Different types of trenchers can be used and it all depends on the condition of the piece of land on which the service is carried out. We have the Chain trenchers, wheel trenchers, micro trenchers, portable trenchers, and our professionals know just the right ones to use to effectively carry out the service.


After a trench is dug, either for foundation laying purposes or to gain access to services, the hole that has been dug has to be covered. This is called backfilling. During this procedure, care has to be taken to ensure that the client’s needs are met and in the case that there was a driveway, sidewalk, or plant existing on the dug portion, we would always replace it. At the end of the day, what we want is for our clients to be very satisfied with the services we have rendered enough to want to recommend us to other parties.
