    how much would be a good estimate for installing 1700 sq feet of sod. I have to prepare the site myself and buy the materials. There is no weeds or grass on the site so tilling would be easy. It will take me 1300 for materials which
    are 1700 sq feet of sod "st augestine" 68 bags of composte "humore" and lawn starter fertilizer. I also have to pick up the material wich is roundtrip 300 miles. I would spend around 100 dollars on gasoline. Two more laborers as well My local nursery is not an option. I came up with an idea for an estimate but i wish to see what yall think.

    1400.00 cost and 1000.00 in labor to prep, deliver and lay the sod for a total of $2400.00.
