A pretty good summary of the reasons I've not used a rotavator.

By digging I've found a layer of clay I would otherwise have missed. I've punched holes through it and filled them with gravel to improve drainage. I've seen a huge number of worms too - there would have been carnage using a rotavator in there.

A few people have suggested running a rotavator over the lot but on balance I thought the extra time and back-breaking work of digging the whole lot seemed better in just about every way... including the good workout it's providing!


What I'd give to use a rotavator on my plot at the moment. It's hard work digging, but I'm determined to get all those perennial weeds out without having them increased by using a rotavator.
