Clearing up an overgrown farm field for sports
We are in the process of leasing a farmland here in Durham to use as a sportsfield for our team.
In the current shape the farm is overgrown, has not been farmed for a couple of years since the new owner took over.
Based on the discussion and a quick walkthrough the ground seems to be level however we are wondering whats the cost effective way of getting this cleaned up, and get grass to grow.
The field is about 8 acres.
Would appreciate any guidance on the process to follow, also can we DIY the owner is willing to lend us a tractor.
If not what should we contract for (Grading, clearing, tilling?)
