A properly graded yard gently directs water away from your foundation to protect both your home and landscape.

Leveling out a yard to gently direct water flow away from your home prevents serious damage to your foundation and landscape. A lawn sloped toward your house needs to be re-graded, and the team at Xceptional Hardscapes can tackle that project for you. A yard that has not been properly graded can result in:

  • Standing water or puddling
  • Leaks in your home
  • Foundation issues
  • Waterlogged plants
  • Rot in trees and bushes
  • Ice buildup in wintertime
  • Soil erosion
  • Mud on your hardscape features
  • Attracting mosquitoes and other pests

Expert Grading for Proper Drainage and Landscaping

After we complete an in-person assessment of your property, we map out what grading and drainage system is appropriate for your needs. When it comes time for implementation, Xceptional Hardscapes uses premier equipment to efficiently and accurately re-grade your yard.

For new homes — once grading is completed and all segments of the landscape drain away from the foundation — we can also begin building your lawn. Our services include installation of sod, seed, straw and fertilizer. We provide these same offerings to previously constructed homes.
