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.
When you’re a homeowner, you have to deal with constant surprise challenges you may not have thought about back when you were renting a place to live. Your house may have been in pristine condition when you moved in, but time will show some issues your real estate agent may have not noticed or forgot to tell you about when you toured the place.
In grading, you measure the slope of your yard and put grass down on top of the finished product to secure your new soil in place. The goal is to give water a place to run that will hold up long-term and protect your house’s foundation. By taking care of the issue yourself, you’ll learn how to lay seed or sod, which will make you more knowledgeable about taking care of that grass as it grows.
