Excavating and digging

Our excavating and digging services are homeowner-centered. With a variety of excavation equipment, we can easily maneuver residential properties and gain access to your yard or wherever your digging needs are.

We offer excavation services in South Western Ontario using updated equipment for digging projects like foundations, property drainage, and drain tiles, as well as grading and slope stability. Our excavator ready to get your site and your project prepped, whether you’re putting in a driveway, sidewalks, retaining walls, or water features. Excavators and other heavy equipment are also very useful in simplifying and speeding up a variety of other installations.

 We understand that you, as a homeowner, need a capable excavator that is sized for compact operation. Our excavator is just that, plus it has offset boom operation, rubber tracks and a slew of other complicated engineering feats that make it the right choice for most residential landscape construction projects. Basically, this means that it can maneuver in tight spaces and tread lightly when it needs to.

Excavation Safety

We will NEVER bring in our machines and just start digging. We always identify underground utilities as a crucial first step in any excavation project. This is the only way to make certain where power lines, water lines, or gas lines may be buried underground and to ensure the safety of our crew and of course, you and your family!

Retaining Walls 

A retaining wall is required to elevate and plateau your property, while giving it shape and creating more usable space. Currently, Dig has been replacing a lot of rotten or degrading walls. Updating your old walls with new technology and good drainage will greatly extend stability and add value to your property.

Below are some examples of retaining walls we can help you with

Small Concrete Blocks

Although small modular blocks come in a wide variety of block shapes and textures, the most common varieties that you will see are the “Juniors” and “Jumbos”. Production companies like Allan Block, Pisa Stone, and Keystone, are produced locally and are a popular product for smaller land retention solutions. However, make no mistake that these highly engineered blocks are capable of serious retention when they are augmented with geogrid stabilizers.

Another huge bonus to modular block products is their ability to create compact curves for a more organic shaped landscape.

Timber retaining walls

Timber has and always will be a viable product for land retention. Our timber walls are always constructed with appropriate horizontal supports (aka “dead men”), double dip galvanized spiral spikes and perimeter drainage, making them worry free and long lasting. The proper installation of a pressure treated timber wall should offer up to a 30 year lifespan

Poured reinforced concrete walls

Poured and reinforced concrete covers a wide variety of applications from a simple street curb to a hydro-electric dam. It’s a perfect long lasting engineered structure for land retention and so is often used as a foundation for residential homes.

This is a premium product for retaining walls when one considers the options, primarily for the experienced labour, and specialized tools that are required to build, transport and finish this product correctly.
