Sod on top of crabgrass

With his OK, I laid a roll of sod on top of a heavily crabgrass-infested part of my neighbor's lawn, (not irrigated). By 24 days, September 17 the sod had killed the crabgrass and good grass underneath it. The sod had tacked down and settled in slightly. It turned brown at first, in the first three days--and then I began to water it for a few minutes every day. Then my neighbor hired some kid to mow it with a lawn tractor--and it was scalped due to the slope near the road. Recovering slowly.

Crabgrass is looking a bit brownish. Low temp last week was 44. Light rain tonight.
A single sprout of nutsedge has appeared in the sod. A few small grubs have appeared.
