How Much Does a Sod Lawn Installation Cost?

At Sod and Seed, a lawn installation for areas under 2,000 sq ft (ca. 186 m²) has a flat rate of $800.00 plus the price of the sod. This flat rate includes our installation crew coming to your location for a full lawn installation, cutting out the lawn to ensure adequate trims that fit your area, and removal of all scraps and excess material to be disposed of by our team. Remember, at Sod and Seed, Inc. all of our orders are cut to ship and guaranteed to be delivered within 24 hours. Unlike large department stores, our sod is never held in stock and always delivered fresh from the farm. Our lawn installation services only include the actual sod installation, it does not include removal of the old lawn or preparation of the area.

What Should I Expect from a Sod Lawn Installation?

Knowing what to expect from a sod lawn installation is a great question. The simple and short answer is three main steps: remove the old lawn, prepare the soil, and install your new sod. Of course, each one of these steps can be complex, depending on the landscape, soil conditions, climate, and many more factors. However, this is the general process. You should also expect to set up an irrigation system. This can be a sprinkler system which should be installed before your new sod is laid out, or an oscillating sprinkler set-up. You should also expect the prepped area to be rolled multiple times to ensure an even, flat surface before laying down your new sod. We cannot stress this step enough in the process! Please reference the picture above for what a flat, even surface should look like. Also, expect to have to roll the lawn after the new grass is installed.

*At the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic and Shelter in Place orders, our company made changes to our tear-out or preparation of soil services. This was to ensure we kept our customers, staff and products safe. We are working to provide preparation and installation services, but in the meantime our services only include delivery and installation of prepared areas.

  • We have an Enduro lawn on our property, and we love it. We’ve had it for about six months now since Sod and Seed installed it in our backyard. It’s beautiful and green all year round. I wanted to let you know that I have been delighted with the Enduro Sod that I’ve purchased from your company. Thank you a lot, Sod and Seed.

  • I have been having issues with my lawn lately. I was planning to hire a lawn care service to fix the problem. I think I have already found them. ;)
