I am wondering how high above the finished soil level I should install my pop-up sprinklers prior to rolling out sod.

When installing the risers, measure carefully to insure that the height is correct for the type of sprinkler head installed. The sprinkler heads should extend about 5/8-inch above the ground before sod is laid and should be level with the sod root base afterward.

Good luck with your project!
