The Q&A Archives: Tilling a lawn

Question: I just remove 9 shrubs from my front lawn which left me with tons of roots, some are very thick. I want to till and treat the soil, sod half of the lawn and then place some plants on the other half. Should I remove the old grass (which is 80% weeds) using a shovel because the roots may damage a tiller or sod cutter? The front lawn is not big, 19' X 12' and 19' by 21' split by a walkway.
