    depends
    do you have a machine to move the sod?
    are there a lot of cuts, or is it one big open area?

    on half of it i have to put down top soil and the rest is dead grass,weeds. I plan on tilling it, leveling it then sodding it by hand. the so will be on my trailer right next to where i am laying it.

    just to lay the sod down real quick, i'd say 2-3 hours.

    if you're tilling and adding soil, i'd plan on a full day.

    have you layed sod before?
    put down a starter fertilizer before laying sod.
    keep the seems tight.
    you can use a carpet knife to cut the sod, or a flat spade or hand edger.
