The Q&A Archives: Backyard

Question: I need to level my backyard and would like to know how I can do it my self. What's the best way to do it and what tools will I need.

Thank you,


Answer: Marisol,

If the yard is not too unlevel you can use a wheel barrow and shovel to haul soil to the low spots. Then take a soil rake (garden rake) and turn the tines up and use it like a shuffleboard stick pushing back and forth to spread and level the areas. It a great deal more soil will be needed you would need to rent some equipment like a bobcat to spread the soil.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
