    i have done a couple small sod jobs before but i didn't really know how to price. i threw out some numbers and they went with it, but i would really like to know how i should price. i have one job that is waiting for an estimate. the job is just a patch up job, but will require about two pallets of sod. any suggestions on how to price by the pallet or by the job would be greatly appreciated.

    120 yards isn't exactly a "patch up" job. Around here, its 4-6 dollars per yard installed, but doesnt include clean up like rototilling and such. but you have to figure out what its going to cost you, because you might be renting equipment, paying help, etc.
