We'll get your property ready for a lawn and landscape

Properly grading your property is an important step when looking to install a new landscape, or a new lawn, a patio, a driveway, and more.

Property grading refers to the process of shaping and sloping the land around a building or property to improve its appearance, direct water away from structures, and prevent soil erosion. It involves moving soil and grading it to create a level base for construction or to enhance the aesthetics of a landscape.

This process is critical for ensuring the proper drainage of water and preventing water damage to buildings and other structures. A well-graded property is important for the stability of foundations, the preservation of landscaping, and maintaining the overall health of the property.

Why Do You Need Your Property Graded?

  • Do you have water leaking into your basement?
  • Do you have water pooling up around your home when it rains?
  • Are your gardens or lawn areas getting muddy?
  • Does your property have lots of lumps and bumps you want to smooth out?

What To Know About Final Grading Your Property

#1.  Grading For Proper Drainage

The primary reason for property grading isn't just to make everything level and uniform.  The real purpose for property grading is to provide proper drainage by sloping the grade away from your home or other out-buildings and landscape elements.  This is called "positive" grading and it works to direct water away from your structure.  If the grade is sloping towards your home this would be considered a "negative" grade and would lead to water pooling up around your structure which is not a good thing.

#2.  Soil Conditions

The condition of your soil can make an impact on how your property is graded.  Usually the layer of topsoil will need to come off to expose the soil underneath.  This is where we use a machine to actually level and "shape" your property with the desired slope.  If you have very hard clay-based soil (hardpan condition) then this will need to be addressed.

#3.  Matching Existing Fixtures With The Final Grade

This is where it takes a little finesse and a lot of experience with property grading!  You want to make sure your final grade matches your existing landscape fixtures.   You don't want to step off your back patio and drop down a foot onto your lawn.  Ideally your property is graded so the final grade can match up with your existing fixtures but at the same time allowing for the proper slope to prevent water from pooling up and directing into a drainage ditch, swale, or other drainage system.

I highly recommend superb concepts for stamped patios, retaining walls, and landscaping. They installed a very beautiful stamped patio including a compass accent with a firepit. It turned out so beautiful. They also removed mulch, shrubs, etc from one side of my yard and planted seed. It turned out great and now it's easier to maintain. The retaining wall and river rock they installed also look great!! Very satisfied with their work. They are very professional!!

I have been working as a supplier of Tyler at Superb Concepts for a few months now and can say that he runs a very tight ship. They care deeply about the quality of their work and their clients customer experience. If you need a paver patio, a retaining wall, stamped concrete, or any hardscaping or landscape installation projects I wouldn't hesitate to contact Tyler and his team. Thank you Tyler, I really appreciate you.

Very impressed with this company from start to finish! I called for a mulch quote and Tyler was so nice over the phone. He provided an estimate within minutes (I contacted a few other companies for quotes and they didn’t even return my call or said they would come out and give an estimate but never showed up) so Superb Landscape stood out immediately. I loved how they utilized text messaging so I could easily communicate with them. The crew showed up right on time to work. I have a few beds packed full of perennials and Superb mulched the beds beautifully, making sure to get around each plant. They took great care around my flowers and shrubs. They cleaned up at the end of the job and made sure everything was perfect. Highly recommended!! Thanks for making our yard look great.

We had an amazing experience with Tyler and this company. We had a tree fall from our yard into our neighbors yard. We got a quote from another company that said they could not be out for 4 more days. Mind you this tree was blocking the neighbors driveway. I got in touch with this company and they had it done the next day. Plus they charged me 100 dollars less than the other company quoted us for. Tyler was super friendly and professional. I would recommend him for any type of tree removal or lawn care.
