Hi,

I plan to replace the established fescue lawn with zoysia grass. In order to install the new zoysia sod, I must tilt the existing fescue grass to the ground.

What is the best equipment to do it? Is there any place I can rent it?

Thanks

Not sure of the best place to rent a tiller, but I would steer clear of Home Depot. The equipment isn't maintained and doesn't always work well.

For yard projects in the past, I've rented equipment from Sunbelt. Welcome to Sunbelt Rentals - All Your Equipment Rental Needs - One Company

Wow! You are actually going to sod the yard? That's going to be mighty expensive. If you want a full zoysia yard now then sodding is the only way to do it. However, if you are on a budget and can wait a few seasons for a full zoysia yard I'd recommend just plugging it. Zoysia is a creeping grass and will overtake the fescue. It would save a lot of money by plugging.
But yes, a tiller is what you'd need. Depending on the size of your yard, I'd recommend renting a Dingo with a tiller attachment. It will get it done a lot faster and easier. You can also get the attachment for the Dingo that will rake and smooth out the yard after you till it.
