Sod Installation Process

1. Prepare the Soil

Begin by preparing the soil in the area where you plan to lay the sod. This involves removing any debris, rocks, and weeds, as well as loosening the soil to a depth of about 4-6 inches.

2. Grade the Surface

Use a rake or grading tool to ensure the soil surface is smooth and even. This helps to prevent uneven settling of the sod once it’s laid.

3. Install the Sod

Begin laying the sod along a straight edge, such as a sidewalk or driveway, to ensure a neat appearance. Stagger the seams of the sod rolls in a brick-like pattern to prevent visible lines and promote seamless growth.

4. Water Thoroughly

Immediately after laying the sod, water it thoroughly to help establish good root-to-soil contact and prevent dehydration. Keep the sod consistently moist during the establishment period, typically the first 2-3 weeks after installation.

Monitoring and Maintaining Your New Sod

Regularly monitor the newly installed sod for signs of stress, such as wilting or browning. Continue to water as needed and avoid heavy foot traffic until the sod has fully rooted and established itself in the soil.
