Depending on your soil type, you may need to mix organic matter into the ground so that your new turf grass can thrive. In many cases, a mixture of a good quality compost and topsoil can help loosen clay soil, encourage deep root growth, and keep moisture in the ground. Break up the soil in the area where you will be laying sod, and then incorporate your topsoil and compost. After smoothing the soil and letting it settle, it will be ready for sod installation.
