It may not be necessary to level the ground, because the padding you place under the swingset - be it pea gravel, bark/wood
chips, or sand - will cover a multitude of lumps.

I found it easier to simply frame the play area (like a raised-bed flower garden using 4x6 lumber), cover the area with old
newspaper (b/w only) to kill and keep out weeds, and fill to the rim.

Having formerly been in the lawn & Landscape business I highly reccommend this!! Mowing and trimming around swing sets is aggravating. Also if it gets put to good use where the swings are will become more wore down depending how dry your ground gets.
