Grading is usually the first item to address on a project. This is the time to evaluate drainage, soil conditions, and elevations for walls or steps. Our philosophy is like that of a painter starting with a clean canvas. The site needs to be clear of weeds, rock, and debris. On site preparation is a contributing factor to our success of seeding lawns.
Our top of the line equipment allows us to provide the services for our clients, which helps save our clients money and time. In the prepping of the soil, we use the revolutionized soil conditioner. The soil conditioner has a reel of rotating carbide teeth. This action removes weeds and rocks while leveling the surface. The end result is a clean, graded canvas. When soil on property is below finish grade, fill or top soil must be brought in. Topsoil is also needed to replace or topdress nutrient depleted soil. Sometimes when the area is too rocky, has a clay, or sand based soil, it’s recommended to bring in topsoil. Our topsoil supplier has been the same for over a decade. Its a rich dark soil that successfully grown hundreds of lawns.
