We do not need any fancy landscapers to do this simple work. We just need good reliable, affordable, hard-working workers with gardening experience who know how to lay sod and won't charge an arm and a leg. This is for a yard in Bed-Stuy. Recommendations appreciated. Experience required.
Kings Country Nursery in PLG installs sod. I think they said $2.50 to $3 a square foot installed? I can't remember. But just call them up on the phone and they'll tell you.

I recommend you call Kings County nurseries with the dimensions of the area. They will calculate how many pieces you need. Ask for a quote to have it installed as well (they do have a side landscaping business.) It's a fairly straightforward process, and depending on the size, something you could easily do yourself in two afternoons (one to level the ground, remove any rocks and add some fertilizer, and one to lay the 2x5 rectangles.) There are plenty of DIY guides online.
You need to have a plan for irrigation, as new lawns need to be watered every day, and a plan for mowing (I like the Mascot reel mower, but I've heard a good review of the Fiskars as well.)

So happy to have a rec for a reel mower. Everyone inc Kings keeps telling me you gotta use a power mower on sod. Not that we have sod, and that's one of the reasons we don't.
