Land Clearing

Our machines are able to clear thick brush and trees up to 8". After we grind or clear, the land is not torn up since our machines mulch everything. Over-grown fields, pastures and wooded areas for trails are some examples of land we can clear.


Roll-Off Dumpsters

Whatever your need for a roll-off dumpster, we have the ability to place one where necessary and protect the landscape at the same time!



We can assist you in fixing any drainage issues you may be having on your property.



From barns and homes of any size to large industrial buildings, we are able to take on the job of demolishing a structure in the correct manner.


Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are a functional and attractive solution to unstable and sloped terrain. They are used to hold back hillsides and help prevent soil erosion and land slides. Retaining walls also create more useful areas for everything from patios, paths, and driveways, to roads, parking lots, or any construction which requires a flat surface. We offer a variety of products including Redi Rock to fit residential and commercial needs.


We offer trucking in various forms, whatever your need.


Dirt Work

We have equipment for any dirt work project which needs tackling. From digging holes and trenches in dirt or concrete, to grading driveways and moving loads of dirt. We have GPS systems on our excavators and Dozers to make exact cuts. Some of our recently-finished larger commercial work includes Signal Mill downtown, Chuy's Hamilton Place, Middle Valley Middle School, and Autozone in Hixson, as well as numerous residential and sub-division projects.

Snow & Ice Removal

We are equipped to handle all your snow removal and de-icing needs no matter the size. We have services subdivisions, restaurants, gas stations, Hamilton Place Mall, Home Depot, Lowe's, Kohl's, and other area businesses.



Hydro-seeding is a fast, cost-effective (less than 1/4 the expense of using sod) way to have lush, green grass. In a few weeks, there will be a better-appearing lawn, with no need to worry if the sod will take. We do many residential and commercial grounds.


Crushed Concrete

Crushed concrete is a great recycled alternative to gravel. Parking lots and concrete building demos go through the crusher for smaller debris and economic hauling off material. Use as base to driveways, pads, etc.


Sifted Top Soil 

Our enclosed dirt barn houses and keeps dry loads of red dirt, compost, unsifted, sifted, and amended top soils. Throughout the year we can supply your needs for soil. Picked up or delivered.  



We have the equipment to chip and mulch up all size trees and shrubs to make clearing and hauling easier on the job site!
