I have a nice Bermuda grass in my small front yard. But soil is uneven so it cuts unevenly. So I need to level the soil. Any suggestions to smooth out the dips?
Two ways. Raise the low areas or lower the high areas.
To raise the low areas cut a large X where the dip is and peel back the sod and fill in to bring the sod up to the level of the rest of the area.
To lower the high spots cut a large X in the turf, peel back the sod, and remove enough of the soil to lower that high spot to the level of the rest of the area.
Some may tell you to simply spread some "dirt" on the low areas to bring that up to level, and you could but that will often kill the grass growing there which then requires replanting.
The sign of a good gardener is not a green thumb, it is brown knees.
