Grass Removal

Posted by chelsea87 (My Page) on

We are re-doing our backyard, but have to remove our grass. We have had some drainage problems, so we also have standing water to deal with. I am wondering if there are any tips or easier ways than to just pull up the grass? I removed some today and it took me a long time to just do this little area. Anything is helpful.

thanks a bunch :)

There is a sod remover/digger...I would imagine you could rent one or hire someone to do it for you. Call a sod farm.

Linda C's idea of the sod cutter is a good one. If you have a tool rental place nearby, they'd likely have one. Some of the home improvement places have tool rentals as well, although something like that may be a little too specialized.

Use Roundup to kill it all. Once it dies off, it will eventually decompose. You could till it under as part of the renovation.
