I am putting together an estimate for a woman who wants approximately 1,400 sq feet of sod cut out and 525 ft of metal edging installed around several beds and around her house. The sod cutter rental is $100 for two days and I get the edging for $450. I am the only one who will be working the job. The area is flat. Literally all I have to do is cut up and take out the sod, and install the edging. If it were you how much would you charge in addition to the $550 for materials. There is 1.5 hours of drive time involved.
