    Well, I got some extra sod that we were going to throw away. I laughed at the thought of them throwing it away because it seemed in decent shape. Well, as I got halfway through laying it, I could feel the heat (literally) and the smell that goes with already decomposing sod. They got the pallet last thursday. So my question, what would you guys do to help this sod recover? I put starter fert down before I layed the sod and cranked up the irrigation. My water program right now is twice a day at 15 minutes each zone. Any extra advice is appriciated. Thanks
