dc.description.abstractLandform grading, as developed by Horst Schor and Donald Grey, provides a sustainable alternative to conventional grading. Mostly implemented in the Southwest, it has a history of reducing erosion, stormwater runoff, and landslide susceptibility. This thesis applies the tenets of landform grading to a site in Maggie Valley, NC to discover if landform grading will mitigate site issues in the Southeast. It explores the use of digital technology within the design process. Performance metrics, using ArcSWAT and a landslide susceptibility zonation map with bi-variate statistical analysis, were applied to the final landform grading and re vegetation plan. A projected decrease in erosion, stormwater runoff, and landslide susceptibility on site was found which may warrant further research into landform grading for the Southeast.
