To level a yard, cut and fold back the grass with a half-moon edger and spade, and then remove stray objects with a rake. Pour soil into the hole, and then return the flaps back to their original position. Along with gardening tools, you need soil and lawn seed.Continue Reading
Locate a bump or other imperfection in the yard, and cut perpendicular lines over the area with a half-moon edger so the bump is at the center of where the lines cross.
Coax a spade 2 inches underneath one of four sections that the crossed lines created.
Repeat with the remaining three sections, and then fold the sections back gently.
Remove pieces of rock and dirt with a gardening fork.
Pour soil into the hollow that the flaps created until the surface is level.
Fold the flaps back over, and use the back of the rake to tamper them.
Pour lawn seed into the cracks that the original cuts made.
Repeat the process with any additional uneven areas in the yard, and then water the entire lawn.
