My yard does NOT sit in a bowl. But . . .

My backyard slopes significantly such that I cannot put a play yard in the back for my toddlers. Also they just cannot play back there. My 19 month only has difficulty climbing up or not falling down the hill. HELP. I have contacted 2 different companies claiming to do grading or offer grading options, but they have never showed up. I am actually willing to have the work done but I am having difficulty finding one who actually wants the work.

Do you need a landscape architect or civil engineer to map out the contour and new grades for you? They will have resources to do the work that will show up.
