Create New Garden Beds

Step 1:

Use a garden hose, flour, string or another nontoxic substance to mark the lines before you begin making any cuts.

Step 2:

Insert the blade of the garden spade vertically between the lawn and the edge of the garden bed.

Step 3:

Step on the foot press of the spade, and drive the blade about 3 inches into the ground.

Step 4:

Make a second cut at a 45-degree angle so that it meets the bottom of the vertical cut.

Step 5:

Lift out the sod that has been created by the two cuts, and toss it into your wheelbarrow.

Step 6:

Repeat steps 1 through 3 until the entire edge has been cut.

Step 7:

Take the resulting chunks of grass and soil from your wheelbarrow and fill in low areas of your lawn, or place it in a composter.

Step 8:

Use a round-point shovel or tiller to remove the remaining sod within the body of the bed or turn it over.
