Put sod down the right way. Get your soil ready before you lay the sod. Pull any weeds that you see, and work to break up the soil so that it is a fine tilth. Compact the soil gently but firmly to be certain that it is indeed flat. Water the soil until it is saturated. When laying down sod, create staggered rows with offset joints. After the sod is in place, go over the surface to ensure everything is level. Use loose soil to fill in any gaps between seams. Water your sod daily for a fortnight, which is enough time for it to root and be able to withstand foot traffic.

You can label distances using a permanent marker. Now, the next time you do work in the garden, you'll actually have a ruler at your fingertips.
