Before any hard-scaping or landscaping projects can take place, you may have to “grade” the area. But what is land grading, and why is it essential to any hard-scaped or landscaped property in Athens?
Land grading is a leveling of the surface. Dirt from higher up is moved into the lower lying areas to create a nice level surface to serve as the foundation for your project. Sometimes land grading your Athens property may require you to haul in additional dirt from somewhere else.
Your Athens property may be graded flat or sloped. If you want to build a stone walkway for example, you'll likely want a nice flat surface on which to lay the stone. However, if you want to channel rain water away from your house, you'll want to grade the land on a slope that runs down and away from your home.
Types of Land Grading for your Athens Property
Each piece of land is different in terms of its natural grading and vegetation. Your property in Athens may have different needs than your neighbors, depending on soil type. As such, there are several different types of land grading.
Southern Classic provides Bobcat Services for Athens Property Owners
A Bobcat (The brand name Bobcat is so popular and synonymous with skid-steer loaders, the general public sometimes mistake it for the name of the actual machine) is a versatile piece of machinery that can scoop and move dirt and then use a different attachment to flatten and smooth out the new surface. We use skid-steer loaders on many Athens properties for final grade.
If you have a house in Athens you need Proper Drainage Solutions
Proper drainage is a critical part of any project. And it can be accomplished by grading the land on a slope to carry water downhill and into a stream or runoff, or by installing drainage pipes and or french drain in the ground.
Excavation for Athens Homes
Sometimes getting the right grade means making a hole, not filling one in. Excavating involves digging down to create a low-lying area such as for the foundation of a structure or road.
On some Athens properties there isn't sufficient dirt in the immediate area to grade the land as needed, so it may be necessary to bring in some topsoil. Topsoil is also useful for providing a foundation of healthy soil for plants to grow and is generally more aesthetically pleasing than the existing dirt.
