Replacing Sod

When replacing sod, the following steps are recommended:

  • Cut out the dead or damaged area to about 2 cm deep.
  • Rake the soil and add fertilizer, according to manufacturer’s directions.
  • Lay down the new piece of sod.
  • Step on it or roll it to ensure good contact with the soil.

Keep the new seed and sod well-watered until the new grass is established.
