Laying of the sod by staggering it with each new row that the seams are offset from each other. Sod is cut around all interlock, driveway, and garden surfaces.

Watering thoroughly is the most important part of the development of the root system of your new sod lawn. 

Mowing should be completed by one week after the installation. It is recommended that the lawn mower cutting height be adjusted to the highest position until the sod is fully rooted.
