Creating a Berm With Poor Sod Below

sally added on September 29, 2011 | Answered

Must I remove really poor growing sod before building a berm on top to max 14" height? Plastic will be placed on top of sod except where I'd plant small shrubs on the berm----okay to leave the sod? Tall evergreens shade the area for 3/4 of the day.

Yes, it is ok to leave the sod. It will die off and not cause any problems.
