Removing tall grass with a tiller is probably one of the best ways of having the job completed. This is because a tiller can get right down into the ground and thoroughly pulverize the soil particles to make sure that your garden gets to hold on to its essential nutrients. When you cut it up in the form of lawn sod your garden is left with the good part of the grass and very little of the nutrients. Tiller work is perfect for removing tall, tough grass and for other types of jobs where you don’t want to spend hours in the garden tillers.
There are many different types of garden equipment available. You need to have the right one to suit the task at hand. In a dry climate you can get a rotary tiller. This is basically an attachment for a tractor, which you can put right onto the tractor. It works by tilting and digging deep into the soil so that the roots of the plants are firmly anchored to the underlying structure. Once this tiller has reached the desired height, it can be turned over and you can go about digging again.
If you live in a wetter climate you can use an upright tiller attachment. This works in much the same way as a rotary tiller. However the difference is that instead of digging deep into the ground, it moves the tilling disc underneath the ground to make sure that the surface of the soil is tilled and broken up. You can move it to different areas as needed and it does not require a motor so there is no electrical or manual power supply.
Other garden tiller attachments include rototiller blades. These work much like the blades on a lawnmower. The blade scrapes the earth and then spins as it drags across it. They are very effective but they do need to be turned over on a regular basis so the ground is kept firm. You can also use a digger attachment with a rotating bucket attached to it. These are very useful for breaking up soil and clay.
You also have the option of using an automated tilling machine. These tend to be quite expensive but can make sure that the tilling process goes much more quickly. They can also help you to cover larger areas than manual tilling. They can work in conjunction with your tiller and your tillers and can move materials directly to where they are needed.
When using a tiller, it is important to remember that it is the rotating blades that create the suction and that is why they have to be turned frequently. Rotating the blades forwards and backwards ensures that the suction increases and that water is removed from the ground at a steady rate. You will find that as the tiller moves further forward, the grass grows finer and as it moves away from the tiller the grass gets finer and looser. This is all caused by the blades turning as they move, which agitates the soil in front of it.
A rototiller works much like a vacuum cleaner as it removes grass and soil without the need of a hose or dirty hoses. However, instead of a dirty hose you have a rotating blade that moves a large amount of dirt an hour. This is great for creating a constant supply of organic matter in your garden as the tiller constantly moves small amounts of dirt to the areas that need it.
You will find that when you are first learning how to use a tiller you should start out small and work your way up. If you are not confident in your abilities, you may want to call in a professional to help you. Just make sure that when you are removing grass that you have prepared the area to receive the fertilizer before planting. This will ensure that the plants that you plant will be strong and healthy.
