We have a paddock out the back, but no animals to eat it, and therefore it has gone to pot a bit - covered in docks, nettles, cow parsley etc. My husband, some years ago, hired a mini digger to scoop off the top layer of part of it, which we then raked and re-seeded to form a sort of pitch of better quality grass which we now mow and keep in order. Since then, access difficulties mean we can't get a digger in, but I am keen to repell the army of weeds and extend the 'tame' area. I am wondering if a rotavator would do the job - the problem is that the ground is full of bits of sandstone, about the size of the human fist, which I keep pulling out and disposing of. Would they keep snaring the rotavator up, or would a heavy duty one be able to cope with them. I have never used a rotavator before and don't want to hire one only to find it can't cope. Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom.
Rotavator to tame paddock? Will it work?Jump to latest post
