Land clearing and excavation is a vital part of construction projects throughout Central Florida. No matter what type of project you have in the works, a new business, housing community, parking lot, or a residential home, the land will need to be cleared and prepared before construction starts. 

Typically land clearing is when trees, brush, debris, and top soil is removed before a project begins. But there is much more to the process. Which is why it’s important to have an experienced team with the proper equipment, and the highest quality of work. After all, you can’t build a great building on a weak foundation. 

Why Does Just About Every Building Project Need Excavation and Site Clearing

It may sound pretty straight forward, but there is a lot that goes into clearing a piece of property. For instance, water run off and drainage. Removing all the trees and rocks, then flattening out the soil for houses and a playground, easy enough. But what happens when it rains every afternoon, it becomes one big mud puddle. Central Florida has an array of terrains and different soil types. All these factors go into clearing the land, along with a good understanding of excavation. 

Green Space Conservation 

More and more builders, architects, and developers are retaining some of the trees for a natural green space. They add aesthetics and provide shade for walking paths, parks, and playgrounds. Protecting a variety of trees and giving them a spacious berth.

Orlando/Kissimmee Excavation, Landclearing, Paving

You drive along a road, into a parking lot, park, walk across a path into a building or home, the ground is secure and solid. The ground beneath is supporting heavy vehicle, equipment, and buildings. Excavation makes this all possible. 

The weight of any construction project has an impact on the ground. Proper excavation is what ensures the ground will support all the weight. It is a process more detailed than one would imagine. 

Breaking Ground

To start the excavation process, all existing structures, rocks, and trees must be removed.  Here in Central Florida this can even mean hazardous debris. This doesn’t mean everything has to go, natural geological hills and healthy trees can be preserved. 

Not only what is above the surface, but also what’s below, including some topsoil. Digging holes for foundations and roads. 

Time for Construction

To ensure the ground will support anything constructed on it, this means removing and adding materials.  Not all dirt is the same, they react differently when compacted. It takes precise and scientific calculations to support the construction. Which is why also why geological and civil engineers inspect the stability of the site.

Excavation also creates the right drainage on the property. Which is vital here in Central Florida. 


A trench is dug for the placement of the building’s foundation, sewage and water pipes, along with other building related functions. The depth of these specific excavated spaces typically exceeds their width. 

Trenches require designated equipment and a protective system in place, since they can be hazardous. 

A professional excavation service is not only responsible for the integrity of the site, but also the surrounding areas.
