INSTALLING A NEW LAWN
2. Preparing the soil: remove all rocks, weeds, twigs, leaves, and other debris. Spread soil amendments in an even layer about one inch thick, Use a rototiller to blend the amendments into the soil. Soil tilled about 6inches deep should be good. Remove any roots or debris that may have surfaced.
3. Install a sprinkler system: irrigation contractors or local
hardware stores can help you select the irrigation and sprinklers
right for the job. Irrigation sprinkler manufactures often offer
assistance in designing your sprinkler layout.
7. After all the sod has been laid use a sod roller to go over
the new sod. Make sure there is good contact between the soil and
sod, air pockets can dry out and kill the sod. When you are finished,
water your lawn and program your sprinkler system to give the new
lawn adequate water to keep it squishy wet for the first week. After
the first week adjust your system to give the lawn a few deep waterings
per week. You should plan to mow your lawn about 3 weeks after the
Sod was laid.
