Hello,
I'm needing ideas or thought's for what to do with my land. It has always just been a row crop field full of sand spurs, other unknown weeds and row hills. Now we're planning on building a house and I want to get to the landscaping. I plan on burning it off this winter then harrowing maybe a couple times thru the rest of the year til June. Will this idea work to KILL the SAND SPURS?

I'm not sure what sand spurs are but what you suggest is a good start. I would spread a good winter cover grass such as winter rye mixed with other perenial grass seed as well as fertilizer and perhaps lime if needed and disk up the soil to a fine dusty texture.

Top is off by spreading straw over everything to help retain moisture and stablilize the soil. If the sand spurs or other unwanted vegetation come up afterwards; you will have to spot spray or perhaps treat the entire area with some type of grass friendly herbicide if required by a large outbreak. You may have to resort to glyphosphate to kill the sand spurs.
