Properly lay your sod. Prior to laying the sod, prepare your soil. Take out any weeds, then mix up the soil into a tilth that's fine. Lightly. Firmly compact the soil, making sure it's flat. Afterward, you want to make sure the soil is moistened. Be sure to stagger the rows of sod. The joints should be offset like bricks in a wall. Press the sod down firmly so that the surface is flat and even. If there are gaps remaining, fill them with a bit of soil. Water the sod everyday for the first two weeks until the roots grow enough.
