Grading

Complex topographical grading exampleWhether it's a more elaborate grading project like the one shown here or a simple adjustment to correct topographical flaws, Jeff Michael Excavating applies our thorough understanding of drainage and water run-off to expertly grading your property. In addition, when grading near or up to a street, our street sweeping equipment is used to leave a clean appearance when we are done.

Be sure to contact us for our expertise in recommending the correct grading and then completing it for you. Don't worry if you think your grading project may be too small, our specialty is homeowner services that many excavation contractors don't want to do.

Below is a featured backyard grading project to help demonstrate our problem solving approach. Click on the first image to launch the enlarged slide show.
