Ths sod was removed from around the Rose of Sharon bushes. The purpose is to improve the growing environment for the Rose of Sharon roots by removing the grass competition.

First the sod was cut using the kick type sod cutter. The sod was hand pulled apart and put through the chipper\shredder, and blown back onto the area from which it was removed. From past experience it was found that the grass roots are effectively destroyed, and no grass grows from the residue. The area was edged, lightly rototilled, raked smooth and covered with wood chip mulch.
