    I have to quote a guy on a sod job.
    myself and a worker, 1600 square feet.
    the usual stuff: rototill, organic soil and laying.
    I estimate 170 rolls of sod and 5 cubic sq. ft of soil.
    Does this sound about right??
    And how long does anyone think this should take us??

    5 cubic square feet of soil, or 5 cubic yards of soil

    dont know if thats american or canadian money and your area may be different but my estimate would come in about $1,000 cheaper
