Anyone who's laid sod... give me an estimate for the labor here. 55'x9' area where sod needs to be torn up (will be using an edger and shovels), and then lay new sod down. I have used edgers and shovels before and I have a good technique. If anyone had any techniques for this which don't require large equipment let me know! I was thinking 4 guys to tear it up and 2 to lay it. I am included as one of the guys. 5-6 hours total (including deliverying sod) I was thinking $400-450 + cost of sod. I already did a sod job for the same lady, about half this size and charged her $250.
