Make a sod flyer and hand it out everytime your around sod. Its picky stuff and most people dont know how to handle it when its new.

A little organic iron goes a long way?

If you need to green up something fast just take some milorganite or similar organic food with a goodly amount of iron and it will not only green things up quick, but if you use something like plant health care's Healthy start 3:4:3, something I use in all my sod installs, you will have a fast growing root system before you know what happened.
Good luck
And if the corners are browning out because they lift up from soil contact, just take a few staples like you use to pin in weed cloth or weed block, and staple down the edges of the sod in the toughest spots. I also sometimes pack in a little topsoil or seeding mulch in the hard to moisten spots to ensure the lawn in perfect, even on the edges.
