So after doing removal of all the stumps, I had quite the mess that I had to deal with. So I borrowed a tiller and got after it. The tiller did a pretty good job of dragging roots and other trash to the surface.
On the left side of the house, you can see what everything looked like when John got finished running the backhoe through the yard.
This is after I’ve run the tiller through the yard for more than two hours and come back over it with a garden rake.
I think I’m making pretty good progress with the yard. I need to seed it now. Then start making plans for a flower bed.
