I am starting from scratch with a green field site. Should I spray the area i want to plant out before rotavating?

Yes, spray with Roundup carefully and thoroughly. Run the rotavator over the ground very shallowly first to break up the sod and then go deeper to mix it in.

You can rotavate a couple of days after spraying and the grass will still die although it will look green for a while. 

You could have used black plastic or old carpet to kill the grass but that should have been done months ago.
