    $1400, and no way its gonna take 10 hours start to finish for 1400sf, unless your doing it by yourself.

    We charge depending on the amount of finish grading involoved and debris removal.
    $0.65/sq. ft. for minimal raking and debris
    @1400 = $910.00
    $1.15/sq. ft. if we grade it with a machine and then rake it for sod.
    @1400 = $1610.00

    We have to pro-rate the price based on the amount of work involved. I would say you would be safe somewhere in this range as well.

    Lawnworks, thanks for the conversation yesterday. I have started to reconsider limiting my grass cutting. Not to interup the initial post....please continue.

    $1425. Add $325 for a temporary watering system if needed. It should take about 3 hours to lay and trim that much sod if the pallets are dropped at the area to be sodded. 2 hours tops to finish grade. Factor in your time for transport and set up as well as clean up.

    2 guys to lay sod with a 3rd to clean up or what ever else needed can be added as well.
