    Do you know how to install a new lawn? To even ask the question without telling us how much dirt work, leveling, dirt to bring in, fertilizer/lime, etc leads me to believe you've never done this before.

    Check out this website. WWW.RAYSBROOKSOD.COM. I use the handy little calculator function that gives you a few variables. It uses southern based sod types but you can plug in you local sod prices. The other factors you need to consider are sod cutter rental and how do you intend to dispose of old lawn. Plus you need a license to apply roundup if you are planning a kill-off of the existing turf. Make no mistake this is big time work and is more than just rolling /dropping sod. Remember, if it dies you have to replace it out of your pocket.:usflag::usflag::usflag:
