Properly put down your sod. Before laying the sod, the soil must be prepared. Pull any weeds that you see, and work to break up the soil so that it is a fine tilth. Compact the soil lightly and firmly, and be sure to create a flat surface. The soil should be adequately moistened. Stagger your sod so that each joint offsets from joints in adjacent rows. Make sure the sod is firmly placed to ensure a surface that is sufficiently flat and even. Also, make sure to use soil to fill the areas where there are gaps in the sod. Water the sod for two weeks and then you can safely walk on it as it will have had time to properly root.
To prevent your plants' systems from becoming shocked, you need to gradually transition them from higher to lower temperatures. Start by placing your plants outside for a few hours only.
