Need Tiller Advice Please
I'm planning to till up a large section of my yard to start a new garden. 2,000+ square feet. Plan is to till 8'x4' beds. The area is currently just grass. I've been looking around, and tillers aren't cheap. I thought about renting one, but I may need to use it over several days, at which point the rental fees would add up significantly. Also planning to only till up about a third of it now to start a small garden now, and then work on the rest in the summer to finish it out. My research so far leads me to believe that I need a rear-tine tiller.
I'd appreciate any advise you all can give me as far as if rear-tine is the way to go, what brands/models are best, or if there are any I should absolutely stay away from. Thank you!!
