my garden has tons of low spots, its annoying.

how can i even it out? Ive tried compost & sand a few times and it did help a little but there is still some nasty dips i am tempted to rip the whole thing up and start again

topsoil the whole thing.

Keep in mind that any topsoil or fill you add will settle a bit, so be sure to mound it up higher than where you'd like it. I just did some of the same thing when re-seeding my lawn last September.

Edit: And invest in a hard rake if you haven't already. Best tool for the job.

Just go at the thing with power tools. I've been living my whole life that way and it hasn't stopped working for me just yet.

The solution in California appears to be to pave your lawn and park your cars on it.

Jump up and down on the higher bits until it's level.

Or jump down and up on the lower bits.

Just burn it all. No lawn, no problem.

Ah, the Kilgore approach to landscape gardening.

Relish the randomness of nature; embrace its wonders and the uniqueness of your lawn. Also don't mow it.

Take off and nuke the site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.
