  • Description:

    This is the owner and operator writing this ad and the person you will see on site to give the quote and help with the sod installation process. I guarantee our work of the proper sod installation; however, it is up to you to maintain the proper watering schedule after the installation is complete.

    We have clear cut/transparent pricing as you read in the following paragraphs and have no hidden fee. However, there is variable pricing for:soil prep work,travel distance to your location,and any other contingency that increase the labor or material costs. We have some of the most affordable pricing in the business since we reduce our internal operating costs to save you money. We strive to deliver quality work at an affordable price.

    As the before and after pictures illustrates, we did all the necessary prep work of tilling, applying the right amount of starter fertilizer and lime while leveling and grading, to ensure that the new grass thrives. Next,we install quality fresh cut sod from the farm at an affordable price. The sod installer will be on site to lay the sod as quickly as possible;thus,reducing the chance of the sod drying out or potentially dying.

    --Cost of the labor for laying sod========= $100 per pallet
    --Average cost of prep work=========== $70 per pallet


    Our average cost for preparing the the soil(Tilling,raking,leveling, removing all the vegetative debris) averages around $70 Per 500(area that covers 1 square feet area.However, prep cost vary depending on the size and the condition of the soil. Next paragraph explains more.

    The prep cost depends on the condition of your soil and the amount of debris that needs to be removed-to create the optimal conditions for your new sod to thrive. For example, here are some questions to consider when determining the amount of work/cost of pre-sod installation prep work:

    --- Does your yard have abundant amount of thick roots that need to be removed with an ax since the tiller can't cut it?

    --- Is there a lot of rocks underneath your soil?

    --- How many trash bags of debris will be filled up by the end of the prep work stage?

    --- Does your yard require additional soil to fill in the holes left from the big rocks and roots?

    --- How close can we place the pallets of sod to the place we are laying it?

    ***These are just a few examples of why prep work is not a fixed price like the cost of laying sod ($100 per pallet.-This is measurable and always constant.)Again the average prep work cost is $60 per 504 square feet(area that covers one pallet).****

    OTHER VARIABLE COSTS TO CONSIDER: --We will be happy to serve customers out of town but understand if you live 100 miles in the country then we will need to factor in travel time/cost of gas in the quote.

    **One pallet of Bermuda===========$105 per pallet(covering
    504 square feet)--Tif Grand Bermuda--Thrives in full sun or 60% shade/low maintenance

    **One pallet of Fescue============$145 per pallet(covers 504 square feet)-can install in winter time and stays green all year round.Ideal for shady areas/high maintenance

    **One pallet of Centipede=========$125 -ideal for full sun/low maintenance

    **One pallet of Emerald or Zenith zoysia============$188 per pallet(covers 450 square feet)/Best all round grass that handles sunny and shady areas well/low maintenance

    **Cost of delivery================$85 (we will make delivery for a small quantity of sod- this includes delivering as small as a half pallet that covers 250 square feet)

    **Cost of starter fertilizer======From $7 to $20 for 1200 area (depending on the brand/area it covers)

    Keep in mind that you can customize your service to fit your budget, or do the work yourself at any particular stage of the sod installation process. In some cases it may not be necessary to purchase top soil if your existing soil is in good enough shape to hold new sod:

    **Cost top soil==================== $1.14 covers 6 square feet (optional or if you soil needs it).

    ** Using a sod roller to flatten sod(optional/ enhanced option) ===================== $40 per pallet

    **Debris Haul off to vegetative landfill(optional)========= Between $50 and $175 (depending on how far the nearest landfill is from your locations. The landfill charges us between $8 and $30 for dumping debris)

    Depending the size/square footage covered, dictates how much labor/people needed to complete the job. For example, 3 pallet/1,512 square feet would only require one person to do the job. 4 to 5 pallets worth of work will require 2 people. Ultimately we want to get the sod laid on the same day of delivery to ensure its survival. However, you still have the option to pay less by reducing the labor cost but the sod laying job may take two days which increases the risk of the sod dying if not installed and watered quickly.
