Why book a leveling service through Airtasker?

Airtasker takes away the stress of booking yard leveling near you! Whether you want to prevent flooding, reduce drainage problems, build a retaining wall, landscape the slopes around your swimming pool, make raised garden beds, or improve your outdoor space’s overall appearance, Taskers can help with garden levelling in your area. When you use our platform, you can easily find someone offering land leveling near you.

Having an uneven lawn can make watering and fertilising plants unnecessarily difficult. The bumps can also leave distracting and unpleasant brown spots on lawns.

This can be an embarrassing experience at the very least, and at most, something that could lead to severe injuries.

You can prevent this from happening by simply putting up a task for lawn grading near you! Once it’s posted, expect offers within minutes from Taskers taking on projects for garden levelling nearby. Chances are you’ll receive plenty of them, so you can check out their profiles, ratings, and reviews to know whose service to pick.

Top Levelling related questions

The cost of garden levelling can range from $500 to $6,000. This depends on multiple factors, such as the size of your garden, accessibility, slope, soil, terrain, your location, and the materials or equipment needed for the job. A sloping garden with a steep incline might cost more due to additional labour. If this will be part of a bigger landscaping project, expect landscaping rates to fall between $500 to $20,000. Be sure to include all the details about your task so you can get the right offers for garden levelling in your area.

There’s no need for you to head to your local garden centre to provide tools for your lawn leveling service! When you book a Tasker’s service, it also comes with professional tools and equipment so they can get the job done quickly and efficiently. They have different kinds of rakes, large push brooms, shovels, edgers, soil compactor, and wheelbarrows.

You can level a lawn yourself, provided that you’re willing to spend time and energy on this tedious task. Having a professional level your lawn allows you to do more critical tasks like your work or household chores. It also ensures that it will be done correctly and efficiently the first time around, saving you from mistakes and possibly costly repairs.

Most landscaping projects need permits before proceeding, but with levelling, permits are generally not required. However, keep in mind that some methods, like excavation, can require permits. If you're levelling an area to build retaining walls over 600mm, you'll need to get planning permission from your local council. Some local authorities may also need you to let them know that you will have your lawn levelled. For good measure, approach your local authorities before booking landscape grading near you to ensure you’re following protocols.

It depends on how big your lawn is and its condition. It can only take three to four hours if your lawn is in a relatively more workable condition. Naturally, it can take longer than that if your lawn has a steep slope, high bumps, or inch-deep low spots. The type of soil also affects the amount of time to level a lawn. Discuss these details with your Tasker so they can give you a more accurate timeframe.

What do levelling services include?

Yard levelling involves creating a smooth surface on your piece of land. It almost means the same as grading services, which refers to the sloping of a yard away from the foundation of a home. Both are important when you want to have a beautifully maintained lawn, and avoid soil erosion and other drainage problems in your garden space! 

There are different methods to level or grade your yard depending on its natural grading, soil makeup, vegetation, and general needs. Here are the most common ways that you can expect from yard levelling and grading services near you:

Soil mixture installation

For this method, you may need to have your grass mowed first and detach your lawn as needed. When it’s ready, your Tasker can dig up the grass in the sunken area of the lawn. They can mix topsoil, sand, and compost and then use this soil mixture to fill the sunken areas and holes. Once done with filling out the holes and divots, your Tasker can cover your entire lawn with about 1/4 to 1/2 inches of the mix to even out the land. Keeping this layer thin is important because putting too much can choke your grass. Then, you can run your sprinklers and water your lawn to help the soil mixture settle in, filling air pockets and revitalising your property. Taskers can use a soil compactor and make sure the underlying remains compact and keep your new lawn flat. 

Taskers can also offer sod installation to stimulate regrowth and make your lawn or yard look pristine again. You can use regular grass seed or topsoil for the aftercare, but it's better to ask if laying sods can be done, as well.

Bobcat machinery

When your Tasker uses a versatile piece of machinery like Bobcat for a garden levelling project, it allows them to scoop and move dirt easily. If you book yard grading near you, you may be required to put up barriers around the perimeter of your operation. When your space is ready, your Tasker can start using the Bobcat to shave off parts of your unlevel yard, starting at an area that is as level as possible. As your Tasker levels your yard, they can create benchmarks and check out its grading. If needed, they can adjust low spots with low soil, while the excess soil will be sent to the spoils pile. The Bobcat can still be used to tamp down the ground. Once done, your Tasker can call a dump truck to have the excess dirt removed. 


Booking yard grading services near you may not just involve filling holes into level the land, especially if you’re planning to build a structure on it. Your Tasker can first clear out vegetation and tree roots. Then, they can start digging holes to create low-lying areas using a bulldozer or backhoe to be involved. The dirt removed while your Tasker is digging can be used to back-fill around the new structure. Afterwards, the richer topsoil that was also removed can be used to overlay the fill dirt, so that grass and shrubbery can grow well on your newly-graded yard. Take advantage of this method to remove unwanted or contaminated soil if needed.
