Frequently Asked Questions — FAQ's


Q. What’s a ballpark cost for sod installation?
A.The cost of sod installation varies based on size of your lawn project, the sod variety and location. Calculate your estimate based on square footage (see sod calculator). All installations require a minimum purchase of 1 pallet.  Pallets range from 400-600 sq.ft, (use 500 sq.ft. for your own calculation). Add 15% contingency for waste associated with cuts around landscape beds and features, sidewalks, driveways, etc. 

Based on lawn installations at 5,000 sq.ft. you’ll earn a 50% discount on sod and an installation cost as low as $0.18/sf to $0.65/sf; (varies based on your location).  Smaller project costs are higher.  Contact us for pricing to meet your specific needs.  Total costs include sod, sod delivery, installation, scraps and pallets removed…plus a one-year guarantee!
