What’s the easiest way to DIY level a yard and lawn?

The easiest way to level a yard and lawn is to call experts.

If you see that you can fix it yourself, you will need some tools. With years of yard and lawn levelling experience, the experts at Amico recommend that you use the following tools and materials to handle a small DIY levelling of a yard:

  • Compost
  • Fresh soil
  • Sand and rocks
  • A rake
  • A shovel

Once you have this, here’s what needs to be done:

  1. Start by giving the lawn good water, then top-up any shallow depressions with a mixture of compost, new soil, and sand (approximately two parts sand, two parts soil and one part compost). 
  2. Apply the mixture to the lawn evenly using a rake, then compact the area using the back of your spade or your feet.
  3. Allow the newly added soil to settle over a few days and spread some grass seed and water as necessary.
    1. Note that for deeper depressions, you’ll need to dig out the top soil, any stones or large clumps and replace it all so you can then spread the seed.  

In some cases, back-yard leveling issues can be fixed in a couple of hours. Knowing that Sydney and Australia, in general, is quite hilly, we suggest that you consult for all your landscaping preparation and leveling questions with experts at Amico.
