If you’re only in the initial planning stages for a new project, we can get you in contact with surveyors, civil engineers and landscape architects.
Land Grading and Land Leveling Benefits
Land grading is not just for big development projects. Generally speaking, grading land refers to cutting away, moving and placing soil. Typically this is done to make relatively rough terrain more suitable for building construction, landscaping, driveways or roads. More specifically, changing the contours, rises and dips of a parcel of land is usually done to achieve one or more of the following objectives:
- Cut away high spots, hills and rises.
- Fill in low spots, depressions and sink holes.
- Contour land to improve water flow and/or drainage.
- Prepare flt areas (pads) for building foundations.
- Create special features such as retaining ponds.
- Create driveways, roads and access trials for vehicles.
Land Grading Equipment
We have the full range of heavy grading equipment, each designed for a specific type of land grading or lot clearing. Our equipment includes a bulldozer, backhoe, grader, excavator, skid loader, track loader, scraper, yarder, bobcat, trench digger and water wagon. With this equipment we can clear acreage, level building sites, smooth driveways, dig trenches, and more! In addition, we’ve got equipment for specialized work such as mining, agriculture and paving.
Erosion Control Systems
We can install silt fences and erosion control systems to control surface water runoff, and minimize sedimentation and soil erosion. This will help preserve the health of your trees and landscape. Not only that, depending on the community you live in, it may be required by your local building department and sometimes by EPA regulations.
