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.

Mini Excavator - level an area and dig a trench and more


Mount Gravatt East QLD, Australia

22nd Feb 2024

Got a bit ambitious with a DIY project and now keen to finish it off with some help. Corner of the block has a small hill. Plan is to level it a little and use concrete blocks (Linearwall) to build a 2 block high garden bed. Welcome any advice, thoughts on the steps currently: 1. Use mini excavator to level the area 6x4m (roughly 150mm or so deep) 2. Use mini excavator to dig a trench for 5x3m rectangle for blocks (another 150mm deep). 3. Back fill the trench with road base (located on the driveway) 4. Compact and lay blocks 5. Place the dirt back into the garden bed Notes: - Blocks haven't been ordered yet but can be organized before you come. - Please give me a quote for the first two steps only and then for everything. I will be there to assist as well and can bring a friend. - Side of the house has a 1.8m wide access, hope that's wide enough for a mini excavator. - The summer has got this place grown back with greens

Level and turf backyard section


Woolloongabba QLD, Australia

2nd Dec 2023

We got retaining walls and fill about 1 year ago. We're now looking to level (with a slight slope) the yard to the back of the retaining wall and then turf it. To be fair, we can turf ourselves and could provide labour if someone has know how for levelling. Green photo is how it looks at the moment. Other two are before the weeds grew. Area is about 40m2 (guess). Type of gardening: Other Size of garden: Under 50m² Has green waste bin: Yes - Due date: Flexible

Jason is a hard worker and genuinely great guy. He's got amazing general knowledge and great chat, if you are thinking of pitching in and being his labour for the day. Turned up almost to the second of when he said he would.
