Make sure you work with a moist soil. Sod must be arranged in staggered rows; each joint should offset one another. After the sod has been flattened to an even surface, you can use soil to fill any remaining gaps. Sod has to be watered daily for two weeks, and then it can be rooted.

Typically, seeds should be planted at a depth that is equal to three times their size. Some seeds you do not want to bury because they require light in order to grow.
