When planning a project, it is important to know the difference between excavation and grade. The two techniques are different, even though they look similar. You can choose to use each technique in the future by understanding their purpose.
There are a few steps to follow in order to prepare your land for construction. No matter whether the project involves a new commercial building or an addition to a home, you must follow these steps. Before construction can start, the property must be cleared of debris and shaped. Excavation and grading is a key component of this process.
The purpose of excavating is to remove obstacles and change the shape of the plot. Excavators remove debris, boulders and stumps from the construction site. They then transport them to a dump truck. These machines create new layouts by digging holes and making dirt piles around the property.
Grading begins after the debris has been removed. This heavy equipment uses a spade-like tool to scrape the soil. The metal sheet rolls over the surface and spreads out the topsoil. This will reduce any bumps or pits on the property. Greenbar Excavation will build on this clean and safe foundation. This post was written by Tanner Brown.
