Well, we're trying to figure something out we've not had much experience with: flattening a yard. My daughter recently purchased a home near us and she has a little over an acre. We're at sea level here, so water pretty much drains right down through the lawn in the low lying areas. Her lawn drains okay, but it's 'bumpy' or 'lumpy' or 'craggy', whatever you call it. Walking on it is an adventure. You can't see the lumps because it's nice and grassy, but the mower has a heckuva time with it, and her littlest stumbles on it. You simply cannot run on it unless you want serious problems.
It's quite spongy after a good rain, so we're thinking we could deploy something heavy, like a water-filled roller drum behind the lawn tractor (do they make such things)?
Do we have to hire a 'steam-roller' to come in and 'flatten' it?
Will we have to start from scratch and have it 'graded' out with some kind of heavy equipment? Then re-seed the whole thing? (we'd prefer to avoid that)
I've seen we have some lawn gurus and yard warriors here on the docks. Any suggestions?
