New Bed From Lawn – What About the GRASS?
Can I cut the grass short and till the leftover grass into the area I'm turning into a bed? Then plant my bushes (lilacs and forsythia) and then put mulch over the whole bed? The info I read says options are: to cut the grass/sod out; smother it, poison it, but not what to do after it is smothered. Thank you.

Yes, you can till it under then plant or you can just simply plant and mulch heavily. Both will work.
