Driveway Grading Process

At a glance, adding a driveway to a property sounds like an easy task. However, in order to do it correctly, several essential steps must be followed before the driveway can be built. 

The crucial components of any land or driveway grading service include:

  • Base Leveling
  • Stable Subgrade
  • Proper Drainage
    • Channel water flow
    • Flooding prevention
  • Foundation Protection


While you can build a driveway without grading services, it is highly not recommended! Without proper grading services, your driveway will not function correctly. Drainage, level, durability and the lifespan of your driveway will be affected by skipping this step.

The lifespan of your driveway can be threatened by the erosion of rainfall. A driveway that was built with drainage in mind will not retain water, but drain it off the surface to prevent damage and deterioration. If a driveway ever has standing pools of water, this is an indicator of driveway grading issues that should be addressed. 

One of the best steps to take to ensure a longer lasting driveway is to make sure there is stable subgrade ground beneath your driveway. Without a stable subgrade, a driveway is more susceptible to wear and tear and will need more repairs than a driveway with subgrade.
