Sodding Backyard

I've got about 2500 sqft of backyard. I was going to pay a guy to do it but since he f'd up my fence, I'm going to to do it myself.

He didn't cut up the existing grass/weeds he just tilled it. If I level the land and lay from this point will the sod still have a good chance of competing with any weeds seeds that exist in the tilled dirt?

Re: Sodding Backyard

I would rake up the clumps of grass/weeds from the tilling and remove them.

I would then till a good bit of compost/dressing, level out the yard and point grade away from the home, and then lay sod.
