How to lay sod
If your lawn is damaged or full of weeds, it's time to start over. You have two choices: reseed the lawn or lay sod. Seeding is more affordable and requires less effort, but it takes longer to get the green lawn you want.
What is sod,
A farm that farms your sod plant the same day it arrives can make it a phoenix. Laying sod can be tedious and time-consuming if you don't know how to do it properly. Competent people with a good knowledge of what they are doing can lay sod within 24hrs of harvesting. So long as the plant has not been damaged in any other way, such as by herbicide or other chemical means, it is possible to lay sod within 24 hours of harvesting. There shouldn't be any issues with survivability as long as the vegetation hasn't been killed in any other way (e.g.
Remove the Old Grass
Remove any soil or grass before you lay the sod. Your yard will thrive if it has at least one inch of soil. A sod cutter is basically two rectangular frames with sharp blades on one end. The sod cutter cuts through roots and leaves behind dirt at the cutting point. This is the same way that rolls are delivered to farmhouses.
Prepare for the Soil
Soil preparation is key to a successful sod installation in Phoenix. You can use a garden rake (also known as a bow-rake) to level the soil and break down large pieces of dirt. This will make it easier to plant new roots. Add layers of lawn soil on top to help your roots bond quickly with your native plants. You should not place them over existing grasses, as this could lead to their death.
Put the sod
Make sure you first water the soil with a hose or sprinkler before you start laying sod. Next, remove any footprints from the previous piece of laid sod. Roll it along the longest edge of concrete and landscaping. The next piece can be removed from any footprints. Then roll another roll onto the pieces, making sure that there are no gaps.
Trim Your Edges
The lying sod rolls are nearly done. You might find that some edges are uneven. Don't worry! Don't worry! Don't worry! Simply fold the grass back and use sharp scissors to trim it down. Make sure to smoothen any spaces between the soil and the grassy edges.
Water the new sod every day for two to six weeks. Next, test the grass by taking a corner and ensuring that it is not too dry. Continue to water until the grass is bonded with the soil beneath it. You should also fertilize it.
