If your front yard or back yard floods after it rains, it’s time to re-grade your yard. Standing water is the most common symptom of an incorrect grade. It can cause issues like flooded basements, poor soil quality, and insect infestations. Regrade your yard to improve the drainage and save the foundation of your home.
Grading in Oakland County Michigan
The first rule of grading is that the ground should slope away from your home in all directions. The maximum slope in a lawn should be roughly twelve inches for every four feet. Grading is the removal of topsoil from excess areas and filling in low areas of the yard that are in need. The main focus of a grading project is to prevent drainage issues.

Sod + Grading
After your grading is complete you will need to replace the missing grass. Most of our customers decide to install Sod to repair their yard. Sod is an instant fix to any yard and can immediately make your lawn plush and healthy. Sod can be installed directly after grading the soil, and it’s the best immediate fix. Now, if you aren’t interested in Sod then seeding your lawn is another option. No matter which you select, seeding your lawn or adding sod are both great options.
