Land grading is the process of leveling and reshaping the surface of your land to make it more functional or attractive. Depending on your particular property, land grading can involve removing or adding soil to create a desired slope, elevation or contour on the terrain. Land grading may seem like an easy or straightforward task, but it most often involves professional tools, calculated math and proper resources to do the job well.
When is Grading Used?
Grading is used both for construction projects as well as landscaping projects of all sizes. In construction, land grading may be necessary to prepare the land for building, roadways, drainage systems or other infrastructure. In landscaping, however, homeowners and business owners may simply want a more usable space, which is typically accomplished when the yard is leveled or flattened.
Professional Land Grading Benefits
Land grading commonly requires the use of heavy equipment such as bulldozers, graders and excavators to effectively move the soil and reshape your property. Land grading is often a time-consuming task that even need approval from your local government agency.
