    I laid new centipede sod to cover up an old flower bed. I laid topsoil over it prior to laying the sod. I have read and understand how to prepare a yard for new sod. I have already laid sod on a portion of the yard that I was able to dig up. However, a large section of the yard has exposed tree roots that prevents me from digging up the old grass. What will happen if I lay the new sod over these areas? What would be the best way to prepare this area for the new sod? The old grass is pretty barren. Will it take root if I continue to water it heavily over the next couple weeks? Thanks
