    Hey i am currently laying my first yard in sod tomorrow. It was suppose to go down today BUT we had a piece of equipment to break. Well i used a harley rake on the yard today and now it still needs some work. How do i build a drag? I have tried a section of a chain link dog fence BUT it doesn't work well... it leaves marks that are deeper where the bars are. I need to figure out some other way to do this... Suggestions are much appreciated and needed ASAP!!!!

    If you are using the harley on a skid, you can angle it in deeper and do several passes. Also if you have a tooth bucket, scarify the soil with that first, then use the harley. Or do donuts w/ the skid.
