The land grading process usually involves scraping off existing topsoil. It also entails clearing vegetation, and then filling and compacting the soil hence leveling the site.
After which you spread the new topsoil in place (resloping) creating a smooth landscape.
This action usually provides a leveled base for laying new foundation as well as planting cover plants and grass for a perfect yard.
Other secondary uses of grading services include:

What is the importance of yard grading services?
Grading not only allows for more usable space such as a garden, there’s so much more than you would expect. Some of these benefits include:
1. Better irrigation
Lawns need good drainage and a well-graded land ensures better irrigation. Meaning there will be no formation of pools of water in your lawn.
2. Soil erosion control
When a slope is steep, rain or watering your lawn can wash away the topsoil which may result in loss of nutrients. But with proper grading, water runoff is reduced hence protecting your yard’s topsoil.
3. Improved plant life
With effective grading, you certainly will get healthy plants and lawn.
Having a better-graded yard also ensures your home’s foundation is protected as there will be no water flowing towards your house.
