When laying sod, it is important that you do it correctly. Before laying the sod, the soil must be prepared. Remove weeds and break your soil until all the clumps are gone. Compress the soil lightly yet firmly, and make certain it’s flat. Make sure the soil is moist all the way through. When laying down sod, create staggered rows with offset joints. You want the sod to end up as a flat and even surface. If there are any gaps in between the sod pieces, then you can fill these in with some soil. The sod needs to be watered daily for two weeks, by which time it will be rooted and ready to walk on.
Your plants need to adapt and must be gradually introduced to changes in temperature or condition. Place them outside in the sunlight for an hour or two on the first day. Over the week, try gradually increasing the time they’re left outside. By the week’s end, your plants should then be ready for the big move!

Healthier plants are stronger, which in turn can help the plants you grow to become more resistant to disease and bugs that can harm them. So if you want your garden to provide plants that are as healthy as possible, you need a good quality soil that contains few chemicals and that can accumulate salts over time.
Plants need ample amounts of CO2 to reach their maximum growth. Plants will not thrive if they don’t have an adequate amount of CO2. A greenhouse is the best way to create an environment rich in CO2. Plants grown in a greenhouse tend to be more lush and healthier due to the improved growing environment.
