Planting trees/bush's


We put 8 arborvitae's in along the fence line last year. We want to finish putting the rest in down the fence line. What's the best way to remove the existing grass/sod. We need to remove about 4 feet wide and 25 feet long, I'm not sure how my husband did it last year but he said it was a pain in the butt...is there an easy way to remove it?

Check your rental center for a sod cutter. These are specialized machines that scalp off the sod, and will do your job in no time. Really is a lot easier than roto tilling.
