Do not improperly lay your new sod. Your soil should be prepared before you lay the sod. Eradicate any weeds and work the soil until it is very fine. Lightly, but firmly compact the soil, making sure it is flat. Make sure the soil is thoroughly moist. Avoid laying your sod in straight rows with all of the seams lining up. Instead, stagger the rows for a more pleasing visual effect. Make sure the sod is firmly placed to ensure a surface that is sufficiently flat and even. Also, make sure to use soil to fill the areas where there are gaps in the sod. Water your sod daily for a fortnight, which is enough time for it to root and be able to withstand foot traffic.

Next, use a Sharpie to accurately label the distance between each one. When you decide to work in the garden again, you will now have a ruler at your disposal.
