    No problemman, sorry I didn't answer your other questions sooner.

    If you spray roundup and kill all the grass (wait till its dead) you can use a thatcher if you need to to get the rest of it up if your not going to till it all over.

    A sod cutter is basically a "knife" that gets under the roots and cuts length of "sod" off of a lawned area.

    A tiller has tines that break up the soil and loosen it up and turn it over.

    Hope this helps!
