Why Grading?

Yard leveling isn’t just to get a better-looking property ready for designer landscaping, it can be done for a multitude of benefits.

A level yard will immediately provide you with more space, and an easier space to maintain. A property with some hills can look great at first, but when it comes to mowing that property it’s not so much fun.

Erosion and drainage are also problems that uneven lots face. Sick of pests like mosquitoes using your yard to breed? Then take away the dips that hold water and allow them to do so. And while you’re doing that, you’ll be preventing the loss of topsoil and fertilizers caused by erosion.

One of the most practical uses for land grading, is to avoid basement flooding. When managed properly, you can stop water buildup finding its way to your basement!

The Cost of Leveling Your Landscape

At Alif Trucking, we’ll take a look at your residential or commercial property first and discuss your plans to determine whether or not grading is the right option for you. From there, we’ll be able to supply you with an accurate estimate.

On average, a small grading job will start off at $500, with typical jobs costing $2,500 and larger jobs ranging anywhere up to $6,000.
