    I have a costomer...old annoying person. She needs a portion of her yard reseeded....she accidently killed it with round up. nutso. Anyways, her ground is hard as hard comes. Now obviously i won't be able to do anything till the spring...but how would you go about breaking up this rock hard clay? Tiller? Lanscapeing rake? Mini-disk or cultivator? I have a tractor with a 3pt hitch/ rear PTO, and a local place that rents implements. Thanks a ton! Happy holidays! :)

    It would depend on the size of the area, if the area was small I would use a tiller if it is big enough to use your tractor I would rent the necessary implements

    I have often found it easier to dump some new soil and plant in that than to till and amend crap. You will get good germination with less work and cost and the grass will still push roots into the hard stuff as it matures. I wouldnt take a small tiller to that for any money.
