I'm not sure I understand your question but I will try to answer as best I can. You can use a spading fork to loosen the soil in that garden area. Then as you loosen the soil remove the roots that come up as you use the spading fork. You may need to use a shovel to cut some of the roots. This will prepare the soil for planting. If there are leaves in the area just mix them into the soil because they will decompose into the soil and make it better for growing plants.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
