Answer: Sounds like you are well on your way to a beautiful new lawn. A roller is important - after laying the sod, rolling it will be necessary to ensure good root contact with the soil. Rollers, like tillers, can be rented from your local rental center. Fill the roller's drum with water, then use the roller to finish leveling the soil. Water the soil lightly. Lay your sod, then roll the lawn surface. The soil should be kept evenly moist, as directed on the brochure that comes with your sod. Good luck with your new lawn!
