Don’t allow the sod to dry out… It must be kept wet and damp at all times.
Traffic on the sod must be limited. Do not walk on it unless absolutely necessary. Keep pets and any machinery off the sod for the first 3 weeks.
Check for any signs of disease, such as fungus, within 3 days of the sod installation. This is more likely to occur when the temperature and humidity levels are high.
