Answer: 2 to 3 hours
Explanation: The time will depend on how far the sod has to be moved from the pallet to its final installation. Sometimes there is no way to get a pallet into the back yard, thus adding a great deal of time from walking back and forth to the front of the house to the back.

Gary Krause Landscaping and Design
Answer: 2 to 3 hours
Explanation: This depends on the layout of the installation. A small flat area 2 hours. A backyard that has a driveway that has an incline will take up to 4 hours. That is if you are going to drop and lay the sod. I, take each and every piece and ensure that it is laid flat and end to end and staggered next to the previous line. This causes me to take up 3 hours for a pallet on a flat layout and 5-6 for a hilly layout. But my yards always look "The Best On The Block".
