38. Level a Hump or Hollow in The Lawn

Use a sharp shovel to slice an X in the lawn over the uneven spot, says Roger Cook. Peel back the four triangles of turf to expose the soil underneath, using a utility knife to help slice the roots as you go. Then either dig out the hump—usually a rock or an old stump—or fill the divot with topsoil and compact it. Lay the lawn back in place, and water daily for a week or so.
