Drainage, Grading, & Lawn Establishment

Drainage and grading are the foundation of your entire landscape. People notice trees and plantings, but you will be the one to notice if your landscape foundation is weak or poorly designed.  Proper drainage and grading allows your home to be protected from water and provides the foundation for your lawn. When building a home one of the first concerns is directing water away from the foundation and providing erosion control for your property. La Rosa can properly grade and design drainage solutions for your property.

Drainage, Grading, & Lawn Establishment includes:


Do you have water in the basement, pooling during the spring thaw or a retaining wall that is failing? These are all symptoms of poor drainage. Some issues are as easy to fix as adding soil along the foundation, but others are far more difficult to solve.
