Customized Earthwork Solutions

Depending on the type of project you have, it is important to have a foundation and earth that is professionally prepared for planting and construction. It affects the quality of projects and their longevity. We provide all the services required to cover your ground. This includes:

  • Clearing
  • Excavation
  • Leveling
  • Creating solid foundation

We have experience in hardscape and softscape installation and construction and understand the impact of solid preparations on longevity. We handle all types of earthwork and site preparation works for residential and commercial projects.

Proper Timing for Earthwork

Earthwork is typically recommended during the dry season. Our experienced crew will use front end loaders and backhoes to perform earthwork. It is recommended to have earthwork and soil preparation done simultaneously, as the equipment is on site.

Many times, our clients require our earthwork services because the site has been left in poor shape for softscapes due to construction activities. The problems can include:

  • Compacted soil
  • Lack of topsoil
  • Erosion

Soil Decompaction

As already mentioned, site soils can get compacted by construction activities. This can either be a side effect of the activities or as a requirement. Our grading crew can effectively de-compact the soil. Usually, the soil is de-compacted to a minimum depth of 12 inches.

During the earthwork phase, we can place large stumps and logs as habitat features. We can do this using a backhoe, thus reducing the work for the planting crews. Planting crews usually do not have the equipment or capacity to move large woody debris. Soil decompaction needs to be completed before the planting crew can get to work. Even when the planting crew has the equipment for the job, it would not be possible to drive heavy machinery on the site after the soil has been prepared.

If you need earthwork services for a softscaping project, it is recommended to have a detailed weed control program, to begin with. Most earth sites are likely to have some weed issues. So initial weed control measures should be taken from the beginning and included in the ongoing maintenance program.
