How It Works

For pads we start by removing all organic material off the location until left with a suitable subsoil material. Unless engineered differently, we will decide based on drainage, preference, building features, and type of material on our cut and fill. For select fill we will haul in red clay at proper moisture and compact with a padfoot roller in 6-8” lifts. Depending on builder preference we generally do a 5’ at-grade overbuild on all sides. Entire pad shall be +\- a 1/10th. Slopes will be “mow-able” and at least a 3:1. We generally save the initial scraped organic material to be put back on clay slopes to quickly tie into surrounding landscape during construction. Based on concrete contractor and type of foundation we generally prep the pad with 3/4” base at grade. Pads will be designed to drain water away from the structure and swales, berms, and other drainage may be added if needed.
