    I don't know how it translates into Canadian money, but.....
    For sod, I charge $100 per pallet (425 sq ft) plus the cost of the sod and delivery and with NO site prep. Site prep I charge by the hour plus any disposal.

    Min $1 per square foot!!!! That is easy site prep. Also acess to area, if a bobcat can get there, dump truck....
    on average most jobs we did this year were about $1.10 per square foot. most was $1.5
    Also charge a min charge for small area's.

    If we have to prep the yard and bring in soil amendments we charge 8-10 dollars a yard.
