Grading

Description

Land grading, also known as land leveling or grading, is the process of adjusting the slope and elevation of a piece of land to create a more uniform, stable, and usable surface. It is typically carried out using heavy machineries like graders, bulldozers, or excavators, and it may involve cutting, filling, or moving soil and other materials to achieve the desired slope and elevation.

Purposes/Utility

N

Grading creates a level and stable surface for constructing buildings, roads, or other structures. A properly graded site helps ensure the stability of foundations, reducing the risk of structural problems or failure

N

By creating a gentle slope, grading helps minimize soil erosion caused by water runoff or wind. This is particularly important in areas with steep slopes or loose soil, where erosion can lead to land instability and property damage.
