Its about my lawn

Oxfordshire, United Kingdom Gb

Part of my lawn dips, its like a bowl, is there a way I can level it off without digging up the turf.
Thank you



Hi Milliesgran,
Little Millie won't like the dips in the lawn. The only way to get rid of dips is to cut out a herring bone pattern over them.Lift and roll back the turf, fill the hollow with soil, roll the turf back, tread and roll the turf and water in.

we had a large bowl shaped dip in our lawn, i ordered a 1 tonne bag of topsoil. spread this over the area and levelled, then reseeded and covered in netting , to stop the birds from eating it all. from memory it was about this time of the year, and by the summer we had a new lawn.
