• Have the ground completely prepared before you order your sod
  • If you are not going to lay the sod within eight hours, cover it with moist burlap or stack it in the shade
  • Lay the first line of sod along a straight line such as a driveway, sidewalk or string stretch between two stakes.
  • Lay sod in a brick-work fashion
  • Stake sod on extreme slopes
  • Roll over sod with a roller to press roots to the soil
  • Saturate the area with water immediately!  One gallon of water in the first hour does more than several gallons later.
