Gianni, all I can say about this is why lift the sod? seems to me the point 
is to kill the sod, which can be done with dark breatheable mulch, whether 
its landscape cloth covered with rocks or chips, used carpet, or the 
commercial tree mulch with tiny water holes. I take my weed whip and cut 
right down to dirt, then lay my ground cover, and have had good success in a 
month or two. Mn. Del
