|Before installing your sod, just dig the soil a bit and add a little compost. I'd spread an inch of compost over the area and dig it in about 3-4 inches, then set the sod on top. The compost will loosen the soil and help it hold water so the roots of the sod make good contact with the soil and will root quickly. Don't feed your sod until it is well rooted and actively growing. Enjoy your new lawn!
