Site Preparation & Grading

Site preparation is the important first step to many landscape construction projects. Eliminating brush, cutting trees and removing stumps are necessary to prepare the land in order for your project to go correctly, and proper site grading provides the critical foundation to any landscaping project. From turning unimproved land into usable real estate to changing the function of your landscape, site preparation provides the blank canvas that is needed.

Common site preparation steps:

  • Consultation and Survey
  • Undergrowth Removal
  • Shrub Removal or Replanting
  • Tree and Stump Removal
  • Rock and Boulder Removal
  • Sod and Debris Removal
  • Earth Removal or Addition
  • Site Leveling and Grading

Site preparation often transitions directly into landscaping, so plantings, grass seeding or installation, and prep work for hardscaping such as retaining walls or walkways often occurs during and right after this process.

The following gallery shows site preparation in advance of landscaping for a backyard. It included tree and stump removal, grading the wild land, as well as plant and lawn installation. Site preparation is usually the first step in any major landscaping project, and unskilled preparation will cause the rest of the project to suffer as well.
