Whether you want to prevent flooding, reduce drainage issues, build a retaining wall, or improve your outdoor space’s overall appearance, Taskers can help you.

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

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 and lawn leveling in your area! 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. Some Taskers can offer other services, such as land surveying.

Top Leveling related questions

The cost of yard or lawn leveling can range from $950 to $2,000. The total cost depends on different factors, such as the size of your yard or lawn, slope, and the experience of the Tasker. For yard grading, expect the costs to be around $2,500. If both lawn grading and leveling are part of your landscaping project, expect landscaping costs to be around $300 to $16,000. Be sure to specify the tasks (lawn leveling, yard grading, garden design, etc.) to get the best quotes and hire the right lawn leveling pro in your area.

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 for lawn leveling and lawn grading services.

You can level a lawn yourself, provided that you’re willing to spend time and energy on this tedious DIY project. Having a professional lawn leveling service 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 damage or repairs.

Most landscaping projects need permits before proceeding. Lawn leveling and yard grading may require special permits to make sure you don't damage underground wires or pipes. 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 a lawn leveling or yard grading near you to ensure you’re following protocols.

It greatly 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, inch-deep low spots, or obstacles that require additional work. 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 for your grading and leveling services.

What do leveling services include?

Yard leveling involves creating a smooth surface on your piece of land. It almost means the same as yard 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 or start on a bigger landscaping project! 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 leveling and yard 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.

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, 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 and lawn leveling services near you may not just involve filling holes to 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.
