    Is there a way to level a lawn without tearing out all the sod and replanting? I have some low spots that I would like to make level. Thanks!

    Typically not a problem. I would aerate and them top dress with 1/4 inch of a very high quality compost. Meaning make sure the compost is fully cooked. You can repeat as needed in deeper areas or be more agressive on some spots depending on your grass type.

    Thanks! How long after top dressing can I mow? And can I just use peat moss out of the bag from the hardware store?
