    That price is awful low, have you bought from this supplier yet? The quality of turf you are looking to purchase may be grade F. I always get mine from Florida Turf for around 125/pallet delivered. They always have very good sod straight from the farm. The pallets are heaping full as well.

    To install is depends, what kind of preparation is required? I.E. sod cutter, tilling, raking? I you are just dropping the new stuff down then 150/pallet.

    OOOk, you are getting it straight from the farm then. Make sure that price is delivered. Delivery may get pricey if comming from pasco or the middle of the state to st. pete. Laying sod is a PITA... :waving:

    $77-$80 is going rate here for a pallet of sod and laying it.

    the sod itself is $60-$65

    If all I have to do is lay the sod, then 125.00.

    If I have to take up old sod plus lay the new stuff, then $1.05/sq ft.
