You will need to properly lay sod. Be sure to get your soil prepared before you start laying the new sod. Thoroughly weed the soil, and work it into a fine, smooth tilth. Gently compact the soil until it is flattened. You then will want to thoroughly wet the soil. Lay the sod down in alternated rows, keeping the joints set off from one another. Press the sod down firmly so that the surface is flat and even. If there are gaps remaining, fill them with a bit of soil. Once it is in place, the sod requires frequent watering for at least two weeks. This is usually the amount of time it takes for the sod to grow roots, making it ready to grow seamlessly into place.
Always allow your plants to adapt gradually to any changes in light conditions, temperatures or soils, if you do not, you might shock them and cause them to die.

After a few more days, your plants will be more resistant and ready to stay outside all the time.

Some climbers that have proven to be reliable are honeysuckle, jasmine, wisteria, clematis, and climbing roses.
For a garden that thrives, choose the right type of soil. Fertilizer can enrich the soil to make it more viable. You can also make an artificial area with one variety of soil.
