Sodding Cost per Square Foot
Sod installation jobs are quoted per square foot. Our Sodding rates include all labor involved in preparing the grounds, leveling the soil, and installing the turf. In addition, cost of sodding per square foot includes 1″ inch layer of Grow Max soil, freshly cut sod, and high quality fertilizer.
The main determinant of sodding cost per square foot is the size of the lawn. The larger the area is, the lower cost per square foot of sodding will be. Keeping Sodding cost in mind, we never compromise the quality of materials used, and level of service provided.
While our pricing schedule for Sodding in Toronto and GTA is quite standard, each garden and client is unique. We take the time to measure your property, evaluate the quality of soil, asses the level of weed infestation, Raccoon risk, etc’ – to provide you with the most accurate Sodding cost estimate – keeping in mind the importance to create sustainable turf around your house.
There are several factors affecting the cost of Sodding (Turfing) a new lawn:
- Project size – the larger the area to be sodded the lower will be the cost per square foot.
- Quality of existing soil – depleted, clay soil requires more than just one inch of soil to be worked in. We carefully evaluate each project, and advise on soil requirements – our goal is that you install a new lawn only once, for many years to come.
- Grading issues – uneven areas, or significant changes to the terrain, may affect the cost of installing a new lawn.
The process of sodding (turf installation) is simple, and very straightforward (click here for a detailed outline):
- We prepare the land, and make sure it is clean, which is the key for successful Sodding job. In order for turf (sod) to remain green over time, the soil must be rich with minerals, so the roots would take and have enough nutrients to continue their growth. For that reason, we use Grow max– a wonderful substance to use for sodding, planting etc’. Grow-Max is the best and the highest quality of soil for Sodding (turf installation) in Toronto and the GTA area.
- Next, the land is leveled using a heavy roller. The grading is done according to plan designs or customer specifications.
- Before the sod is installed, the freshly leveled soil is enriched by a natural, phosphorus reach fertilizer, to encourage healthy and rapid growth. Our fertilizers are natural, and most certainly pesticide-free.
- Finally, we lay the sod (turf) down, and immediately , you have a brand new lawn!

When we called Niko’s, Greg came by right away to give us an estimate and he was very helpful in answering any questions we had. Once the [sodding] job was complete, we even received detailed instructions on how to care for our new lawn which was very helpful! They really care about taking pride in their work and I have never seen such great customer service like this in a long time! They re-sodded our lawn on a very hot day, but still did a fantastic job! Plus our neighborhood really enjoyed the “sod” covered van, it’s very creative!– Robyn Cramer-Goodis
