Question: Approximately how long should it take for one person to install a pallet of sod? (about 450 square feet)
Top Answer (54% of 24 votes): 1 to 2 hours.

In most cases, it should take no longer than two hours for one person to lay a pallet of sod. However, this may not include the time required to properly prepare the soil.

Answer: 1 to 2 hours
Explanation: Depends on where sod is dropped and where its being installed, such as back yard vs front with sod dropped on curb

Answer: 1 to 2 hours

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".
