Put down sod correctly. Prior to laying the sod, prepare your soil. Remove the weeds, then break up the soil into fine tilth. Next, you want to make the soil compacted by applying light but firm pressure. Make sure the soil creates a flat surface. Make sure the soil is moist all the way through. Lay the sod in rows, and make sure the joints do not overlap. Make sure that the sod forms an even, flat surface, and if you have any gaps show between the sod, fill them with a little bit of soil. The sod needs to be watered daily for two weeks, by which time it will be rooted and ready to walk on.
Shoveling soil that is mostly clay can be difficult because of the hardness of the soil, and because it sticks to the shovel. Coat the shovel with floor or car wax, and buff it with a clean rag to make the job a lot easier. By waxing the shovel head, the clay will not be able to adhere to the surface.
When mowing your lawn do not cut it as short as possible. Cutting your grass at a taller height allows grass roots to grow deeper and stronger, which helps lessen the chance of your lawn drying out easily. Leaving the grass short makes it more prone to drying out, which leaves your lawn look really brown and yucky.
