    im going to be doing my mothers boyfriends front yard which their grass i believe cant be fixed without being sodded, its burned, dry, weeded and patchy everywhere.

    how do i go about prepping it for sodding?

    rip up the existing sod?
    till the ground?
    flatten it?
    what do i need to add to the soil?
    what if there are grubs?

    Do a search on this topic and there is lots of info in the archives about prepping for sod.
