Hello all!


I have a 5,000 sq foot yard that wraps around my house. A lot of it is dirt and there are intermittent foxtails and other types of weeds. The foxtails are my main concern for my dogs.

I want to strip this whole area down to dirt for now.

Is there any good way to do this? I am currently using a rake and a shovel in tandem and it works but progress is slow. I feel like there has to be a better way.

Thank you!

Fastest way is Groundclear but then you have to keep the dogs out for a certain amount of time.

My property also has a half acre of wooded area and tall foxtails. I want to turn this whole half acre into trees and dirt. Can someone help me with how the heck I can do that? The foxtails and weeds are dead I just need to start scraping over a large area

Update for the smaller area I talked about. I used a hula how and now that 5,000 sq ft area is all nice clean dirt. I really need help with the large half acre wooded area
