HOW TO INSTALL SOD
Prepare the Soil
First, you have to prepare the soil where you will lay sod. You need to loosen the top few inches and then lay fresh compost if possible. you can also add some type of soil, such as clay-based or sand to help with drainage as well.
Lay Your Sod
You’ll want to spread out the compost and other soil additives on your lawn until it is level. Lay the first layer as straight as possible. If there is a fence line, this is a good way to keep the sod line straight. You’ll want to not walk on the sod when laying it, and you’ll want to ensure there are no wrinkles or loose areas. The next rows should be staggered like laying bricks would be. Make sure the rows are tight against one another with no gaps.
Water The Sod
You’ll want to water your sod thoroughly right after sod installation to help the soil settle. Stay off the sod as much as possible for the first week. Continue watering every day for a week, and then slowly cut back to a normal summer watering schedule.
