    Well I charge a extra .10 or .12 cents a sqft. Unless its a small job, then I just toss in a few hrs labor @ $50 a hr.

    Bear in mind this is in Utah. ... but I can't imagine it being too much different.

    I'm above .12 cents below .20 cents this is just to lay sod only

    $100/day, plus expenses, as long as the day is over by lunch... double-time if I sweat... :)

    I always estimate time according to what I believe needs to be done, from prep thru the first week of check-ups...
    but no one even bothers asking me any more...

    the best job possible and will not break the bank, and they know it...
