|how can I get rid of weeds on a lawn with no grass prior to laying down sod?|
|You can hand dig, rototill and then rake the weeds out, or apply a weed killer such as Round-Up. After using a weed killer it will be necessary to rake or rototill to remove the dead weeds and their roots. Once you've done that and raked the area level, you can install sod.
Best wishes with your new lawn!
