I need to grade my backyard and I am looking for the best way to do it. I have about 1/4 of an acre, and it is higher in the back and slopes down to my house. I don't know if I can just rent a tiller and smooth out the yard, because I have a chain link fence that is a lot higher in the back than it is in the front. I am willing to do it myself, (frankly because I don't want to pay a landscaper a couple grand) but Im not sure of the best way to go about it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
