New sod and raccoon damage
I laid sod about three weeks ago and it was looking good for two weeksÂand then the raccoons came. I tried several different products to scare them off (granular stuff, scarecrow sprinklers, etcÂ) and nothing worked. So I am having someone remove them (humanely) on Monday.
Anyway, they did a fair amount of damage in that week. They rolled up several pieces of sod, dug little holes (luckily they hit the netting in the sod or they would be bigger) and dug at a good majority of the edges. Needless to say, the lawn isnÂt as level as it was when it was first laid.
Now, in the areas that they really tore up, should I look at pulling up the sod, leveling the ground and then laying the sod back down? Every morning for the past week, I have just been pushing edges down with my foot, rolling sod back out after they roll it up and putting the little "plugs" of grass they have ripped up back in the holes.
Any thoughts? IÂm hoping they havenÂt ruined my new sod job.
