A lot of this depends on how large your garden is. I've done 2 different types of gardens on top of grass.

The first was in raised beds and was just put on in top of the grass. The other was directly in the ground and I dug up the grass and added some gardening soil to it.

For a larger garden you really need a rototiller, which you can normally rent from a local gardening or hardware store.
