    Our Dirt Work and Grading Services

    Building projects that require a foundation to be laid first would benefit from grading services. Sloping ground makes laying a foundation difficult or impossible until it has been leveled. Rough terrain can also make laying a foundation difficult. Carter Land Care dirt work and Bobcat services in Florida can create a level surface on which to lay the foundation.

    Grading is often done for the base course of a road or railway. A paved road needs a level surface before any paving can be done. Railways also need level surfaces without any rough spots or obstructions that could impact the smooth operation of the train. In the case of gravel roads, dirt roads, and other earthworks, the result of the grading work forms both the base and surface of the completed project.

    Sometimes dirt work services are needed for aesthetic reasons. If your property is going to be undergoing landscaping work, you may need a more level surface on which to work. Gardens can also benefit from level terrain. It’s difficult to work on a slope, and if it’s steep, it could affect the root system of plants and the amount nutrients they absorb. Many nutrients tend to run off as water carries them, and valuable soil, downhill. Other aesthetic purposes for grading services include slope terracing and contouring.

    Grading can create just the right drainage surface for your property. A gentle slope helps to direct runoff from storm water and irrigation flows.

    Buildings that require a driveway to be built use grading services beforehand. Driveways usually need a level surface or gentle slope.

    This type of work involves a variety of tools and techniques. Typically, it begins with a topographic survey to take measurements and identify potential problems. Equipment used for the actual grading work can include bulldozers, excavators, crawlers, and track loaders. Fine finish-grading is usually done with skid-steers or graders.
