- Earthworks

Earthworks refers to the large scale excavation, alteration and modification of land for a specific new purpose using heavy equipment.


Some of the important considerations at this stage include:

Shape – Will the physical shape of the proposed surface fit efficiently into the existing environment,
              at the right angle, without obstacles in the way of users and spectators?

Slope – Does the land provide for the speedy removal of excess rainfall or will modifications need to
             be made?
Sun – Do existing buildings and infrastructure impede sunlight? Will existing trees and other
          vegetation create unwanted shade or other environmental issues?
