    Ah well, now you see it's not easy as just laying sod.

    $600 + tax

    Bobby, that's a pretty good price for sod. Well, for my area anyway. I would have to pay about $50 - $60 for the sod for 200 sq. ft. Depending on where I buy it.. Roughly $2.50 -$3 a roll (9 sq. ft.)

    16 cents sq ft is what we buy it for. why the peat moss? anyhow, 5 yds soil @$65 per yd=$325. id let the sod go for $225. about $550 plus tax for the job. no prep, right? not removing anything, etc

    does anyone have a set price for installing sod by the sq ft???
    just the sod installation, not including prep.

    I used to
    I am finding that lately I am pricing higher and higher and getting the work. Also pending on my mood and who the customer is.

    as my previous post you said just a price to lay the sod, i charge $1 a sq. ft to lay sod as what my price reflected. Any prep work is obviously extra along with devilery.
