My back yard is approx. 1/4 acre of trees and low broadleafed
vegetation (no grass). The trees are oak, sweet gum, and pine.
The vegetation provides a haven for chipmunks, rabbits,
snakes, mice, etc.
I would like to clear most of it and plant grass (or place
sod) in a small sunlit area close to the back of the house.
I would like to have the rest be pine straw or mulch.
(But there will be a lot of leaves and gumballs in the fall...)
What is the best way to clear all that vegetation?
At my old house I used a rototiller and weedkiller
to clear some small plots which I covered with
pinestraw and surrounded with RR ties. The area
in my current back yard is much bigger. Is there
a better way than rototiller and weed killer?
Thanks. Please reply to the group, or e-mail
