Learn the proper way to lay sod. Your soil should be prepared before you lay the sod. Eradicate any weeds and work the soil until it's very fine. Compact the soil lightly and firmly. Be sure to create a flat surface. Moisten the soil thoroughly. Sod must be arranged in staggered rows. Each joint should offset one another. Tamp down the sod so it's a flat and even surface, then using some extra soil, fill the gaps between. The sod needs to be watered daily for two weeks, by which time it'll be rooted and ready to walk on.
Cover fences and walls with lots of climbers. Many climbers are so robust that they can cover an unattractive wall or fence in a single growing season. it's possible to get them to grow in conjunction with trees and bushes already on the premises. Train them to drape over arbors. Some of these plants must've support. Some can attach themselves to something using their stems and tendrils. Wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle, clematis and some rose varieties are good choices for climbers.
