Benefits of Tilling Soil with a Garden Tiller

A garden tiller is an understated piece of landscaping equipment. Tilling soil in flower beds, plant beds, and lawns is beneficial for healthy plant growth. Soil becomes compacted and depleted of vital nutrients over time which affects its drainage and oxygen levels. Tilling helps to give life back to compacted, nutrient-depleted soil by aerating it. Aerating soil helps to increase decomposition of organic matter and tilling is an efficient way to incorporate compost and manure into soil, increasing nitrogen levels. Not to mention, tilling also helps to inhibit weed growth by disrupting weed root systems.
