Laying sod over existing grass


Gents,

I was curious if I can lay small amounts of sod over existing grass. What do you think?

Or would it be better to bring in small amounts of dirt and place them over existing sod and then place the new sod down?

The right way would be to cut out the old sod, level the area, wet it down, and install the new sod so it ends up at the same level.
