Determine the Type of Material For Leveling
When choosing material for lawn leveling, think about what suits your needs. Generally, leveling uses a mixture of fine sand and organic material, such as peat moss or topsoil. The fine sand fills holes evenly while the organic material helps feed the grass. Although many find a 2:3 ratio of soil and sand to be helpful, others prefer to forgo the organic material entirely and use only sand. Many golf courses only use sand to achieve the smoothest finish. Combine any material and mix thoroughly before beginning your project. Additionally, no matter what material you choose, make sure that it is completely dry before using it to avoid any clumps.
Safe Operation of Tow-Behind Drag Lawn Levels
Remember that tow-behind drag lawn levels are hazardous if not used correctly. That is why safety is always a priority when using them.
First, make sure to securely attach the tow-behind drag lawn level to your vehicle before beginning to use it. Check that all the necessary straps and chains are in place and securely fastened. This ensures that the equipment does not become detached from your vehicle while in use, which could cause an accident or injury. Additionally, inspect the condition of the straps or chains before each use to ensure that they are still strong enough to hold up the load.
Look Out For Obstacles
It’s also important to plan ahead when using tow-behind drag lawn levels. If there are any trees, shrubs, rocks, or other obstacles in the way of your path, make sure to clear them away before taking off with your equipment. This reduces the risk of damaging either yourself or your property in case something goes wrong. Additionally, always look around for any potential hazards before beginning work, such as power lines or underground utilities, to prevent any electrical accidents from occurring during operation.
