Hi all, this is my first post! I'm thinking about reshaping my driveway a bit. The trickiest thing that I need to ask about is that I want to take a 'crown' out of the driveway, but that would require a bit of soil removal right next to the house. It is a daylight basement, and this is the 'dark' side, so I should be way above the slab (only removing a foot or two and I'm about 6-8 feet above the slab to start). See attachment, street is the bottom, backyard is the top. The red stripe is the high point, tapering on either side. the blue box is all the services (gas below, all wiring aerial), so I'll have to get them carefully marked and dig extra careful, but aside from the services, is there an issue doing this regrading (soil removal) right next to the house? 1968 stick build, FWIW.
