Can you use a Sod-Cutter on dead grass/dirt?
So I killed off a big patch (700 sqft) of poa trivialis about 5 or 6 weeks ago with roundup.
I delayed getting new sod and now the grass has decompossed into a thin layer of dead grass with a lot of dirt showing.
I know I shouldn't till, but I need to prep the area for sod and get it down 3/4" so that the sod lays level with the surrounding lawn.
Can I use a sod cutter when the grass has been dead so long?
I dug into the dirt and their appears to be a little bit of roots left. Soil is clayish.
So if I use a sod cutter, will it just make a mess, or will it cut a layer of dirt (with a little dead grass in it) that is relatively easy to roll and remove?
What should I do?
