But what is land grading, and do you need it?
What is landscape grading?
With a whole host of benefits for the home, landscape grading is when land surrounding a residential or commercial property is leveled. Helping to ensure that water runs properly off of a lawn, or runs down into the underlying soil without flooding, professional grading can help prevent soil erosion and even damage to the structure or foundation of a building.
Ideally, land grading should be carried out when a property is being built, but sadly, the process is often overlooked, with costly and inconvenient consequences.
Does your yard need land grading?
With a range of potential risks developing from unlevel land around your home or business, grading is recommended for all homeowners who want to prevent their homes and yards from being damaged. Here are just some of the problems that unlevel land can cause:
Increase in mosquitoes
If landscape grading isn’t carried out, any one (or all) of the concerns listed above can occur, and in some instances, standing water can even attract mosquitoes, which we all know can carry deadly diseases.
Fortunately, with the help of the tirelessly green thumbed team at Compass Landscaping Services, our grading service can put all of these problems to rest, saving you a lot of money and stress.
