Pallet of sod
Sod is usually shipped on pallets of 50 yards each. Most sod dealers
charge a deposit on the pallets to ensure their return. Sod
shouldn't be left stacked on pallets for more than a day or two, so
it's best to have your lawn area ready for sodding in advance.
Lay sod pieces close together to avoid any gaps between pieces. Any
exposed edges should be covered with topsoil to help prevent drying.
Sod pieces should also be "bunched up" to ensure they aren't
stretched out during the laying process -- stretched pieces shrink
and create gaps between pieces of sod.
Thoroughly water-in the newly laid sod as soon as possible, and
continue watering often for the first few weeks until sod has
"knitted down." If possible, roll your newly laid sod a few days
after it's installed.
Since Kentucky Bluegrass is a thatch producer, be sure to core
aerate the sod once or twice a year, and dethatch as needed. Mow at
2-1/2" with a sharp blade.
