    Garden Tillers for Beginners

    If gardening is relatively new to you, or you have limited time to put into it, then you might be wondering which tools can save you the most time and help you tackle toughest jobs.

    The garden tiller (or roto-tiller) is one tool that does exactly that. Preparing the soil for any plant is the toughest part of getting them to grow and is also the most important. By setting the stage for your plants growth you are vastly increasing their chances to be healthy.

    A tiller makes it easy to carve away large areas for growth by loosening the soil with powered blades designed to turn over dirt quickly.

    Garden Tilling Quick Guide

    Do a thourough walk through of the area you are going to be preparing.

    - Remove weeds before you begin as you can spread their roots and seeds throughout your soil causing problems with weeds later down the road.

    - Keep an eye out for large rocks or clumps of dirt and either remove them or break them up with a shovel.

    - Prepare to begin by filling your garden tiller with gas, checking the oil level, and putting on a pair of safety glasses and workwear to protect yourself from flying dirt and debri.

    - Start on one side of your garden and work in a grid pattern back and forth to evenly cover the area of your garden. If there are other plants nearby keep at least 2 feet away from them to avoide root damage.

    - Once the soil is loose enough to mix with any fertilizer or organic materials you intend to use, you can then mix the soil evenly with tiller.

    - Using a rake or hoe you can then level your planting area.
