Clearing a piece of property, construction site, or land grading may not be the most exciting part of your project, but it is a very important part of the process. All properties here in Central Florida require some type of clearing, removing trees and debris, and leveling the soil, will ensure the land will properly drain and buildings have a firm foundation.
What is land grading?
After the property has been excavated, all the unwanted brush, rocks, roots, tree stumps, dirts and anything else, the land needs to be leveled. Typically known as ‘cut and fill’, Cutting dirt from higher areas and moving it to lower spots.
Ensuring the land is free of any height variations or unnatural elevations. This level base creates a firm foundation for buildings and landscape.
Grading is also a vital component to create proper drainage and prevents erosion.
Why is land grading so important?
If a building, housing development, parking lot, or even a park is built on an uneven piece of property, it will face serious problems down the road. Including, water accumulating around the building’s foundation, damaging the base and landscaping, water damage and flooding, water pollution, soil loss, and erosion.
