I worked up 1600 sq ft more garden space. There was a low spot cutting across the corner (red) where water from my entire front yard drained across the back and into the field. This was going to be an ongoing wet spot until I did something about it.

 

I cut down 2 high spots (black), pulled the topsoil into the low spot in the garden, and redirected the waterway. I may sow some grass at some point, but if not, something will grow there eventually..

 

The 446 with the back blade does a pretty good job moving dirt.

I didn't think about pictures until I was done.

Looks good. You don't have the rocks in the topsoil that we have here.
