The previous owners of our house brought in truckloads of dirt and now the back yard is 3 inches ABOVE the foundation instead of 3 inches below. It's not level anywhere and water drains INTO the house. Is there a way I can regrade this myself rather than spending $3-5K for professionals? I'm not afraid of digging, but how do I dispose of the tons (probably literally) of dirt?
