    The sod pieces could only have come apart if someone, or something was walking on it, which you know you should not do for at least 2 weeks after it is laid.

    Lord help you if you have children, an animal or both, because this grass is doomed just like the old grass.

    Wait until it has "set" and then fill in the cracks with a mixture of peat moss, black dirt, fertilizer and grass seed. (Mix it in a bucket) The grass will sprout in 7 - 10 days and fill in the cracks.

    You can add sand if the gaps are not over 2 inches. The sand will cause the grass to start growing toward the gaps and filling in. If the gaps are larger, plant the same type of grass seeds that your turf is in the gaps. That should cause the spaces to fill in with new grass.

    Put some garden mix into the cracks and sprinkle some seed. The cracks will fill in as the grass starts growing this spring.
