I think I am doing something wrong...

17 years ago

I went ahead and purchased the Mantis tiller. It was a life saver turning over my clay soil and digging holes so I could plant. Then I changed the blade so I could edge the islands. The machine created the slice however it did not cut any of the grass that was in that same area...which I found odd since the grass is so much lighter and the machine had to pass the grass to get to the dirt. I went forward with the machine and backward... it did not make a difference. I will need to come back with the weed wacker to get rid of the grass. I was looking for that clean, sharp cut similar to the way it looks if I hire a landscaping company to come out and cut it. Is this unrealistic expectation? Am I doing something wrong?
