What is Grading & Gravel Work?
Grading and gravel work is the process of preparing a site for construction by reshaping, leveling, and compacting the soil. One major benefit of grading is improving water dispersement and preventing damage to homes from water pooling. Uneven land prevents proper drainage. During heavy rainfall, the water can flow towards the building rather than away. If this water sits around the foundation, it can cause cracks or flooding. These can be very costly repairs, so it's better to get these issues resolved as soon as possible.
In addition to preventing damage to your home, land grading can prevent damage to your landscape and keep your plants healthy. Water can pool up in a specific lawn area, like the bottom of a hill during heavy rainfall. That water pooling can lead to grass and other plants becoming overwatered. Overwatered landscapes tend to attract mosquitos and other pests.

What Clients Say
We had to replace our main sewer line and the plumbing company had to dig up a large portion of the driveway about 7 feet deep. Productive asphalt was able to come and assess the driveway as well as give me an estimate the same day. They did a tremendous job of compacting the ground again, digging out the old gravel, grinding the entire driveway and then putting down two layers of new asphalt! The driveway looks amazing! The owner of the company was very professional and friendly, even gave us pointers on how to prevent the tires from leaving marks on new asphalt. They were able to quickly fit us in, as we were in a time crunch to get this all fixed before listing the home on the market. Highly recommend them if you are looking for a great company to take care of your driveway.

We had a sinkhole in our driveway that was previously patched by another company four years ago and did not hold. I was very stressed! After seeing some very good reviews I called Productive Asphalt. Mark came over, quickly diagnosed the problem and put a plan in place. I was very impressed by his knowledge and concern for my issue. I immediately felt like I was in good hands. When his team came over the level of professionalism was immediately apparent. Mark was there to oversee all of the work and assure that this problem was corrected the right way. I am very grateful to no longer have to worry about my driveway. I highly recommend this company. They are true experts and a pleasure to work with!
