HOW TO PREPARE YOUR GROUND FOR SOD AND INSTALLATION PART 2

**Grading And Rolling: Flatten any mounds or high spots on your soil. Take an iron rake or shovel and break apart the high points in the soil. Using a water-filled lawn roller, roll the area in two opposite directions to minimize excessive settling that might lower the top of the lawn below the level of driveways or patios.


**Measure area for Sod: Multiply the length times the width. This gives you your total square footage to order. You can Add 5% to the total for irregular shapes.


**Laying Your Sod: Before laying any sod, apply Starter Fertilizer to the entire surface to be covered with sod.

Find the longest straight edge in your yard—here, it was the fence line. Unroll the first roll of sod along it. Keep off the sod while you are installing it.


**Keeping Sod Moist: After you have laid about 200 square feet of sod, mist it with a garden hose before you finish the entire job to prevent the new sod from drying out.
