Properly lay your sod. Before laying sod, you have to make sure the soil is accurately prepared. 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. Afterward, you want to make sure the soil is moistened. Staggered rows with offset joints is the best way for the sod to be laid out. Cut away extra sod and save it to fill in gaps you may create later. The sod needs to be watered daily for two weeks, by which time it will be rooted and ready to walk on.

You may be able to re-pot some plants to bring indoors for the winter. Find out which plants will be able to thrive despite the transplanting and different indoor conditions. Be careful not to damage the root system as you dig up the plant, and place it in a pot.

Make sure your soil is healthy enough before you start planting anything. Have a soil report done. It is cost effective and you can make necessary adjustments, based on the report, to your soil so it is correctly enriched to encourage plant growth. A Cooperative Extension office can provide you with this service, saving you learning on your own by trial and error.

When the fall season approaches, you must prepare to plant your favorite fall veggies and other edibles. This time, use a pumpkin for the container for your lettuce and kale, instead of plain clay pots. Simply cut the pumpkin open at the top, so you can remove the seeds and insides. After that, spray Wilt-Pruf along the edges and on the inside of the pumpkin, so it doesn’t rot. You can now use it to plant in, as you would a pot.

If you are considering planting a garden take the time to plan it out. This way, you will remember the places you planted your seeds when they start sprouting. You are also less likely to lose smaller members of the larger garden in the overall mix.
