Sod removal from garden area
Unless you are going to build raised beds, you must completely kill all existing grass. Use an herbicide with glyphosate as the active ingredient (like Round-Up). Glyphosate does not live in the soil. You might need more than one application. Once all of the grass in your 16x16 area is dead, add 2-3 inches of composted matter into the top 6-8 inches of soil. Rake it smooth and cover it with mulch; just move the mulch aside to plant your flowers and veggies.
