Here are some pictures of a home made spring tooth drag I bought several years ago but used for the first time this year. It is 5 feet wide and looks to be made from an old rake or hay pickup attachment. The pipe bars have double tine spring teeth bolted to them and the frame is made to fit a cat. 0 three point hitch. It did a good job leveling the garden after I got done discing it.

that's great! I have one of those agri-fab spring de-thatchers that i'm going to use to level my garden, but that looks way better!

Thanks for the comments! I did take some video of the drag and my double disc in action but something is messed up on my computer or internet connection and it is so slow it takes several minutes to load just pictures and videos aren't loading at all. The garden I plowed up was sod which I plowed early and have run the disc through it once a week for 3 weeks and then ran over the garden with this spring tooth. It made a pretty smooth garden out of it. I got most of the garden planted a week ago and we have had over 3 inches of rain since then. I will not have to worry about watering the garden for a while!

That looks like a great idea. A narrow version would work well for weeding too, I bet.
