How do i pack soil before laying sod?
You want to roll soil with a weighted roller. You should be able to walk on the surface without making deep impressions with your foot. Remember the turf will also provide some stabilization so you’re not looking to make the soil so compact that you leave no imprint. The soil needs to be compact enough to support the weight and traffic of the intended use and not sink during natural settling. It’s an art and it’s called horticulture.
