This handy dandy item is used for removing grass. It has a sharp blade that goes under the sod and cuts the roots allowing the grass to be lifted in large strips. We have used it all over the SJC property making the job much easier than using a shovel. I have used the 'compost' method of covering the grass with newspaper and mulch for smaller sections, but that is not very practical for large areas. The grass strips are then composted and in the case of the Buddha Garden, they will be used to build up one side of the yard to lesson the slope. I love a good tool!
