Re: bermudagrass wars

Sounds like back-braking labor.  Wwhen I make a new bed or amend an empty one, 
I do a rough turnover of the soil with my shovel, then till with my Mantis.  
Then I incorporate the amendments and till them in.  I don't think I could 
evenly incorporate the amendments without my Mantis. In some instances double 
digging is necessary.  I hope it does cool down for you.  I wouldn't tackle 
such heavy work in your heat.
