You'll need to properly lay sod. Be sure to get your soil prepared before you start laying the new sod. Take out any weeds, then mix up the soil into a tilth that's fine. Compact the soil lightly and firmly. Be sure to create a flat surface. Dampen the soil completely. When laying down sod, create staggered rows with offset joints. Even out the surface of the sod by firming it down flat, filling any available gaps with a handful of dirt. The sod requires water on a daily basis for two weeks, then the roots will have taken hold and ready to be walked on.
The quick and drastic change in the weather conditions can shock your plants and cause them to die. It’s important that you gradually change temperate conditions over time. That your plants can adjust. Put them outdoors in the sun for no more than two hours the first day. Over a period of several days, slowly increase the time they're allowed to stay outside. After one week, the plants should be fully acclimated and ready to move outside.
Choose plants that'll give you the most yield at harvest time. A plant that's resistant to disease. One that's tolerant of extreme weather, will deliver a higher yield.
