    Lawn renovation

    I recently got my 1025tlb....before I bought it I started a lawn reno in a small area about 2500 square feet. I rented a sod cutter and was loading it in a wheel barrel....after about 40 wheel barrels I was hurtin lol. I did finish it up with the 1025 and spread the 6 yards of top soil.
    I plan to do a much bigger lawn reno in the fall(Prolly around 10000 sf). What are the best implements to handle this. I do have real easy soil...kinda sandy. I want to get rid of the old weeds spread top soil grade and seed. I was thinking a tiller might work good to grind up all the soil then I can spread top soil. I was using the bucket to grade and it worked ok but it's not the best thing. Any help would be appreciated.
    This is probably in the wrong forum I just saw the land ownership forum. With a very similar thread.

    If the existing soil is heavily rooted, which I'm speculating it is by your reference to a sod cutter, I'd echo the tiller and the landscape rake. If you're just trying to fill in some bare areas, here is something different I'm trying:
