    first one was pretty much dirt everywhere but the edges, so we took all the rest of the grass out, laid down 8 yards of topsoil, graded, rolled, graded again and rolled, then laid sod and rolled again.

    second job we had to take out the existing lawn, put down 3 yards of topsoil, grade, roll, grade again and then we laid the sod and rolled.

    Glad you removed the old lawn. I've seen a lot of people just rake it out and plop down new sod.

    never seen that or heard of it. I dont see how sod can grow that way, and if it does, i bet weeds would eventoully penetrate through

    thank you. weve done about 20 of these this season.

    has anyone noticed when they do sod jobs and pay with a CC vs Check that the people who pay with CC's dont take as good care of their lawn as if they paid with a check. Im not saying this goes for everyone who uses a CC, but for quite a few ive noticed this.
