Sod should be laid correctly. Be sure to get your soil prepared before you start laying the new sod. Pull any weeds and break up any clods of soil. Make sure your soil is flat and compacted. Make sure you work with a moist soil. Lay the sod in rows, and make sure the joints do not overlap. Compact the sod down so you form a flat and even surface, then fill in any crevices within the sod by using some soil. Water the sod each day for two weeks so it will become well-rooted and ready for foot traffic.
Analyze the soil before you even get started with working in a garden. Consider getting a soil analysis and working on enrichment techniques for giving your garden a vibrant and healthy environment. There are numerous places to find this service, such as your local Cooperative Extension office. The cost is well worth it to avoid a potentially ruined crop.
