News headlines in 2017 were dominated for weeks at a time with coverage of natural disasters striking parts of the United States — from Hurricane Harvey flooding homes in Houston, to Hurricane Irma destroying houses in Florida, to wildfires decimating swaths of homes in California. All told, the costs of these incidents are likely to make 2017 the costliest year on record for natural disasters.
However, if you feel overwhelmed thinking about this and don’t want to risk making a mistake that’ll hurt your property, call a contractor to come over and give his opinion on what needs to be done. A steep slope or difficult soil may make it difficult to level on your own without heavy-duty equipment. The contractor will be able to work with you to ensure the problem is solved, so if you have the money to pay them, it’s a great option to consider.
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.
