i was in fla and was ammazed at the way they planted grass and installed sprinklers
its true they do not prep the soil. because its not soil its sand. the sod has a thicker mat than we have here.
they leval the ground with a bobcat and throw sod
the sprinkler systems blew my mind. they lay it on the ground and cover it with the in ms you would have a busted pipe in dec. but there they dont worry about it

my observations were in the mid fla area orlando,tittusville, coco beach i do not know about jacksonville or further north

No need to worry about it here either. I'm just a little north of Tampa so no worries of pipes busting
