    We have a relatively level 1 acre area that has two large areas that collect water. Needless to say, the grass dies and weeds take over. We've marked the areas that hold water - outlined 'em with spray paint after a heavy rain last week. I bet theres a 3-4000 ft2 in the two low areas and they need to come up 2-3 inches in the lowest parts. This is all just 'eyeballing' things.

    Are there any 'tricks of the trade' we could use to get it all leveled out? When I say 'relatively level' I mean that there is a bit of slope to one side - most water ends up in a swale then storm sewer - we just want to get it all there. I can get lots of manpower to help - don't have a tractor available

    TIA
    Jim
