Rough Grading by the Contractor
Rough Grading is the responsibility of the contractor. Once the grading is completed, the rough grade certificate is prepared and certified then submitted to the county for approval. If there are any deficiencies, a re-inspection must be scheduled. The homeowner does not need to worry about the first stage of rough grading. When it comes time to landscape the lot, however, the homeowner then takes full responsibility.
Final Grading by the Homeowner
Once the topsoil is placed and the grading is completed, the homeowner needs to contact an accredited Alberta Land Surveyor to provide an as-built survey (or final lot grading certificate). Once the grading passes inspection, the grading certificate is sent to the homeowner and then the homeowner is able to proceed with landscaping the property.
