When It Rains It Pours: Landscape Grading

The saying “when it rains it pours” took on a whole new meaning for many people on July 8th, 2013 including a number of our customers who had their basements flooded. It was incredible to see the amount of destruction that water could do in such a short period of time. One of our customers took a picture of a ravine near their backyard that had transformed into a raging river of 80 feet wide and 20 feet deep.
