4. Fill in all hollows.
Fork over the soil to a depth of 2 inches (5 cm) to break up any compaction or large clods. Remove any large stones. After digging, tread it down lightly, otherwise it will sink again after repairing.
5. Choose a good quality top-dressing.
Fill each hollow until it is level with the surrounding soil. Rake it over to break the soil down to a fine tilth, and then add more if necessary. Add a pre-seeder fertilizer to the soil.
6. Gently fold back the flaps of turf.
Firm each one down by tamping it with the back of a rake. Start at the edges of the square and work your way into the center. Do a final check to ensure that the ground is now level.
