Frequently Asked Questions

Lot grading refers to the shaping and leveling of the land on a property to ensure proper drainage. It involves manipulating the slope and elevation to direct surface water away from buildings and towards appropriate drainage systems.

The grading process starts with an initial consultation, site assessment, and pricing. Once everything checks out, we start the process of regrading the lawn with new soil or use the existing soil if possible. We always top coat the final grade with high quality nutrient dense soil to ensure a healthy lawn grow.

We use precise technology that measures the grade, ensuring correct slopes to run that water away from your house.

Smaller sites can be done in one day, while larger ones may take two days.

Signs of improper lot grading include water pooling around the foundation, basement flooding, soil erosion, and uneven settling of structures. If you notice these issues, it's important to address them promptly to prevent further damage.
