That grass doesnt look too bad...a good few weels TLC on that and it will come good...just get some compost...some seeds...lots of watering...and maybe get a roller to level it off...

Cant see why you would want to dig that up...

Try leveling it with topsoil first. Just spread some on the low spots. Plenty of water and aerate it when the grass grows through it. Easier and cheaper than returfing.

HUGE garden for that sized house I agree with the top soil idea, will be less hassle.

nice size garden.

Id be tempted to try and pull some of those mounds around and level it off.
