Earthwork and Grading
in Belleville, ON


What is Earthwork & Grading?

Earthwork and grading is the process of preparing a site for construction by reshaping, leveling, and compacting the soil. Major benefits of earthwork and grading are the opportunity to remediate or replace inadequate or contaminated bases, and subsequently to grade the surface to direct surface water away from the house or building. Uneven land prevents proper water drainage. During heavy rainfall, the water can flow towards the building rather than away. If excess water is adjacent to the foundation, it can cause cracks, flooding or even ‘frost jacking’. These can be very costly repairs, so it's better to get these issues resolved as soon as possible.

In addition to preventing damage to your home, land grading can prevent damage to your landscape and keep your plants healthy. Part of the reason land grading can improve plant health is water drainage issues. Water can pool in a specific lawn area, like the bottom of a hill during heavy rainfall. That water pooling can lead to grass and other plants becoming overwatered. Water-logged landscapes tend to attract mosquitos and other pests.

Customer Testimonials

We were very impressed with the quality of the work. They came and excavated the driveway, cleaning the area better than when they came! Sweeping the road, etc. They kept us informed as to when they would come back to lay ashfault. We were impressed with the attention to detail that the guys had. They graded it so it doesn't have rain water running back to the house and instructed us on the care after. Very professional! Guys were great. And the guy working the Bobcat and the roller was awesome! You could tell he has a lot of experience! Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a quality job! Thanks Trenton Paving!
