Are you thinking about getting some work done to your property, but you’re not really sure what’s going to be involved? Excavation is vital for creating the foundation for any project. It’s not a step that can be looked over or a spot to cut corners. Depending on what needs to be done, your contractor will need a backhoe or a bucket loader. The bigger the project, the bigger the machine(s) will be to handle the project. It’s not typically a one-man job and can be even more of a headache if you don’t know what you’re doing.

What is excavation?

When you get something excavated at your home or on your commercial property, what’s happening is dirt and rocks are being moved or removed. It’s creating a space for whatever construction work needs to happen. The excavation also includes grading the land, digging holes, and leveling the ground for projects like:

  • Landscaping
  • Foundations
  • Sewer and pipelines
  • Drainage
  • Roads, sidewalks, and driveways



Some form of excavation needs to happen before those types of projects can begin.

Why is it essential for your project?

For any construction work, the ground needs to level for a solid foundation. Uneven ground can cause issues with the build later on. The building will also have structural impurities immediately, making it vulnerable to daily use. For digging out French drains, utilities, and other projects, excavating can create an area big enough to properly install what’s needed without damaging what’s already underground.
