    Just presented a customer with a proposal for new construction intstall which included sodding 4,635 ft2. They just about choked at my .39/ft2 install price because they had another bid of .21/ft2, which is my cost of sod.

    This may shock you, but the sod grower in our area is the one quoting .21/ft2 to supply and install the sod. No way I can win on this one. Thankfully most the landscaping we do is hardscaping.

    its happen to me tons of times. They sometimes ask where I get my sod from and then later know why I lost the jobs.

    Stop telling everyone where you get your sod from.
