Removes layers of built-up mulch to enhance aeration and composting. Cultivates dead spots in turf, while preparing ground for sod or seeding within secs. Improves survivability of young plants by allowing water to penetrate crusty thatch of compressed mulch. Also disrupts weeds from taking root. To enhance weed control, apply pre-emergent herbicide in between fluffing old mulch and spreading new mulch. Options include short extensions for tilling 10-in.-wide paths in flower beds and other tight areas, as well as long extensions for tilling 26-in.-wide paths in parks and other large, open areas.
