Yard Grading & Resloping Services

Landscape Grading: an ancient practice

Yard grading, or resloping is the practice of moulding and shaping the Earth to a desired level or slope. It’s a technique that has been around for thousands, if not millions of years, found most commonly in gardens or crop fields like the rice fields of ancient China. Though it has been practiced through the ages, it still occurs today, in millions of yards across the globe.

It’s an unfortunate truth that not every home will be built with adequate grading in mind, which can lead to some serious consequences. Inadequate grading leads inevitably to poor drainage and moisture. If poorly drained water sits and pools around the foundation of a home, serious structural issues can occur over time. Yards and landscaping also suffer greatly from poor drainage, causing rot, and even potential pest issues from stagnant pools of water.

You may have noticed some of the signs of poor grading, such as the bad drainage, and uneven ground, but it’s important to remember that this type of project should never be undertaken alone. The process means the removal of topsoil, and then moulding and shaping, carving away at the soil with professional machinery. If not done correctly, it could be catastrophic. Untrained homeowners could accidentally do more harm than good, endangering their home and property more, rather than fixing anything--which is why it’s best to call the professionals!
