Step 5: Laying Sod

Finally, before adding sod to the newly tilled ground make sure you have leveled the yard and laid in a layer of rich, organic soil. Then lay in the sod making sure you stagger the joints and tighten the seams. A carpet knife is ideal for cutting the sod. It's also best to lightly water the sod behind you as you go and water thereafter for next three weeks.
