I live here in the Southwest (NM) and I have been noticing here that many stucco homes have the stucco plastered all the way to grade level and below. Both my parents home and a friend of mine is this way plus the surrounding neighbors. I know that the stucco should be 8 inches above grade. Does anyone have any idea of why this would be done here other than just poor stucco work?
