The price of sod will vary due to different factors. Installations done by Atkinson range anywhere from a few hundred square feet to a few thousand square feet. Most installations will cost between $2.5 – $3.5 per square foot. Some of the factors that affect this price are as follows:
Square footage – The size of the area is the largest cost determinant. The larger the area the better price we can offer.
Access – Typically, the existing lawn is scraped out, new topsoil is brought in, and the sod is installed. The more difficult the access the more labour time required.
Type of the Existing Material/Excavation – If the existing material is already prepared for the new sod, the installation is quite simple and quick. However, if the existing material is of poor quality and needs to be replaced with good topsoil this will increase the cost.
Project Pricing: Sod #1
This project is approximately 200 square feet. The access was very poor being in a backyard and over a deck. The square foot cost on this project was higher than normal due to the access and the small area.
The overall cost of this project was $995.
