    How long do you think it should take 1 guy to remove sod from a 15'x15' square area. He will be dumping the old sod about 40 feet away in a compost pile. No sod cutter used just pick axe, flat shovel etc..

    And please don't anyone suggest using a sod cutter

    Kenny,

    I would say that would be 1 hour if you only move it about 40 feet to your compost pile and use your handy dandy grub hoe... unless of course you plan on using the wheel barrow with the flat tire!!! :)
