Laying New Sod with Soil3

How to prepare your lawn to lay new sod:

  • If renovating an existing lawn, destroy the current vegetation.
  • Prepare the site by grading so that the soil slopes away from foundations and buildings, thus avoiding drainage problems.
  • Using Soil3 humus compost: Soil3 should be mixed with the top layer of existing soil. Just raking the Soil3 into the existing top soil is usually sufficient.
  • Smooth the soil, remove rocks, roots, clods, and vegetation.
  • Water heavily to see if water puddles in any low spots, and if it does, add soil and/or regrade to eliminate low spots.
  • Keep soil surface 1/2" below walks and drives. Tilled soil will settle some.
  • Our experience shows that no preplanting fertilizer is necessary when using Soil3.
  • Apply and rake in dolomitic lime based on soil test results and/or according to the formulas below.

1 cubic yard of Soil3 will cover 1,000 square feet.
