Residential and Commercial Grading

Residential grading

S&T can handle all of your development projects from start to finish, whether you need “rough grading” by our scrapers or bulldozers, or “precision grading” which is a more refining or “finish” grade that is performed after the rough grading.  We are also experienced in land clearing and we will haul off any general waste generated by logs, trees, and brush or demolition material at any site in preparation for land improvement or construction projects. 

Once the grading is finished, you may need the site sloped by creating a surface drainage by grading an area so that water collects and flows to a lower elevation away from the site. This is going to prevent erosion, and in addition, we can create a physical barrier, such as vegetation or rock, to absorb some of the energy of the wind or water that is causing the erosion.  You may need storm water management which will intercept storm or rain water that runs off streets, lawns, and other sites.  It must be collected in piped networks and transported off site, either directly to a stream, river, storm water basin, or a sewer system. We can also build you a retention pond to capture diverted storm water runoff as they retain it before releasing it into streams.  They release the water at flow rates and frequencies similar to those that existed under natural conditions.

We also offer our assistance in compacting control-filled areas to develop a foundational support, pavement base, conduit or pipe bedding that fills the tight spaces in the structure of soil.  Retaining walls are structures designed to hold soil to unnatural slopes, as soils are bound between two different elevations.  We build these to reshape the landscape, enabling it to be engineered for more specific purposes like hillside farming or roadway overpasses.

S&T has soil, sand and aggregate spreading which can be used with highly compacted mixtures of soil/aggregate, cement, and water. It is widely used as a low-cost pavement base for roads, residential streets, parking areas, airports, shoulders, and materials-handling and storage areas.  Soil compaction is the process in which a stress applied to a soil makes the air dense so that it can be displaced from the pores between the soil grains.
