Practical Garden Sod Cutter
Sod cutters are popular garden tools, that are used nowadays, to clear a garden of weeds and unwanted vegetation. This is a short manual explaining its use. A garden sod cutter works by inserting a blade into and under the grass and cutting horizontally to remove the grass in strips. Garden sod cutters are available to hire at local tool-and-machinery rental stores. Sod cutters are available in manual or gas-powered models. Manual sod cutters are operated by pushing a horizontal crossbar with your foot to force the cutting blade into the ground. Once the blade cuts through the soil, tip the cutter forward to level it, and push or kick it forward. Manual sod cutters may get stuck as you cut if the oil is rocky or uneven, so they’re not usually a fast way to cut sod. Gas-powered sod cutters, on the other hand, are powered by an engine, so they don’t require as much effort to use.
The engine powers the roller that makes the sod cutter move and also powers a cutting blade, moving it back and forth to slice through the grass, so all you have to do is push it along. If you are creating your new garden, in a place which has been neglected for long, then you will have an army of weeds to take care of. This is an ideal job for a sod cutter. Rather, in such a situation, using it is inevitable. They can also be used to totally clear a path for a sidewalk, that you want to create in a garden. It is an ideal tool for edging a lawn and giving it a nice and sophisticated look.
