The Q&A Archives: Best Way to Dig up my Grass?

Question: I want to dig up my grass and make a flower garden. What is the best way to do that without having to rent a sod cutter?

Answer: I'm afraid a shovel is the only way to remove grass from the area. You may be able to angle the shovel under the roots and roll it up in strips, the way they harvest sod. Best wishes with your project!
