Laying Sod in Your Backyard -- Andy Bell of Handyman Matters discusses how to lay sod. Even though seeding seems less expensive than laying sod, it does take a lot more effort, so to get a lush look sod is the way to go. You have to measure the area -- each roll of sod is about 6 square feet. First you need to order the sod and have it delivered and then you need to prepare and smooth the soil and add enrichment. Then layout the sod the way you want to plant it. You want the joints to stagger and not line up and then to roll the edges under and butt them together. Avoid using small pieces.
