Sod lawns can be started almost any time of year, except when weather is very cold. It’s also best to avoid installation during a summer heat wave. Water the planting area thoroughly the day before the sod is delivered.
Other tips include:
- Time the delivery of the sod so you can sod the area in a single day
- When you lay out the strips, stagger them so the ends aren’t adjacent
- Roll the entire lawn with a roller half-filled with water
- Water once a day
- Mow for the first time when the grass is one-third taller than its optimum height
