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 issues, or improve your outdoor space’s overall appearance, Taskers can help you out. When you use our platform, you can easily find someone offering land leveling near you.

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 from Taskers nearby within minutes. 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

It greatly depends on how big your lawn is and its condition. It can only take three to four hours if your lawn has 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.

There’s no need for you 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, 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 leveling, permits are generally not required. However, keep in mind that some methods, like excavation, can require permits. Some local authorities may also need you to let them know that you will have your lawn leveled. For good measure, approach your local authorities before booking landscape grading near you to ensure you’re following protocols.

What do leveling services include?

Yard leveling involves creating a smooth surface in 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! 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 leveling 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 revitalizing your property.

Bobcat machinery

When your Tasker uses a versatile piece of machinery like Bobcat, 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. 

Excavation

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.

Cleaning of a one-level Townhouse (90 m2)

$150

West Footscray VIC, Australia

29th Aug 2022

Good Afternoon, My partner and I decided very spontaneously to arrange an additional clean up of our townhouse (90 m2) for this week. We clean regularly but we like to also add a professional cleaning roughly once a month for some additional tasks. The house is in good condition as we clean regularly every weekend, but we would like to engage a professional cleaner to perform the following activities: vacuuming (also small and corridor rugs) and mopping (the house is only tiles and no carpet), window cleaning, screen doors cleaning, kitchen, bathroom (including shower) and toilet (1), and bedrooms (2). No inside of shelves is required, but we would like the outside of the cabinets and the bookshelf to be cleaned as well. Additional notes: We do not require any courtyard cleaning. We have induction stoves, so no crazy cleaning is required. Oven needs only minor clean up (no trays). We do not expect the job to take more than 3/3.5 hours in a very detailed way. Any extra on top of this allocated time will be paid separately. We would also like you to bring your products and your vacuum cleaner (we do have one but it is electric and might not last). House is located in West Footscray, Hansen Reserve side. We need this done by Friday 2nd September (included). We are flexible with time but preferable morning. Thanks and looking forward to your response - Due date: Before Friday, 2 September 2022

Very nice and polite guy. Probably some misunderstanding on the expected level of cleaning, but he has anyway performed the tasks in the agreed timeline.
