    Just a quick questions.

    Pretty new to the game but, how long should it take 3 guys to do approx 2000sf of sod installation? Including prep, a 1-2" layer of additional soil for levelling and laying it down etc.. I may need to use a sod cutter to remove old patchy areas that exist as well.

    Thanks in advance.

    After prep since I have no way of knowing what you have to do or the equipment you have available, it should take 3 guys only a few hrs to lay the sod if its been placed close to the area that needs it.

    Yes, the prep work will take much longer than actually laying the sod.
