    A few years ago I moved to a new house. One of my side yards was sloped quite a bit, going down to a creek. I also had a backyard that was quite rutted and unsuitable for family games. In the spring of 2020 our road was getting paved, which involved lots of extra "free" dirt being moved out of the area. I had at least 15-20 dump trucks of dirt dumped on my property. My plans were to build a retaining wall in one section and grade and reseed parts of my property. I was planning to move the dirt myself to save some dollars. However, this would have taken me three weeks or more to do because of all the roots and debris that had to be cleared. I ended up hiring Rob and in a matter of just a couple days he moved the dirt around for me and also tilled it smooth several times. All I had to do was seed the lawn and cover it with straw. For this project he worked around my time schedule the best he could. As he moved the dirt around, my family was removing roots and debris. Rob had the tools and the knowledge to help me create a more usable lawn and make it look so much better than if I would have tackled this project on my own. His price was very reasonable and fair. If I would have tried to rent similar machines to do the project myself it would have cost me more and taken longer. My sons were also grateful that I spared them many weeks of work. If I had a future project, I would not hesitate to hire Rob again

    It went very well. They were the only company we talked to that was willing to take the process one step at a time. The other two companies immediately wanted to do piering of the walls. As it turned out, the structure was fine and we didn't need any piering. We couldn't have known that until the wall was dug out and taking it step by step allowed us to save tens of thousands of dollars. I would hire this company again in a heartbeat and have already recommended their services

    John - the lead man was very professional with the job and his team. They got all the work done exactly the way they said they would when he estimated & diagnosed the problem.

  • Busscher's Septic Tank & Excavating Service, Inc
    5.0
    They did a very high quality job, with minimal collateral damage to landscaping. They were great to work with, though we had some misfires on when the job could get done. But I believe that was due more to the fact that excavation companies have been super busy in our area. These folks couldn't be nicer. And really exceeded my expectations in the final execution. I would highly recommend them

    Our 1st time using them and it couldn't have been better. Called on Friday and he was here Monday morning. Nate was very professional, discussed the project with me straightforwardly, and cautioned me about encroaching vegetation. I will use them again.

    The office person was very helpful, they guys arrived when they said they would, called first like I asked, and answered my wife's questions very well. they were neat in burying the tanks back up after they were done. I will deal with them again, and would recommend them!

    Performed work very well, stayed well after 5pm to make sure the job was done. Stayed on budget with their quote despite our backyard being a very tight space.

    This company was very prompt in responding to my email, and then came out to give us an estimate. Their bid was very fair, but they told us they would not be able to do any of the landscape themselves but could give us references for that part of the job. We ended up going with a company who could do the entire project

    We were very happy with them. They were professional and quick to respond. They were here when they said that they would be here. We had one little problem where it sank a little lower than where it was supposed to and they fixed that right away. I asked them to write it in that if there was going to be another problem then they would come out and fix it as part of the deal. They said that they would as a sure thing and that there was no problem in doing that. They were very easy to work with. They were very co-operative and efficient. We had no complaints. They wrote what happened to go wrong and that they would come back if there was any other problem. So, we were happy. It got bunched in with the other things and so, I don't know the exact price but I think that they were reasonable. They seemed fair and reasonable. They dug a hole and filled it. The quality of their work was very good and so was their responsiveness. Their punctuality was excellent. Their professionalism was very good
