Land grading refers to the process of shaping the land at a construction site. It involves altering the ground to create a smooth surface, but that doesn’t mean it’s always a flat surface. Land grading may still preserve the natural slopes of the land or create artificial slopes, but the purpose is to create the proper base for future construction or other projects.
There are many applications for land grading. Allow us to touch on some of the most common ones:
- Construction – Land grading is essential for construction projects. It must be done early in the process so that the building will have a strong foundation beneath it. Land grading is also necessary in construction projects because it allows for proper drainage. The land must be graded so that when it rains, water will flow away from the structure.
- Landscaping – Land grading allows landscapers to do their work as their clients see fit. If a client wants a flat and smooth base or one with beautiful hills, land grading can achieve that prior to the actual landscaping. It levels the land to prepare for lawn installation, gardens, and more.
- Agriculture – Land grading can be very useful in agriculture because it may involve strategic leveling for irrigation and drainage purposes.
- Infrastructure – Before constructing roads, parking lots, and other infrastructure, the land will need to be leveled through land grading.
