I have about 3 acres of ground that I need to grade. My house is sitting "up" ok, but the rest of the yard is holding water. It is a brand new yard that was a farmfield, so I have a lot of work to do. All the "experts" in my family tell me once I get grass planted that this will take care of the problem. I know it will help, but it is not going to take care of the problem. I dont want to buy $3000 worth of seed to have the grass turn yellow and die because of the standing water. What is the best way to go about getting a good grade on this ground? I have all the equipment at my disposal(one of the above mentioned experts is my father in law that does every aspect of landscaping except the grass part...trees, mulch, backhoe rental etc..)Any help would be greatly appreciated.
