It’s that time of year when kids head back to school and you look forward to putting the mower away for the winter. Around here we have had a heck of a summer with extreme high temperatures and infrequent downpours of rain. It has been a challenge keeping the grass green on my side of the street! If you are planning to reseed your lawn this autumn, now is a good time to start studying the yard around your house and see if the grading needs improvement. Most yards can be corrected with minimal time and effort, but don’t hesitate to consult with a professional landscaper if the project seems too daunting. If you have a basement, this is just as important as a good sump pump!
This short video is a great introduction to grading and makes it very easy to understand.
