We, sometimes, see a lot of professional people using mechanical tools. A turf cutting machine is used to take out vegetation and a rotavator to turn over the soil. If you don’t turf the lawn often, then it is not advised to buy it. Well, many stores can rent you such tools, or you can borrow them from someone who is very frequent in turfing a lawn.
The rotovator is mostly used in the vegetable garden. For a lot of people, it was considered an excellent investment. It is not necessary to buy one if you don’t require one. Allotmneteers might lend you one, or you can just rent it from a store.
