What type of tiller should I rent for installation of sod ??? I just recently removed 4,000 sq feet of old sod that was full of weeds and junk. The site has about 1-2" of good topsoil already and before I was going to level and grade the area, I'd like to rent a a tiller and till the entire area up good and then use a metal rake to level and grade the area, then install new sod.. I was wondering what type of tiller should I get? roto tiller, rearhind? no idea!
