I dug holes to plant roses and berries around the fence. I did a few things out of order. The weeds were growing so fast it was hard to keep up with it! I rented a roto tiller and brought it back to get the ground ready and leveled out but the ground was solid as a rock and the tiller went right over it doing nothing:( So I went back to the store and traded it for a huge, strong rotto tiller. Almost killed myself trying to get it out of the truck and over to the garden. It threw me around a bit tilling the ground but many hours and bruises later, it did it, the ground was pretty level and ready to be covered!!
