We are starting to cut sod this Wednesday, April 21, 2021 for the season …
Always make sure to stack sod in the shade and sprinkle it with in hot or dry weather.
Begin immediately after delivery. Lay sod along the sidewalk or driveway in a straight line. Smooth the area immediately ahead with a rake.
To save time, place rolls of sod in their approximate position.
Make sure the sod edges butt up against one another. Do not overlap or leave spaces. When sodding a sloping area, lay the sod horizontally; stake the sod if necessary.
Cut off any uneven edges, wherever necessary, with a sharp knife or the edge of a shovel. Shape to fit the area.
After all the sod has been laid, fill a lawn roller with water and begin rolling your new lawn. Roll to remove air pockets and to ensure your sod makes good contact with the soil. If extremely dry, wet the newly laid sod before rolling.
