    I want to have a go at shifting this lot.Obviously a big rotovator would turn it over,but I'd rather buy than waste money on rental.My health prevents my forking it over bit by bit..I just want to turn it over and remove as many weed roots as I can.Has anyone bought one of the cheaper rotovator/tillers that would be up to the job? I was going to strim and rake it first.

    Forget the rotavator, first attack it with a scythe!:lunapic 130165696578242 5: I think it would just laugh at a strimmer. Cheers, Tony.

    I’d dig those nettles up by hand and tease out the roots with a fork, otherwise the rotavator will chop up roots and each little piece will re-grow again.

    You might be better off using Roundup if you aren't adverse to chemicals.


    What are you intending to plant once it’s cleared?
