No, have to dig out the old dead sod which becomes a thatch in July heat. Then prep the soil raking with metal rake prior to rolling new sod.
Yes, only 1 year did it keep growing but mostly we get July heatwave that kills everything Lol. It's all good, kinda used to it, keeps me in shape!
Maybe I missed something but wouldn't it be easier to run a sprinkler to keep it alive instead of resodding every year?
