What is Earthwork & Grading?
Earthwork and grading is the process of preparing a site for construction by reshaping, leveling, and compacting the soil. One major benefit of earthwork and grading is improving water drainage and preventing damage to their homes from water pooling. Uneven land prevents proper water 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. Part of the reason land grading can improve plant health is water drainage issues. 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.

Seguin or Séguín is a French and Gascon name. It may be a Frankish name, from Germanic origin (sig-, that is, "victory", cf. modern German sieg, and -win, that is, "friend", related to modern English "win"). Seghin, Sigiwinus, Siguvinus, Siguinus, Siguin, Sigiwin, Sigwin, Sigoin and Segouin are alternate variants. According to Jean de Jaurgain quoting primary source Saint Andrew of Bordeaux, the original Vascon name written in Latin was Sihiminum, related to Basque Seme(no), meaning 'son' (cf. ancient Aquitanian Basque "seni" meaning 'boy' > modern "sehi"). It is also spelled Scimin, Skimin, Scemenus, Semen, Semeno, Xemen, or Ximen and gave rise to the Castilian Ximeno and Jimeno. Both Semen and Seguin, unrelated names, are found in sources.
