Is a sod cutter easy to use?

As more and more homeowners opt for patios and outdoor living spaces (at the expense of lawns), sod cutters are a relatively quick and easy way to remove unwanted grass and properly prepare the construction area.

Is it better to use a sod cutter or tiller?

The biggest difference between sod cutters and tillers is what they do with the grass. While sod cutters create easily removed strips, tillers rip the turf and churn it into the soil.

Use the spade or edge, or a sod cutter hand tool, to cut the sod strips the same way you cut the outer edges of the area.

How deep does a sod remover go?

These cuts should be about four inches deep and about the width of the shovel apart. Once the sod is cut in strips, you can start at one end of the strip and slide the flat shovel under the sod, cutting the roots. This method works best for small lawns. A motorized sod cutter is recommended for larger lawns.
