We are a trenching and excavating company that handles new construction, but our specialty is working on existing properties. Our careful excavation protects your property and the finished job is meticulously graded. 

Notice the pool excavation in the photo on the upper left. The land surrounding the pool was barely touched. The removed dirt was placed in the rear of the yard next to the wooded area, not on the lawn. When needed, we place plywood on the lawn to prevent damage. Many excavating companies do what is necessary to complete the job and get paid. We are an  excavating contractor that does what is necessary to give you a good job with no problems or hassles. We operate at a high standard and will not let you down.

"I've had a lot of experience with excavators and they can do thousands of dollars worth of damage. I think you are a unique excavator...you really care about what you do to the surface, with very limited damage considering the machine you had in there.  That was awesome... Really nice job. Looks beautiful."

"More important even than the exceptional quality of your work has been the kind spirit of mentorship with which you have continually offered us advice throughout various stages of the project.  From the building of the knee walls in the basement to the final grading for the front porch, to the design of the driveway, Kerry and I have relied upon your experience and gracious advice to make important decisions on what we envision as our forever home.  We couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”
