Summer is typically the best time to start site grading. Unfortunately, not all projects can be completed before winter weather sets in. While site grading can still be done during the winter months, it is more costly. Grading generally takes more time due to wetter soils and more “bad weather” days. Otherwise good soils are frequently wasted because of frost and higher moisture contents.
To help successfully manage these conditions, there are techniques that can keep your project moving forward if you must conduct grading activities during the winter season.
