You will need to properly lay sod. Make sure you prepare your soil before you lay any sod down. Pull all the weeds and loosen the soil so the new roots can take easily. Lightly, but firmly compact the soil, making sure it is flat. Water the soil until it is saturated. Sod should be placed in rows that are staggered, where the joints connect to offset each other. Pat your sod to form an even and flat surface, fill any gaps with some soil. Water the sod for two weeks and then you can safely walk on it as it will have had time to properly root.

By weeks end, you should have plants that are ready for a permanent home outside with no problem!
