The Q&A Archives: Reseeding over sunken ground

Question: I had two large dead oak
trees removed from my yard and planted grass
there. Over the years the
ground has settled and has become dangerous. Can I fill the area with
dirt over the grass and
plant grass seed over that?

Answer: If the sunken areas are dangerously low, I would definitely fill the areas with topsoil and reseed. Once the lawn is level, walking and mowing will be much easier!
