  1. 1. Clearing and Grubbing- This is carried out before the actual excavation work begins. It involves stripping the land of undergrowth, stumps, trees and shrubs.
  2. 2. Rough Grading– When we finish the grubbing and clearing task, there will be some places that need filling while other sections of the land will be too high and need cutting the soil down. The process of cutting and filling the land prior to construction is called rough grading. Excavation begins by cutting down the areas that are too high and moving that material to the areas which are too low. This material is tracked down with a bulldozer to ensure compaction or firmness.
  3. Trench Excavation– Trench excavation is used primarily to dig ditches for the placement of underground utilities (water line, storm drain pipe or sewer drain), these are placed into the trench, then covered and compacted so that the area is all even and smooth without dips and bumps. Open trenches can be used to divert water away from buildings and toward a designated area to avoid flooding or erosion. We prepare compacts building pads for foundations, basements, parking lots, driveways and about every surface that is developed. This is accomplished with the use of heavy equipment like bulldozers, compactors and rollers.
