Work­ing newly cleared soil

Winnipeg Free Press - Section F - - HOMES -

Once you have re­moved all of the grass, use a gar­den spade or fork to cul­ti­vate the newly cleared soil, turn­ing it 15 to 20 cen­time­tres deep.

As you dig, break up clumps. A fork is par­tic­u­larly use­ful on heavy clay ground that sticks to­gether as it is turned.

A gar­den rake can be used once the ground is tilled to level it and rake out roots and twigs.
