I cut it like sod. Careful pinching can help if you keep up on it. I use a
plastic paint scraper and cut out a chunk and in a a week or two the new
growth has covered up the hole. Rotating the area you cut each time can keep
nice fresh growth going well with less work involved. Selling the sod pieces
is easier also. Folks like the look of it.
