Land & Property Surveys

What is a Land Only Survey?  Land Surveying allows you to understand your land boundaries. A survey is performed in order to locate, describe, monument, and map the boundaries and corners of a parcel of land. It might also include the topography of the parcel, and the location of buildings and other improvements made to the parcel.

Knowing the topography, or the natural and artificial features, of your land is an important part of land ownership, real estate, and construction planning.
