I moved into a new home in september, and the sod was laid late aug, early sept.. It was still hot, and im not sure how much the grass got watered.. It was slightly dormant due to being on the pallet for unknown amt of time, so im not sure how well it will look... It doesnt look dead, just dormant.. however being new, and with a fair amt of traffic having been on it, its pretty thin in alot of spots, compaired to my neighbors that was sodded after mine, with thicker,better looking sod... What is anyones recomendation on spreading sand on the entire yard, for leveling and filling in shoe prints,etc.. I want to thicken the yard, and feel that thickening the base is the start. Ive seen red sand spread throughout a new sod yard once before.. I need opinions.. AND I have a slight drainage problem in my back yard that I will be taking care of in the spring with a french drain system... which I know is stunting the growth because of moss growing on the dirt... opinions and suggestions please!!!!
