Short story: I have a client who's sod was laid incorrectly and there are tons of gaps in it, but it has already settled and taken hold. Now they are willing to pay me to fix it. It's pretty bad. Any suggestions on effective ways to fix it? Long story: I live in a fairly new sub-division (the last few lots will probably go this summer). Last summer there was a house being built right behind me. I was sitting on the back deck one night when I saw the sod truck pull up. As I watched, there was only one man. I know that laying sod is usually a 3-5 man job. This guy did all the sod by himself. His was just rolling it out, and never bothered to pull it together. It was a couple of weeks before the house was actually finished. The head contractor was watering it because we were in the middle of a drought here at the time. I kid you not the sprinklers ran non-stop for a week. The contractor came and moved them all the time, and would turn them right back on again. A bad situation all around. After letting the buyers settle in, I went down to introduce myself as a neighbor and a businessman. It was an elderly couple. Turns out the husband had fallen ~6' off a ladder and shattered his leg, so they were looking for a lawn care company anyways. I explained how the lawn was in terrible condition, but at that point, the sod had taken hold too much to re-lay it. Now they want to see if it can be fixed.
