Finished grade

Finished grade refers to the final level or surface of a piece of land or a construction project after all necessary work has been completed. It represents the desired elevation and contour of the land or structure. The finished grade is established based on design specifications and requirements. This can include shaping the land, adding or removing soil, compacting the soil, and leveling the surface. The purpose of achieving a finished grade is to ensure proper drainage, stability, and functionality of the land or structure.
