I started doing commercial work with my 1026r last year and when I'm finished digging (usually ditches or re-grading for better drainage) I always use a small tiller mounted on my gravely walk behind to smooth out the area then I plant grass seed and straw it. I'm sure there is a better way, especially when the ground is still wet! Most of our soil around here is clay and if I don't till it first, my bucket / blade can never get it smooth enough because it all sticks together in big clods. Does anyone have advice for a better way?

Thanks!
