Landscape Grading in Johnston County NC

Grading is the process of modification of existing landform to accommodate new structures, parking and circulation and to ensure positive drainage.

Consideration must be given to utilities such as: water gas, power, communication services, and sewerage for disposal of wastewater, and storm water.

Grading process requires a careful change of contours so that they support the integration of building with the site.

  1. The ground surface must be suitable for the intended purpose or use
  2. The visual result should be pleasing
  3. The result of any grading must have positive drainage
  4. The grading plans should attempt to keep new levels as close as possible to the original state of the land
  5. When ground is reshaped it should be done positively and at the scale of the machinery
  6. Top soil much be conserved wherever possible
  7. The quantity of cut should be approximately equal to the quantity of the fill

Landscape grading can be carried out in various ways, but it is something that should be considered, if possible, in conjunction with your landscape design. In this way, your landscape can be created for both aesthetics and function, and drainage problems will be eliminated. If drainage problems arise later, successful landscape grading and drainage can still be accomplished, but with a bit more difficulty.
