    I've pretty much stuck to maintenance, I've been getting alot of people asking for sod and mulch installs, I dont know alot about it so I need your guys help..

    client wants 275 sq ft of sod installed, and 575 sq ft of mulch installed, he also wants a weed barrier put down before the mulch

    Now lets see, if I did my research right

    Sod installation, $1 per sq ft = $275
    Mulch installation, $80 per yard = $560

    Total = $875

    does top soil come included in the sod price or is it seperate, and if so, how do I price that per yard? same question for the weed barrier - thanks guys appreciate any help

    Is the area bare ground where you are sodding? Are you creating the mulch bed or remulching an existing bed?

    Since the sod area is so small, you should have a minimum for sod, like $500 or something. My minimum is $700 unless already preped.

    For mulch, how much are you buying it for?
    Also, weed barrier is more, so is topsoil.
