        Last time I checked I belive my pricing on sod was about $200 / pallet delivered to the site. You'd probably need just shy of 9 pallets. Call it 9 anyway. So $1800 in material + labor ... Yeah, about a buck a foot sounds good to me, that would put you at about $800 labor & leave you with some profit.

              Its quite simple to figure out what to charge no matter what your doing... Its usually materials + x% of the materials + labor + profit for your business + $ for just in case.

              Here, I will break it down for you, these are all example prices.

              Materials:
              Sod = $500
              Topsoil = $100
              Rental of Sod Cutter to remove old sod = $90
              Disposal Fees for old sod = $60
              Business Equipment depreciation expense = $250
              Fuel = $100
              This totals = $1,100

              Labor:
              3 guys x 12 hours to complete job = 36 Man Hours
              Figure 40 man hours just to be safe.
              However paying your workers $12 per hr is $480 in your labor cost.
              anyway, the equation for labor is: man hours x your hourly rate
              thus, 40 man hours x $38 = $1520
              costing you $480 in labor before taxes

              Then throw in an extra $250 for just incase, and you have yourself a grand total of $2870.00 for the job. Leaving you with a JOB NET profit of $1040.00. Keep in mind this is not total net profit since you still have to pay your insurance, vehicle payment, equipment expenses, taxes, phone, etc. but it is still good for 1 day of work.

              again, those are not my figures, they are just made up figures, but you get the idea, hopefully.

              ALSO, figure out all of your expenses (phone, insurance, payments, taxes, labor, fuel, etc. etc.) for the year and divide them by your operating weeks then divide that by days per week you work and that will tell you how much you need to bring in each day to cover your total expenses for the year.

              I hope this helps!
