Tilling is a very important process that is often misunderstood and overlooked because people simply haven’t been taught what it can do. Tilling is the process of turning soil over to draw air into it and to turn roots and plant matter in it inward, enhancing the nutrients. Soil that isn’t tilled tends to stagnate and become less useful over time. Anyone planning on doing planting has a very good reason to till soil, but what many seem to miss is that tilling isn’t just for farmers. Tilling matters for anyone with plants, and this describes anyone that has so much as a lawn.
Tilling was once a very expensive proposition from a perspective of time spent. Done by hand, tilling is exceedingly hard work if you have more than a patch of soil to attend to. However, tilling machines have only gone down in price as technology has improved. An increasingly-common trend we’re seeing is for families to purchase a Maxim tiller or other reliable brand and spread the costs over multiple members of the family. Because tilling does not need to be done often for most families, shared use is a perfectly-convenient arrangement, and this allows everyone to afford and get access to the machine.
Tilling soil can help your lawn, flowers and anything else you have occasion to plant grow bigger, greener and stronger, improving the value of your home and neighborhood. Don’t overlook the importance of tilling; it matters, and with a little ingenuity, it can be dirt cheap!
