Below are the major causes of unevenness on your lawn.

Causes of Unevenness on Your Lawn

Soil Settlement

Activities taking place below your lawn can alter the composition of your lawn. The rubble underneath could be due to a strong and bigger growth of rocks and underground installation of pipes.


Galling foxes and cats from the neighborhood happily stray into your lawn, especially at night. Mostly the animals do so when your lawn is most susceptible, thereby leaving it uneven.

Too Much Water on the Lawn Surface

The weather can cause lumps and bumps on your lawn during the cold months of the year. If you allow surface water to stay on your lawn for extended periods, it can cause extensive damage. This explains why you need to ensure your lawn is properly drained.


Children playing on your lawn when the soil is susceptible, especially after leveling, can apply pressure on your lawn. This adversely affects the health of the grass on your lawn and other long term issues on the surface.

Night crawlers

Terrestrial worms that burrow into the soil on your lawn can be so annoying even as they aerate your lawn. At times, the insects can shift a lot of soil to the surface.
