    I have a customer who installed a 20x30ft area of sod herself for her dog. Her house is being built or finishrd I guess since she lives there. She asked me to core aerate this fall and it was just installed in June. It has taken well but I dont know much about sod. There is no thatch build up so I told her I didnt think it needed it. Also can you roll this sod in the fall before the snow flies to make sure it is flat?

    What type of sod is it?
    Will you need to re seed it? I wouldn't think so, but just asking.
    It wouldn't hurt as long as its completely knit together and rooted.
