Hi there,

I posted a bid earlier claiming to have the answer to your problem. I do. I don't like the way they set this system up, so I'm going to give you the info .

What you need is called a water level. It is essentially a long clear hose with water in it. with the ends held sky ward, the water level at each of those ends is exactly the same. One end is in a fixed position, the level marked on both ends. the other goes to each of the other locations. This way you can accurately get level references at distances, over rough terrain and even around corners.

I hope this helps

How would I support a heavy wooden gate over uneven terrain?

You need to go back to the hinges. The is a house near me that has a gated drive that rises sharply from the road. Needless to say a normal hinge system would only allow the gate an opening of a few inches. The hinges on the gate allow all the movement required, it is your problem in reverse, but the answer is the same. That is where you need to get your ironmonger to look.

I want to buy a trampoline for our backyard but there is only one place I can put it and the ground is slightly on a slope. Is this dangerous? Can I even put a trampoline on uneven ground?

It is obviously a preference to put a trampoline on a level ground; however this may not always be the case for some people. If your yard is slightly sloped or uneven there are things you can do to make it safer for a trampoline. Take a look at the following instruction guide:

We changed the blades, changes a spindle and checked the deck and tire pressure on our Poulan Pro Mower. It is still cutting uneven. What else should we check.

Well the plane of the spinning blades obviously is not parallel to the ground. While the ground will never be level, do what you can and first get the mower on a good piece of flat concrete. Measure distance between each corner of the mower deck to the concrete. You have had the deck off, the deck hang mechanisms have some adjustment so you can lower the front of the deck relative to the rear and vice versa, and lower the left relative to the right side, and vice versa. Look for threaded rods with adjusting nuts, pins which can go into different holes, etc.

As a last resort you could google "poulan, mower, manual" which would take you to their website and you can download the manual for the mower. All my mowers, MTD, Husq, Simplicity, came with a manual and had explicit instructions for this process. Most all these mowers are made by Roper or AYP and you may find information by googling those companies.

I'm not sure what your using for posts and I'm assuming you mean the ground freezes and the posts start to move because the ground can't hold them in place anymore. You should be using 4x4 pressure treated posts and a lot of them depending how big your car port will be. You to dig about 2 foot holes only about 6-8 inches around for each post and then you need to pour concrete in each hole around the post (Note:make sure the post is straight and stays straight).

You will need to pour a substantual footing under your posts
I would suggest using Sonet Tubes of at least 12 inches and 24" deep, setting on at least 8" of 3/4 minus gravel, then fill tubes with a good 5 or 6 bag mix of concrete, once it sets surround the concrete with gravel well tamped, You can install connector plates for your posts in the top of the concrete.
You need to have enough weigh and surface so that the water and soil cannot heave the footing

I have a trench 1475' long, with three rows of 3'' pipe.

If the pipes are 3" outside diameter, the displacement is 24.15 cubic yards, however standard 3" pipe is 3.5" diameter, which would displace 32.85 cubic yards. 505.32 cubic yards is correct for the total trench volume.

Thank you for posting your question here on

Landscapers, unless you are concerned about the cause somehow being linked to things like a ruptured city water or sewer line...Then you would need to get your local municipality involved. It is not uncommon for yards to become uneven through freeze/thaw cycles and a simple solution is to get a sod roller and hit the high areas trying to re-level the yard. Be careful not to disrupt overall pitch of the yard or you risk problems with run-off and drainage. For the areas under walkways you may need a concrete leveling service but a landscaper may also offer that or be able to refer you to a reliable local source.

Uneven cut

I suggest you park the tractor on a level hard surface. Measure from the bottom of the deck to the ground on both sides of the deck to see if it is mounted level. The next thing to check for is a bent blade. Good luck.
