Anyone have any idea of sod cost? Anyone have a referral for the shoreline in CT? I am installing garden and the paths will be grass. I figure about 1200 sq. ft. of the area would be grass. Should I prep the screened topsoil before I hire someone to lay the sod. I have sent a soil sample to the lab and should have the results in a few days. I am a total amateur when it comes to grass! The pathways are 4 ft. wide or more and I would like to do this right the first time.
