Two of our best techniques for taming the landscape are grading and leveling. Here are a few of our best tips for how grading and leveling can transform your lawn.

Foundations for Healthy and Beautiful Landscapes

From shaping rolling hills to carving out more space, grading and leveling techniques can transform your lopsided lawn into a sanctuary. Grading and leveling can take eroding landscapes or uneven lawns and create a strong, healthy, and functional space by:

  • Creating Drainage- Draining issues are a major problem on sloped landscapes. Grading the land can control where and how water runs and drains on your property. This directs the water runoff away from your home and prevents property damage, mold, and puddling.
  • Improve Stability- A common drainage issue is erosion. Combining grading, leveling and a retaining wall installation can provide a strong foundation and end erosion that might affect the foundation of your home or create dangerous spots in your yard.
  • Improve the Health of Your Lawn- Lawns that are constantly eroding lose topsoil. Topsoil is the nutrient-rich upper layer of soil. It can take thousands of years to replace topsoil. As your trusted landscaper in Putnam County and Westchester County grades your lawn, he will carefully replace the topsoil to improve the health of your lawn.

  • Direct Foot Traffic- Flat landscapes tend to have more foot traffic. If you are wanting to keep traffic in a certain area, our experts will help you design the right plan. Sloping hills, ponds, and retaining walls can all be used to keep traffic in the right area.
  • Provide More Surface Area- If you have a hilly lawn or sloping landscape, one of the best things grading and leveling can do is create a larger space. You can turn your hilly landscape into a whole new backyard, giving you room to entertain, play, and relax!
  • Establish Zones- When you grade and level your lawn, you can create different zones for different functions in your lawn. Examples include:
    • Outdoor Entertainment Areassmores in brick fire pit
