Sod should be laid correctly. Get your soil ready before you lay your sod. Remove the weeds, then break up the soil into fine tilth. Next, you want to make the soil compacted by applying light but firm pressure. Make sure the soil creates a flat surface. Water the soil until it is saturated. You want the sod laid down in staggered rows, and the joints to be offset from each other. Make sure that the sod forms an even, flat surface, and if you have any gaps show between the sod, fill them with a little bit of soil. Water your sod daily for a fortnight, which is enough time for it to root and be able to withstand foot traffic.
The handles of your tools can double as clever rulers. Tools that have long handles such as rakes, hoes and shovels can be used in place of a measuring stick. Lay the handles on the floor, then run the measuring tape down next to them. Label the distances with a permanent marker. This modified ruler will serve you well as you begin working in your garden.
It’s sometimes possible to save certain plants from winter cold by bringing them inside. Try to save plants that are expensive or that are resistant enough to handle the transition. Carefully dig around the rootball and replant in an appropriate pot.
