This is Mindy McIntosh-Shetter, and I'm gonna show you how to remove grass to prepare to plant a vegetable garden. Now what you're gonna need for this project is just a simple shovel. Now I'm gonna give you a tip when doing this. You want to make sure that you dig below the root level of the grass. And that way you're guaranteed that that grass won't come back. Also, once you have your garden space dug, make sure that you rake out any remaining grass or roots that may remain. You're just gonna put your shovel down here. Make sure that the edge of your shovel is sharp, and you're gonna push down. And you're gonna lift up, and lifting up is a great way to guarantee to make sure that you get that root mass. And continue with this process until that section of the grass has been removed. And that's all there is to removing grass in preparation for a vegetable garden.
