with this weather coming up its the PERFECT time to get sod down. last weekend when i talked to grass pad it was still too wet to cut but they anticipated having it in stock this week sometime. you can't overwater sod, especially for the first couple weeks it's down. i find it hard to even water it enough. i'm bidding a sod job tomorrow afternoon and wish i could do it this weekend but thats not gonna happen.
sod is the easiest thing in the world to install bud, just stagger your edges and stake any of it on steep slopes. I find it best to get some bright electrical tape and put a ''flap'' on the stakes so you can go back and pull them out after the roots take hold. fertilize and water water water after laying down.
