I am about to lay sod for the 1st time. My yard is sandy w/ patches of weed/grass. How should I prep the ground before laying sod?

Thanks in advance.

Noticed your post and thought I might be able to help. You are probably going to have to get rid of the weeds with a tiller or something and a rake. Then I would assume you'd need to use some topsoil to cover the lawn (if it's all sandy). Then put down starter/fertilizer and lime. I've seen some people put gass seed under the sod (to fill in the seams) but it's really not needed. Don't forget the sod staples if you have any hills.
