Drainage & Evaporation

It is important to determine the drainage pattern of the entire yard to most effectively make use of natural precipitation and plant selection.  Yards are generally divided into positive grade, negative grade, rear slope & front slope. The rough and final grade is crucial to ensure a successful finished landscape product.
