It’s that picture-perfect property. The lawn grass appears lush, it has just the right amount of shade, and the ground is level and inviting. That is until closer inspection of the building on the property where you find evidence of small water issues that are impacting the structure. At first, you may think it means that the building itself needs repair, but it could actually indicate a larger problem in the grading of the lawn.
The grading of a lawn, whether at a home or business will determine the drainage of the yard and not only how it impacts growth within your yard, but the impact on other elements of your property. Low spots, flat spots, or yards that slope toward buildings could create areas where water collects or will push the water in an undesirable direction.
In the Fargo-Moorhead area, proper grading is vital to the heavy rainy season experienced from April through September. Because of the susceptibility to heavy amounts of rain within a short period of time, improper grading can cause significant damage that may not appear until it’s too late.
Benefits Of Proper Final Grading
When your lawn is properly graded, you can rest assured that during those heavy rains, your lawn is doing its job. A properly graded lawn will help you avoid:
- Soggy and mushy areas
- Standing puddles that are likely to attract insects like mosquitoes
- Mud that is pushed onto your driveway, parking lots, or walkways is then tracked indoors
- The roots of trees, bushes, and other plants not having the space needed to properly grow
- Ice forming in the wintertime, causing damage to the lawn in the springtime
