Make sure it is mowed low. Then use a roto-tiller and go over it twice. Then use the harley-rake and go over it and smooth it out. That's how we do it.

If your installing new, I would spray the entire yard first with roundup. This way you won't have too much old grass come back in.

Are you planning on seeding or sodding the new lawn.???
