How Much Does it Cost to Have Sod Installed (2021)

One of the most frequent questions we receive here at Evergreen Turf is, “How much does it cost to have sod installed?” Depending on the size of your lawn, you can expect to pay roughly between $600 and $1,200 to have sod installed. This installation price does NOT include the cost of sod.

The most obvious factor when determining the cost of sod is the geographic area of the country where the customer lives. Since Evergreen Turf is located in the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas of Arizona, we will assume that home and business owners reading our blog are from the same area.

How Much Work Do You Need Performed?

Each customer who hires our company to install sod has unique needs and expectations. It’s best to contact us directly and talk to one of our sod specialists to get a better idea of what it will cost to have sod installed in your lawn. Please note that our crews do not perform any prep work, sprinkler work, or rototilling. If you need these things done, you will either need to complete it yourself or hire landscapers to do the prep work.

Size of Your Lawn

The size of your lawn and the amount of sod you order from us also factor into how much it costs to have sod installed. Although larger lawns cost more to sod, our company offers a price break based on the total length of your lawn. The following prices are accurate as of 2021:

  • 2,000 square feet or less: $600
  • 2,001 to 3,999 square feet: $700
  • 4,000 to 9,999 square feet: 15 cents per square foot
  • Over 10,000 square feet: 12 cents per square foot

This installation price does NOT include the cost of sod. So, as an example, let’s say you want to purchase 1,000 sq/ft of midiron sod and you want it installed. The 1,000 sq/ft of midiron would cost $760.00, the installation would cost $600.00, so your total cost would be $1,360.00 not including sales tax. Also an important thing to note, if you order sod online from our website, we offer a 10% discount off the sod cost. So in the example above, you would get a discount of $-76.00.

Benefits of Ordering Your Sod from Evergreen Turf

We understand that large sodding projects can be costly, so we are happy to offer a price break the more sod you order. Another way in which we are different from the competition is that we do not charge different installation fees based on the type of sod you order. All sod you see listed for sale on our website comes with the same installation fee. We currently stock and install the following types of sod:

  • Midiron is a popular type of turfgrass with medium-course texture.
  • Tifgreen 328 has a very fine texture and is one of the most brightly green of all types that we sell and install.
  • Tifway 419 is popular for sports fields or golf courses. This is a fine Bermuda type of grass.
  • TifGrand Bermuda has a fine texture and is extremely shade-resistant. This type is popular among private homeowners.
  • Palmetto St. Augustine is a coarse, bright green grass with excellent shade tolerance.
  • TifTuf appears almost exclusively on golf courses. It has a medium fine texture and dark blue-green color.

Evergreen Turf offers free delivery of sod orders covering 500 square feet or more or 400 square feet for the Palmetto St. Augustine brand. The free delivery offer is available to homes and businesses in Phoenix, Tucson, or the communities surrounding them. We are happy to deliver outside this region, but a service fee may apply to cover our fuel and transportation costs.

What to Expect When You Hire Evergreen Turf for Sod Installation

Our experienced crew installs your sod the same day we deliver it. We use extreme precision when laying and adhering each row of sod on your yard or business property, including when we need to cut around sprinklers and curbs. Our goal is always to leave you with a beautiful new lawn, so we make sure that no scrape marks are visible. Finally, our crews will roll the sod for good soil contact and apply a starter fertilizer to give your lawn that beginning boost it needs.
