 landscaping

Looking to do major lawn/landscaping work on property.Just cleared about 1 acre, was thick woods!! Want to integrate new cleared area w/ existing lawn that was torn apart from logging the 1 acre. My question is, is there an attachment (scarcifier I think) that I can hook to my 3 point hitch and drag across old lawn to bust up any loose sod remaining such that I can smooth out the new lawn area and the old lawn and then plant an entirely new lawn when done? Any help is appreciated.

It's a little tricky, especially since I assume that the object is to leave the topsoil. There are implements that sod growers use, but they would be expensive. Another way would be to cut it with a disc and then turn it all under with a moldboard plow.

I have taken sod off smaller areas to be used for sizable gardens with my box scraper. I put the scarifiers down at minimum depth and cut the sod across the length and width of the plot. The scarifiers are then retracted and the squares of sod are pulled up using either or both box scrapper blades or the loader. Some care has to be taken to avoid cutting too much topsoil.

The process yields some usable chunks of sod. Other larger chunks end up in the scraper box or loader bucket and they can be moved to the side. A fair amount of the smaller chunks stay on the plot, and I tilled them into the ground. It's a walk-behind tiller, and it did take a lot of walking behind to chop up the remaining sod.

I've been converting an old field into grass and periodically expand it. Have use several tools, including plow, disk, soil pulverizer, flex harrow, and landscape rake. The best approach in my estimation is to rent a 48" or 60" 3pt/pto tiller. It chops up the sod, integrates it into the topsoil, and loosens up the soil for seeding, and can be done without digging into the subsoil. None of the other implements accomplish these.

A discussion about using tillers to cut and chew sod came up awhile back. Given my experience with a walk-behind, I had some doubts that a tiller would work very well. Agreeing with Jim, several people said their tillers worked OK even if the going was pretty slow. I suppose there might be some types of soils and turfs that could present problems.

If you are not trying to fill in large ruts. I think a flex harrow will do what you are looking for. It will scarify and break up the dirt clods. I is also useful to prepare the soil and cover the grass seeds.

I work in ladscaping currently. Most of the work we do is seeding. If the area is a field or land clearing you most certainly have to till. I have found that the best tillers for a 3PT setup are Howard's made in the UK. After the till by far the best way to prepare a seed bed is an agtec or preseeder made by New Holland. We have done on average 100 or more acres a season and have found nothing better. These implements can be costly from a home owners standpiont, but will always do the job.

Thanks guys. I had it pretty much narrowed down to having to use a tiller, you all confirmed. Can't find a rental unit around me so it looks like I'll be using my Troy-Bilt walk behind, UGG! Still have some more clearing to do first.
Again, thanks. Matt

FOr the best job I'd recommend a Harley rock rake with the double rolls. Many dealers rent these and the only problem is that you might not take as long as you wanted to.
