Creating a Level Area
by David Smith
I need help with creating a level area.
I have recently purchased a property with an unusual back garden and would be very grateful for some advise. The garden is 12m(w)x 7m length. The problem that I have is that the garden has a very steep gradient.
The difference from the top level to the bottom level of the grass area is a drop of almost 3ft, which is a considerable drop considering the garden is only 7m in length please.
Can you tell me what can be done to level it out or to significantly reduce the gradient to a more respectable level. I have had a number of quotes the cheapest is £2000 which I don't really want to spend. I am a keen gardner and was wondering if I could rectify this myself.
I was thinking about renting a rotavator to reduce the top level by 1ft and using the earth removed to raise the bottom level by 1ft is this possible. I have never used a rotavator but have ascertained that they can be quite simple to use. Please help me !!! I need some professional and impartial advise !

Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant. You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it!!!"
