    Hi everyone

    My brothers and I have a construction company and are building several new homes to sell. We are thinking about soding the lawn to add quick curb apeal. My ? is what would I expect to pay for sod for a 1/2 acre lawn. Thanks.

    Since you are a contractor, you will be able to get wholesale prices. Call suppliers, and preferably growers in your area and ask them what they would sell to you for. In my area (TX) it is 1.35-2.10/yard depending on variety. Measure your square footage and divide by 9 to get square yards. I add 5-10% depending on how much cutting to be done.
