Lawn levelling with step

I have a small slightly sloping lawn and would like to put in a step using railway sleepers and make both areas flat. Is there any specific time of year when I should do this?


  • I find it easier to lift turf when it is wet as it is easier to slide the spade under it.

  • I'd do it while the grass is actively growing so it recovers quicker. Avoid hot dry spells - the grass'll get the huff and you'll get your neck sunburnt! x
