Focusing on the Customer Experience

We’re different from other excavation companies. We focus on you, the customer. We’ll arrive on time, properly assess your needs and job scope, and find the right solution. Our crews are the best around, and they won’t stop until your job is done correctly, professionally, and to the highest industry standards.

As Jennifer, one of our general excavation customers, says:

“What a great company and an even better group of guys. Communication was great, they set a date and were able to arrive two days early. Worked efficiently and respectfully. I’ll be using them again in the near future.”

If you need to grade, dig, push, haul, prep, or demo it, you can count on us to do it right the first time.

General Excavating Services

Full-Service Site Prep

We offer full-service site prep during the excavation phase of building and construction projects.


We level the area for the building, parking area, and driveway and dig for a basement or crawl space if needed. Our laser-leveled pads create a solid and long-lasting foundation for your building, storage shed, play set, or drive. We install retention ponds and reconfigure slopes and ditches to contain and control water.


We bring in fresh materials to ensure there won’t be any surprises in the future. This includes all fill material needed for the building site and stone for parking areas and driveways.


The compaction of fill material ensures everything is compressed and stable. Fill is compacted in 6-inch lifts to avoid settling after the site is on grade.

Site Material

There are several different options for bases on pole barns and steel buildings. One we commonly use is the 22A Gravel Finish. This is a mix of clay, sand, and gravel, and it makes for a very stable base.

Septic Systems

If you have restrooms in the building but aren’t connected to the city sewer system, we will install a septic system. If your building needs to be connected to city sewer, we do those connections as well.


Trenching is used to channel water away from the building and other structures.

Final Grade

When your building is finished and you don’t want your property to look like a worksite anymore, we give it a final grade. We bring back the topsoil and level everything off.

Soil Conditioning

If necessary, we can prep your topsoil for grass seed. This puts a precise and fine finish on all disturbed areas.
