    Someone asked me to install some sod at their house(I've never done this before).Theres 4 strips that have to be put in,all about 32' X 4',the sod costs $3.99 for a 2X5 sheet.I have to dig and rake out an area,mix in some top soil and cut the sod into curves.What would be a fair price?Thankyou for any help you may give me,BASIC.

    If there are curves and such you will probably need 15 of those 2x5 sheets.

    Total cost for soil is $60.

    How much top soil do you need?

    How long will it take to dig out what is already in that spot?

    Sounds like a $150.00 job without looking at it.

    By the way, find cheaper sod.
