In order for the roots of the sod to make good contact with the soil, we recommend renting a lawn roller and going over newly installed sod. It's basically an empty drum attached to a handle. You fill (or half-fill) the drum with water and roll it over your lawn. The water makes the drum heavy enough to push the sod down so it makes good contact with the soil. Hope this clarifies things for you!
