mark the price up 15%. Never fails. If anything happens they warranty the sod so I dont have to even show up to the job site. I make 15% and didnt do a thing.
