raised beds

when using raised beds, that are 7" deep, do I need to take up the sod, and work up the soil?

Hi, At that depth you are probably fine, but I'd still think about doing it anyway to be sure and to create a deep bed of soil for your plants to grow through. Otherwise, they'll have to grow through the sod layer as it decomposes. Not a big problem, but I'd do it anyway.
