How much does it cost to sod your yard?

If you plan on sodding your yard, expect to pay between $250 and $1,250.

Other factors will also affect your cost, including delivery prices, any prep work that needs to be done and additional labor costs.

Read our cost guide, “How much does sod installation cost?

When should you lay sod?

Sod can be laid any time of the year, though the best time to do so is in the spring or early fall. During this time, temperatures are cooler but grass is still growing.

Summer isn’t ideal for laying sod (but still possible), as the high temperatures demand extra watering that can not only drive up your water bill. It can also make conditions ideal for mold and fungi.

Can you lay sod over existing grass?

There are differing opinions about this topic, which is why you should talk to a sodding professional near you to find out if it’s possible to lay sod over your particular lawn. In some cases, it might be possible. For example, some professionals say the new sod will kill the existing grass underneath and release nutrients that will benefit the new sod.

However, others believe the old grass will disrupt the sod's ability to take root in the soil, and it will die due to a lack of nutrients.

Do I need to rototill before laying sod?

Whether you rototill before laying sod depends on your preference, but your ground needs to be prepared for the sod to take root in the soil. A rototiller makes it easy to till up compacted earth so that new sod can easily take hold, but there are other methods you can do. Consult with a sodding professional to discuss which preparation steps should take place before laying sod.

Who can lay sod near me?

Landscapers and sod installation specialists can lay sod. When choosing a professional to lay sod in your yard, read their ratings and reviews from customers. Also, search for photos that showcase actual work done by the pro. And always get cost estimates from several sodding professionals so you can get an idea of how much you should pay for their services.

How can I find out if a landscaper or lawn care professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To consult national guidelines on essential COVID-19 service providers and see whether a lawn care professional qualifies, visit a page on CISA’s website called Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This website contains 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors that you can search through. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure so you should also check your city or state’s government website.  

Can I use digital payments to pay for outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing, tree trimming and other similar services?

Many outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing and tree trimming companies will likely accept some form of digital payment instead of cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely causing more businesses to adopt digital platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash and Google Pay.

Search professionals’ online profiles to see if they list digital payment services, and ask them about their payment policies during a consultation call.

Does a landscaper or lawn care professional need to enter my home?

Because landscaping and lawn maintenance take place outdoors, it is unlikely that these professionals will need to enter your home.

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, practice social distancing at all times -- even with professionals doing work outside. You can minimize exposure during a consultation by using a video chat service. And when you pay, you can use a digital payment service like PayPal. Discuss strategies with any lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming and lawn care companies you may be considering.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a landscaper or lawn care professional when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a landscaper or lawn care professional, you can take safety precautions on the worksite by not making any physical contact, keeping at least 6 feet between you and the pro(s) at all times and using digital payment platforms instead of cash or check.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a landscaper or lawn care professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation call with a lawn care professional or landscaper during the COVID-19 pandemic, take advantage of digital technologies to avoid face-to-face exposure. When searching for lawn mowing, landscaping and lawn care companies online, ask if they’ll do a video call to assess the job and give you an estimate. You can also go over strategies for completing the job and conducting virtual payments to stay safe.

The price is right and the people are wonderful! After several extremely high bids on new sod they were by far the best price and had the new sod laid in less than a week from when I first met with them. Highly recommended.

Antonio's landscape will be my go to company for anything related to landscaping and sprinklers. I would recommend this company in a heartbeat to anyone considering sod installation or sprinkler repair. Fernando and his crew were very professional, helpful, and the quality of service/work done was phenomenal. He and his crew take pride in their work and the end product shows that. Fernando even helped with our sprinkler system. We've had two companies prior to Antonio's landscape work on our sprinklers and the only thing we got from them was ripped off! Fernando, with Antonio's landscape, came and repaired two sprinkler heads, installed another, and replaced most of the nozzles to make sure that our sod had sufficient water coverage; and his price was so reasonable. He seemed mad that the other companies (who did nothing to help us) charged us so much! If you are considering sod installation, definitely go with Fernando at Antonio's landscape. His sod price was about the same as other companies we received quotes from, but he was able to come and complete the install 3 weeks faster than any of the other companies and the quality is just superb.

Damon and his crew did an excellent job of removing the old lawn, spreading new topsoil and laying the new sod. They arrived on time and completed the job the same day. For any future needs I will call DB Landscaping.

DB Landscaping Services did an excellent job of sodding my back yard on June 8, 2017. Damon, the owner, was very punctual, dependable, and personable. He also did some rock work on the side of the house for a very reasonable price. I would recommend DB Landscaping Services wholeheartedly!!!

Antonio did an excellent job! He did a sod tear off, till and install and I’m very pleased with everything. He was very polite and professional. Great rate and did it quickly. I’ll be hiring him again soon for additional landscape work. Antonio is exactly the kind of person I was hoping to find through Thumbtack. A+!

Steve with Worth Landscaping did an excellent job replacing my front yard, old dead ugly grass with beautiful new sod. He did exactly as he said he would do on the exact timeline. He was very professional and knowledgeable and answered all my questions about how to care for lawn as well. Highly recommend

Steve was the absolute best! I have suffered with an eye sore of a yard for about a year and in one day he has completely transformed it! I only needed some sod installed, and he went above and beyond with adding soil amendment, aerating, AND turning on my sprinklers and setting their timer because I had no clue how to. He was punctual and worked fast. His pricing is amazing and I will definitely recommend to my friends.

Vince and his team came out gave me a great estimate to do my sprinkler system and sod. They scheduled me the very next week and made recommendations for items like rock that made the yard look spectacular. They are so detail oriented and very good at communicating. I’m so happy I really can’t stop looking at my yard!!!!! It was so ugly and now it’s our oasis. Very highly recommend!!!

I can't say enough horrible things about this company/man. We contacted Wes Bauer for Sod Installation in our yard. His quote included vegetation removal which we needed because we had a small tree growing in the middle of our yard. We accepted his proposal which he had sent a couple of times begging us for our business. We never signed a contract agreeing to anything. He never sent one to us for us to sign. We found out very quickly that Wes was IMPOSSIBLE to get ahold of. And this project that should've taken 2-3 days MAX, ended up taking two months! We have a regular sized residential yard....no reason to take so long. Then the day Wes said he finished, we went out to look at the hard and not only was the tree stump left in the middle of our yard, a bare patch was surrounding it. We clearly said to remove the tree and stump, and to cover the spot with sod. The edging around half the yard was not trimmed and the job was half finished. We were so mad at him and so done dealing with his lack of communication that we finished the yard ourselves. Then we start payments. $400 a month. We sent cash to his PO box twice totalling $800. We were then summoned to small claims court for "never paying anything". This man stole $800 from us!!! So we show up to our court date to fight this, and he never shows up!! To his OWN court date!!! We ended up paying $800 more than his original quote because we didn't have a receipt proving we sent money. This guy is a scam and unprofessional in every sense of the word. He is impossible to contact and he stole from us. He ruined our yard and waisted our time. Please go to someone else and don't risk your money or time on this guy/company. And always have a contract with finish dates and a set price signed before any work is done. We have been dealing with problems from this guy for 5 months now!!! Absolutely ridiculous and uncalled for. Never give your business to him. I wish we had gone somewhere else
