Sod should be laid correctly. Before laying the sod, the soil must be prepared. Eradicate any weeds and work the soil until it's very fine. The next step is compacting your soil and carefully leveling it. Be sure the soil is thoroughly moist. Staggered rows with offset joints is the best way for the sod to be laid out. Even out the surface of the sod by firming it down flat, filling any available gaps with a handful of dirt. For the best results, you need to water the sod every day for a two week period. After this time the sod will have rooted into the soil and can be now walked on.
