Types of Excavation Projects

The following are a few of the types of excavation projects that we do. Our state of the art equipment can make fast work of many excavating projects.

Trench Excavation

Trench excavation is done when the length of the area to be excavated needs to exceed the depth of it. It’s typically used to install sewer systems or bury services in the ground.

Drainage Excavation

Proper drainage on a property helps ensure that water is funneled away from certain areas such as infrastructure, agriculture and areas where water can be harmful. An excavation project where the purpose is improving drainage, often involves creating ditches, trenches or other structures to help facilitate an optimal drainage path. We often see properties that experience complications due to poor drainage. This can lead to a buildup of stagnant water in a yard which can result in the following issues.

  • Muddy and waterlogged portions of the grass
  • An increase in mosquitoes and other pests attracted to the water
  • Damage to nearby walkways or structures

Basement Excavation

When new properties are built in New England a basement is often created. This involves an excavation process where the dirt is removed and taken offsite.

Earth Excavation

When soil is removed (below the topsoil) this is referred to as earth excavation. It can be performed in order to create a structural foundation (such as building a basement), creating a drainage ditch or doing any other project where earth needs to be removed below the topsoil.

Rock Excavation

We often perform rock excavation when rocky surfaces impede construction or cause some other issue.

Topsoil Excavation

Unlike earth excavation which occurs below the topsoil, topsoil excavation involves removing the upper level of soil and the vegetation on top of it.

Foundation Repair

In some instances foundation excavation is necessary in order to gain access to do foundation repairs. If a basement foundation has structural issues it’s sometimes necessary to excavate the earth next to the foundation in order to perform a repair.

Mac Bellingrath and his team transformed our property within budget while staying within our requested time frame. We found this company on line after a couple missteps with other local landscapers who seemed disinterested and overpriced. Mac responded to our call promptly on a Sunday morning and met with us that same day. He listened to our concerns regarding our admittedly overgrown, tired, weedy property.

Mac collaborated with us and shared his own vision to transform and beautify our modest yard. He incorporated our ideas with his awesome design concept. They mulched, edged and removed poison ivy, and saplings. The team removed dead/diseased bushes and two ugly trees and relaced them with gorgeous hemlock bushes, a Japanese maple , ornamental grasses, hibiscus plants …We were especially pleased and surprised that he chose the lavender plants that we love.
