Ground Prep:

For Sodding or Stripping an area, till the soil and inch or two deep and lay Sod solidly or in strips.  Alternate the ends & middles of sod pieces like brick when laying Sod.  Butt each piece tightly against the others.  Provide good moisture for the first week or two when water is needed.

A firm well pulverized, weed free seed bed is best.  Creating a slight slope or crown can present later drainage problems.
