Excavation, land grading, proper drainage, are all things that should come to mind when you start construction on a piece of property. Whether it is a large subdivision, business or a single family home, properly preparing your site is an important step.
Why is Land Grading so Important?
Land grading ensures the ground is reshaped to the planned grades. Proper drainage is imperative for any property in Florida, of which land grading plays an important role. It also helps control sedimentation, soil erosion, and surface runoff.
A solid foundation is essential for a successful project
Water is prevalent here in Central Florida. Costly damages happen when water doesn’t drain properly. Cracks and structural impairments can result when the property isn’t properly graded. Water should never be allowed to pool around the foundation. Proper grading also discourages erosion of the land.
Set the Tone for the Rest of the Project
Whether it is new construction or an existing building, having a plan established by a professional ensures your project won’t have problems in the future. When your grading is properly performed it addresses a ‘buffer zone’ of vegetation, current regulations, and backfill around the foundation. If not, erosion, foundation and moisture issues, termites, and even legal problems can develop.
