"Final grade" refers to the topsoil layer that must be installed before any landscape work can be completed. In residential projects the final grade must be inspected and passed by a city of Edmonton engineer or affiliate.
The city of edmonton engineer is looking for proper topsoil depth as it relates to pre-established numbers after the clay based rough grade. Surveyor firms deal with the inspection; They base their decision (pass or fail) on a criteria built around both a visual inspection of the yard’s swale and grade and whether appropriate topsoil depths are reached at certain points in the yard.
The contractors we refer guarantee their final grades and have completed hundreds of final grade projects in and around the Edmonton area.
