More About Final Grading in Edmonton
At Certified Landscape Construction, we ensure that the final grading and sodding of your yard is perfect. In order to ensure that water flows where it should, we smooth out the land to form a slope in some strategic areas. This can be done with topsoil or in some cases with sand. This process is called final grading. Let’s go over it in a little more detail.
Why is grading necessary?
Grading, also known as sculpting or leveling the land is essential to prepare the terrain of the site to suit specific elements such as making a driveway, a deck or patio, a walking path, or your main grassy areas.
In addition, slopes created through grading help ensure water flow is away from the house which is important to protect your foundation from leaks or other major damage.
Poor grading can also result in pooled water in certain parts of the yard which can cause plants and grass to become waterlogged. This water logging can damage the landscaping in the long run.
We at Certified Landscape Construction make sure that the Grading is done properly!
You will know there are grading issues with the land when the ground is not even. Another sign is that when you water the garden or lawn, you will notice the water drainage is not proper. There will be small patches of pooled water.
Certain times the elevations are incorrect per site controls. This is something that a professional can assess and assist you with. It must be noted that grading issues can be found on any property regardless it is occupied or unoccupied. Also, all grading is not done right in the first attempt. Sometimes it requires correction (re-grading).
Though homeowners can rent bulldozers for grading the garden or lawn themselves, it is not recommended. If the grading is done incorrectly, you may wind up doing more damage than good to the property. In case the incorrect grading causes structural damage, then the repair costs can become an expensive affair. That’s why it is best to call us in to ensure that the final grading is perfect.
More About Sodding
Sod, also known as the turf, is the grass as well as the portion of soil under it, which is held together by the roots of the grass. The soil can also be held together by a piece of thin foreign material. Sod is useful for those who wish to establish lawns in residential properties or sports stadiums, athletic fields, golf courses, etc. in commercial properties. Sodding helps prevent soil erosion and has also proven to be effective in improving air quality. Sod helps increase cooling of air around the property and prevents flood by effectively draining water. Our sodding experts ensure that the task is done professionally so that the grass grows well and evenly.
Is it better to lay sod or plant seeds?
Laying sod appears to be the preferred choice, primarily because it provides instant gratification. it is also extremely convenient to lay sod rather than to plant seeds, as seeds tend to get blown by the wind or get eaten by the birds etc. and because it takes several weeks for a lawn to appear visually appealing and even more time before the lawn is sufficiently robust for use.
