Types of Grading in Construction

There are multiple types of grading in construction projects:

Landscape Grading

Undergoing a landscaping project municipal or commercial may call for topsoil removal for installing irrigation systems, smoothing areas for planting, and modifying slopes or elevations to improve drainage or create a change in appearance. Landscape grading is often referred to as the process of reshaping a land area to modify water runoff patterns or otherwise alter property elevations. Getting the job done right is important to ensure proper drainage and to achieve the best results.

Architectural Grading

Changing the contours of a land area for a new home, housing development, or commercial property typically relates to changing the contours of the landscape to accommodate proper drainage, remove undesirable elevations, and prepare foundation areas.


re grading involves lowering or raising the levels of a land area. This can involve large areas or a small project.

Finished Grade

For specific purposes such as gravel roads and earthworks projects, grading extends to include the surface and cover of the finished construction, not just the base. In landscaping projects, finish grading refers to finishing the final contour of the project, shaping the desired area to prepare for planting, seeding, or sodding. Finish grading includes putting the final touches on the grading project. This step provides a smooth surface with the removal of such items as large chunks of soil, rocks, and other undesirable debris.

Rough Grading

setting the slope or leveling an area for such projects as landscaping, providing a base for turf development, or resolving drainage issues is termed rough grading. This may include adding, removing, or relocation of topsoil. This stage shapes the ground to the desired basic shape and elevations, creates the desired soil composition, and establishes the drainage flow.

Final Grade

  • to complete the grading process and prepare for the final landscaping or seeding, there is often a need to finish the surface with a material that promotes growth. Final grading construction involves covering the area with a coating of screened topsoil or similar matter to complete the grading project.

Asphalt Paving

New Construction Paving

When laying new asphalt, our team pays attention to even the smallest of details. We provide the initial excavation and grading, and then we will apply a layer of aggregate to serve as a base. Finally, a durable asphalt mix will be laid down, compacted and smoothed for a perfectly even surface.


Depending on various factors including levels of traffic, weather and quality of asphalt, your pavement may develop cracks and signs of wear. If the damage is significant, it may require re-paving services. We remove the old asphalt and ensure that the existing aggregate base is up to our high standards. We will then apply the new asphalt.
