How do you till garden rows with a tiller?
How to Till a Garden
- Mark out the area where you will be tilling your soil.
- Start at one end of the marked out area with your tiller. Much like you would when you are mowing the lawn, go across the soil one row at a time.
- Slowly make your rows.
- You will only be tilling the dirt in each row one time.
Should you plow before tilling?
As a rule of thumb, till during the spring and plow during the fall. This ensures that your soil is easier to maintain and will prevent your plants from drying up and losing its nutrients.
What is the difference between tilling and plowing?
Plowing is the more intense version of tilling. Instead of scraping the topsoil for a casual sift through, plowing is the forceful overturning and mashing of the soil to reveal the soil underneath the topsoil. In the modern times, both tilling and plowing can be done with farm implements such as a disk harrow.
Should you till between garden rows?
When cultivating, care must be taken to not disturb plant roots, which will cause damage to your plants. Cultivating between the rows and not getting too close to your plants will prevent damaging roots and the plants attached to them.
