You will need to properly lay sod. The soil requires preparation before sod can be laid. Pull out any weeds and break up the soil. Compact the soil firmly but lightly, and make certain it is flat. Be sure the soil is thoroughly moist. You want the sod laid down in staggered rows, and the joints to be offset from each other. Cut away extra sod and save it to fill in gaps you may create later. According to your climate, you will likely need to water the new sod daily over a period of a couple of weeks. This will insure proper root formation and establishment.
