Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
If the customer purchases the sod;

I'd probably charge $3.00 per sqft of sod put down.

500 sqft = $1,500

Or maybe I'd charge the same price of how much the sod was bought for.

As for prepping the lawn, maybe charge per hour, maybe $35.00/hr.

What is involved in preping the soil? pH adjustment, fertilizing, conditioning, tilling?

I believe that's a fair price. $3,750.00 profit

... What does the area look like? Do you need to lay the sod down in the front or back of this place or both? I'm curious.
