My company focuses on Commercial Maintenance, Design and Installing Landscapes-Hardscapes. Looking to begin to diversify in the next year and expand our services, as we have currently met a very successful size in what we have focused on achieving. I received a call yesterday asking for an estimate to redo the front lawn with sod. It is approximately 2,500 s.f [35'x75'] It again is relatively rectangular with really no obstructions, only a 3' sidewalk running through the middle of the front lawn. I would really appreciate a mentor or two, and not anyone to bash with negativity; keep that to yourself. Will be using Fescue sod, operating here in Central to Southwest Virginia we are at about 100% clay soil. Prep-Work: Power rake the site, apply 1.00" of compost, re rake and cultivate with clay, roll. Apply organic starter fertilizer to stimulate root growth then install lay the sod? Sounds like a two-man crew job. How many total man hours would it take from start to finish for the job on average?
