Leveling ground under grass?

Sure. I have two methods for filling in a caved-in area.
1. Sift 1/2" of topsoil over the area and allow that to settle in, perhaps a month or two. Repeat until the area is level.
2. Using a flat bladed shovel cut an "H" into the sod. Carefully cut underneath each flap, fold back the two flaps, add topsoil, and press the flaps back into place. Water. Water the area again the next day. This method works well for smaller areas.
Stay off the grass when it is wet.
