WE CAN GRADE YOUR LOT SO WATER RUNS AWAY FROM YOUR HOME
Our Edmonton landscaping services team understands how water flows, is fully versed on the ins and outs of the cities lot grading and drainage bylaws. We work with an engineering firm to provide an approved final grading certificate that is typically mandatory to get your landscaping deposit back from the developer, assuming your house is a new build in a new sub-division.
PROCESS OF LOT GRADING FOR A NEW BUILD
The process goes as follows for new builds in a new development. For most instances the rough grading and rough grading certificate is supplied by the builder. The home owner is then responsible for installing the final grading, hiring a surveyor, and submitting a final grade certificate to the city for approval. Typically any hardscape's such as stamped concrete, stone patios, retaining walls are completed in advance prior to final grading. Careful consideration must go into the layout and slope of these hardscaped items to ensure conformance with building codes and city bylaws. Once the city has approved the final grading then you are able to apply to the developer for your landscaping deposit back.
Our team of professionals will be glad to help for all of your Edmonton residential landscaping requirements.
