Double Digging

There was a lot of hard work to be done at my plot as the majority of the space was covered in grass and the large maple tree on the south end of the yard had its roots reaching far towards the house. What we ended up doing on the south end of the lawn was double digging:
1). We cut off the top layer of sod
2). Dig down about 2 feet
3). Pull out all the tree roots
4). Lay down sod, grass down
5). Add some compost, coffee grinds, and banana peels with the soil we dug up
Hard work but lovely with friends, snacks, and tea.
