I have a problem and I need some advice. I have a small back
yard that is quite shady that back to woods. We have a small lawn
and 2 large trees surrounded by a weeded dirt area that needs
to be cleaned of all roots and weeds before I can plant there.
What is the best way to clean up that area for planting?
Do I need one of those small earth movers or can I do
this by hand? I would really like to fix this up to look nice
but I definitely need some advice.
A small 4-tine hand cultivator, or maybe a spading fork, should do the
job nicely if you don't mind a little manual labor. The cultivator
will work if the soil isn't too hard, the spading fork is a much
sturdier tool that can dig into something that's been compacted into a
good substitute for concrete.
