I just recently moved into a new house and whomever leveled out the backyard did a horrible job. I have several places in the middle of the yard that have 10-15 foot in diameter "mounds". My question is, is it best just to take away that dirt and spread it around the rest of my yard to make the yard level? Or do I need to bring up the rest of the yard around the mounds? Also the side of my house has a nice 10 inch or so grade on until it hits the fence line. If I try to level that area out some will the dirt just erode away?
