I have a decent size patch of grass that I'd like to turn into a garden.
What are the steps?
Do I need to remove the grass?
Planning on renting a roto tiller and tilling rows. What should I add to the soil to make good things happen?
I'm a gardening newbie.
I would start with a sod cutter and cut away the grass!
Then till the soil!
Soil testers can be bought from most any store that sells garden plants!
Then add needed Amendment! Compost is good..
Build up the soil into rows and buy a hoe and plan to spend time weeding.. Add weed cloth as needed.
Over the rows for peppers put black plastic, it keeps the ground warmer and earlier..
Enjoy the veggies after all the work..
