It’s human nature to become accustomed to watches and warnings if you live in an area that experiences such warnings every year. Resist the tendency to take these too lightly. Every storm is different, and a complex number of factors can either increase or decrease any storm’s intensity quickly. Review the experiences of others to see how your carrier handled similar claims in the past, and above all, stay safe.
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.
Don’t put off grading your yard if you notice signs of bad drainage. Repairing your landscaping and the foundation of your house will prove to be much more expensive than fixing the immediate drainage problem, and once it’s fixed, you could make your house worth more. Grading will help you sleep better at night when that next thunderstorm rolls in, because you’ll know the water will be successfully diverted away from your house.
