Site Assessment and Planning

  • Initial Consultation: We began with a detailed consultation with the homeowner to understand their goals for the property and how land grading can achieve those objectives.
  • Site Evaluation: Our team conducted a comprehensive site evaluation to assess the current topography and drainage patterns. This assessment helps in planning the grading process to ensure optimal water management and soil conditions.
