Before beginning any new paving project, it is important to ensure that the ground is properly graded. Grading is the process of leveling the land so that whatever is laid on top will be stable and long-lasting. Having a properly graded base will help provide proper drainage, which will keep water from pooling around nearby buildings, as well as in spots on driveway itself, which can cause damage. Grading the land will provide a secure base for laying asphalt for a driveway, parking lot, or other construction project.
