    A client wants to install sod on 80% of their 1/3 acre lawn. We've done some entire lawns before, but there was no grass on them. Should they/we spray Roundup or something on the existing grass/weeds to kill it before laying sod? Any other prep suggestions before laying (rough up the ground, topsoil, etc.?)

    Do it right. Kill it, sod-cut it. Install it.
