uneven lawn

joebaillie asked 7 years ago

Couple of years ago we got connected to water mains and dug a trench for pipes. Soil has now gone down and trench is about 6 inches under level of garden. Is it possible to put soil/sand on top of current grass where trench is and this will remain level. can’t dig up etc due to age + back and trench is about 30 foot

Yes, just spread soil over the existing grass to fill the depression, firm it well and sow grass seed on top. Leave the soil just a little high, one to two centimetres maybe, to allow for a little sttlement when the grass underneath rots.
