    IL, just ignore the unbelievers, you do need a tractor!!! Of course, there will be extra maintenance in gas, oil changes, etc but you have an on-deck partner to handle those details. Go for it! Now is the time to do it as the prices have come down as the economy tries to recover.
    As Cicero said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”

    Yes, you need a tractor and the handy dandy pull behind cart! We use the cart for many things but the best is when we get bags of compost/mulch/stone- goes in the truck, use a ramp to tumble it into the red cart and drive to the flower bed, tumble it into the bed, then I can go around and cut the bags and spread them. Saves aches, pains and falling. We're 71 and used to lift them and put them in the wheelbarrow. No more!!My husband can mow our 3/4 to 1 acre yard in under 3 hours. I LOVE John Deere! And the husband!

    Here’s an update to soil amendment with Turface:

    So worth all that effort! The beds are easy to weed with this aerated soil, and weeds just pop right out. There was no squishy sinking ankle deep into the clay soil with this amendment. The plants are of course very happy because they respond to better quality soil even though iris plants will grow anywhere.
