Do not improperly lay your new sod. Your soil should be prepared before you lay the sod. Remove any weeds, and break the soil up into a fine tilth. Gently compact the soil until it is flattened. Be sure the soil is thoroughly moist. Staggered rows with offset joints is the best way for the sod to be laid out. Tamp down the sod so it has a flat and even surface, then using some extra soil, fill the gaps between. You will have to water the sod every day for 2 weeks, and then it should be firmly rooted to the ground, and able to be walked on.
