Leveling a sloping backyard

2411 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  GBrackins
I have a yard that slopes up away from the house. I like to level a 24'wX12'D area. To make it level 12 feet from the house, I need to go down 18 inches. I am afraid that me side fence may not be solid after digging 18 inches deep. How can I level my yard and keep the fence strong?

the ground next to your home should slope at least 6-inches within the first 10-feet to direct water away from the foundation
