Today we would like to talk about Rough and Finish Grading and how important it is.
The Rough Grade is the base and first step toward turf establishment. Setting the proper grade and drainage is vital to prevent water damage to your yard and home. Our grading equipment and laser technology help achieve proper shaping which may involve additional topsoil–We supply rich, sifted soil for best results. We guarantee proper drainage on our rough grades, taking extra care to make sure that all our grades are correct and up to city code. When a rough grade is not shaped properly, serious drainage problems can occur. Improper drainage can cause flooding in road ditches; and also cause standing water in your yard, destroying the turf. Around a foundation, it can cause water to seep into the house. We can correct drainage on already established yards and new construction sites to help keep a dry basement and protect your home and yard from water damage.
The Finish Grade is the foundational manicure of every fine lawn. It provides the final shaping and prepares the seed bed or sod base for completion. Before finish grading can begin, the rough grade must be set within 1” of the final grade, and proper drainage established. Our finish grading equipment is designed to remove extra rock and debris from the seedbed while pulverizing the soil, creating a smooth finish. We take great pride in achieving the best finish grade possible. After completed, we test and correct pH levels to ensure soil sustenance. We do not hire amateurs or “summer help” to put in our yards.
