But actually, I'm hoping to accomplish a major task on my day off
Yeah. I know. And no, I've never done it before. Aside from internet research, I know nothing. I don't even have a firsthand account from someone who has done this before. BUT, I'm confident. I think it will be fine, and it will be a good example of how some sweat equity can really save you $$$ in the end. It's been super rainy all week, which I'm hoping will make the tilling process quite a bit easier (and muddier) than if the ground were more dry. (And in case you're going to suggest it, Home Depot doesn't have a tool to rent that can do what we need it to do. The only machine they have that has a control for settings [since we don't need the ground super ripped up] is huge and requires a truck to move. No dice.)
So stay tuned! I'm hoping it will be a good upper body workout. And I think if I wear headphones and rock out, it might be a little more fun. Send your nice lawn vibes my way!
Happy Good Friday!
