Residential Excavation Companies Near You

Earth Moving Contractors In Your Area

A lot of renovation projects begin underground. Everything from plumbing repair to installing a new irrigation system needs excavation. Even driveway repair and building your backyard deck starts below the surface. Digging into the area for your new fixture makes it longer-lasting, better protected, and more integrated with the design and other features of your home.

But digging into the ground yourself or with unlicensed excavation contractors is dangerous. There are power lines below the soil and usually a water line that runs under your yard from the underground shut-off valve. Excavation services in your area know how to avoid fragile utility lines. They can also excavate without disturbing your foundation or unaffected landscaping. Many cities and homeowner associations require permits before large additions and excavators who work in your area will know the local regulations.

When you need part of your property excavated, find local experts who can get it done. Type in your zip code and HomeAdvisor will connect you with pre-screened excavation services near you.


"Dominion Hardscapes did an amazing job installing stone walkways around our home and pool house . Rick worked with us on selections and offered design ideas that were both ascetically pleasing and functional--improving the natural beauty of our home. The result was beautiful and has since garnered us many compliments . They were a professional team, communicating well, and leaving the area spotless. We will definitely be using them for all of our landscape/hardscape needs. I highly recommend this company."

"Jose and his crew were great. He not only did the drainage grading we needed, he had connections to install asphalt on the driveway. He also connected us with a person to take care of a retaining wall issue we had. Everything was done within schedule, even with my "scope creep"."

"I had another contractor with a Bobcat scheduled but he backed out at the last second. I called Kenneth at A&E and told him of my dilemma and that I was on a tight schedule. He bumped me ahead of another job and got what I needed done in time to start the project. Job well done!"

"Forever Spring Construction and Landscaping built a beautiful patio for us ahead of time and on budget. We couldn't be happier with the friendly and professional service that we received. Winston was great to work with and made sure that we were satisfied in every respect with the design and build of the patio. We gave him a very compressed time frame for the work as we needed the patio to be done for a wedding reception, and we feared that like most contractors we have hired in the past, he wouldn't be able to deliver what he promised in the time frame he promised it. I shouldn't have worried. Winston and his team delivered everything he promised and he did it a day faster than he had promised it. And then he did something I've never had a contractor do before, he did more than what was promised by seeding new grass in areas that had been trampled and handling landscaping aspects that he had expected to have to handle ourselves. All that for the price he had bid, which was well below the other bids that we had received. I don't normally write reviews, but I am so pleased with Winston and his very professional and courteous team, I just had to write this one. I couldn't recommend Forever Spring Construction more highly."
