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. 


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.

Dirt levelling


Reservoir VIC 3073, Australia

13th Mar 2023

I have a courtyard 8 x 6 meters in size, I need someone who can operate a small earthmoving machine / small bobcat / small digger-grader ect. to level off the dirt to 100 to 150 mm below the concrete driveway line. The level is currently quite good but there are two high spots that need about a 75 mm flattening cut and can be redistributed onto the lower troughs. There shouldn’t be any need to cart any earth away. Very straight forward and a fairly quick job. Would be better done as soon as possible because the ground is very dry and must be avoided from incoming rain, due to clay content. Accuracy with the level is key because a layer of crush rock and sand will follow with compaction. The operator MUST have a ramp to descend into the courtyard area to avoid breaking the concrete drive edging. Thanks. - Due date: Before Sunday, 19 March 2023

Ardi and his associate were punctual, polite, great listeners, competent in their advice and wonderfully experienced. Meticulous and with an eye for detail, they were able to complete the landscaping to a very professional standard. I highly recommend their services. Keep up the great work guys!
