    Hey guys, I just picked up 2 sod jobs 1 is 2500 sq ft and the other is a little over 1100 sq ft. I was wondering how much should I charge per sqft for installation.

    How much prep work needs to be done, and can you get the pallets to the location or do you have to walk it. :walking:

    How could anyone answer if you don't mention cost per pallet and delivery overhead? :hammerhead: Also, what soil amendments are you doing? What soil preps? How can you have quoted these jobs without already knowing this stuff? how do you get a job without quoting it out first? Did you get blank checks for these jobs? :confused: Are you using siduron (Tupersan?) If not, you should be.... sorry, but your post leaves me with more questions than advice.

    6-7 dollars a yard should include prep and installation unless the site needs alot of help/grading

    WOW, I can grade yard, supply & deliver sod and install for about the same as what your paying for just the sod.

    What do you think 6 bux a roll is to high?
    At a 1.10/sq ft that is over 9 a yard.
    Please tell us your pricing method.
