You may think you don’t care if you have puddles in your backyard or a tiny stream that runs for days between your flowers after a thunderstorm, but grading your yard could add value to your property, or at least lessen the negative impact water problems could have on a future sale price. If you aren’t completely sure this is the house you’ll always live in, it’s in your best interest to make your property worth as much as possible.
The outcome of these disasters — many uninsured and underinsured consumers — should serve as a call to action for insurers. They must do more to educate consumers on what is not protected against losses in the policies they purchase.
Here are three reasons to look into grading your yard sooner rather than later. Any land with a sloping hill leading into your property is going to cause water to drain into your yard or driveway. That water will eventually wear away your landscaping, leaving rivers between your bushes or pools of water in your backyard and potentially causing flooding problems in your basement. If you don’t fix the problem as soon as you recognize it, your property will be eaten away by water erosion, leading to a more expensive future project of having to bring soil in and re-landscape your entire yard.
