I’m figuring out how to completely strip and replace my garden.
Do I need to hire a turf cutter, or can I can use weed killer to kill the lawn then rotovate it into the earth once dead?
Is one (a lot) better than the other?

The most straightforward option is to spray the turf with glyphosate (Roundup, for example), wait seven days (assuming average temperatures) and then rotavate. If it's a large lawn, use a knapsack sprayer and also canes to mark out metre wide strips so you can spray methodically. Be aware that glyphosate is not a selective herbicide so avoid drift onto other plants. Chose a calm day and follow all manufacturer's instructions.
