I need to level my lawn, how?

| Private Reply
I just have given up waiting for the once every two weeks gardener to come and have bought a Black and Decker small electric lawnmower.

The problem is the sod was poorly cut and rolled and there is virtually nowhere where the lawn is level and the small wheels dip and make the cutting of the grass very uneven and brown spots appear until it grows for a few days, not to mention hard to cut as I have the wheels all the way down and it sticks on deeper holes.

How can I add soil to level the surface and not kill the grass? The type of grass is the average Savana grass that is everywhere and is only 10 months since the sod was laid on about 3 or 4 inches of good fertile level soil.

Do I use composted type soil/mixture and slowly add it and water it right away or add good regular garden soil until it is leveled out and not water it right away or what?

Is steer manure mixed with chicken manure a good fertilizer for the lawn? Someone recommended this. What is a good fertilizer to use?


Thanks in advance. Alan
