Today’s Tip: Storing and laying sod

To store sod before you lay it, put it in a cool shaded area of your yard and keep it moist, but not soaked because overwatering makes it mushy and difficult to handle. If sod dries out it becomes brittle and won't be able to establish roots in the soil so the best bet is to have it delivered the morning you plan to lay it.
