    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.

    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.
