    Do you have to rip up the old grass? Do you need to add fill dirt?
    If not & it's just throw it down & go, It shouldn't take too long. Double the material (labor) & charge for delivery.

        As I mentioned in Chuck's earlier post, you want to put down 4" of new, black topsoil to do a proper job, otherwise the grass will thin out. The sod usually comes with starter fertilizer as well, but if not, grab some of that.
