It is almost springtime here in Idaho, and people are really excited to get out and start gardening. Even though real spring weather is still a month away, we have had a few days where the weather has been sunny and warm enough to play outside.
The last two weeks of February, and the first two weeks of March, are probably the best time to get a Rototiller rental. This is because the ground is no longer frozen, and is likely to remain unfrozen until you’re ready to harvest. Plus if you use a Rototiller right now, you can help your garden get established over the course of the next few weeks. Sometimes it is a good idea Tuccillo soil amendments, or organic matter, such as gardening compost into the soil. This will help you to get very fertile soil that is great for planting in.
Even though you can have a rototiller by buying one, most of the time it is well worth it to get Rototiller rentals, because they will allow you to do so much more work in so much less time. If you have more than 700 ft.² of garden to take care of, I would recommend that you use a Rototiller rental because it will make the job easier and faster also. Get a larger Rototiller if you have a large garden area or if you want to be able to till deeper into the soil. If you want to save money or have a smaller garden, then you should get a smaller Rototiller.
When you use a Rototiller for your garden, it is a good idea to go over the entire garden area at least three times. Make sure to remove large rocks or other unwanted material from your garden so that your garden will be able to grow well and produce a lot of fruits.
