Safety should always be the highest priority. The last thing you want is a company who cuts corners, they tend to end up with problems down the road. Instead, tasks should be completed with efficiency and the highest safety standards. 

Licensing and Insurance 

Doing a little bit of research before hiring an excavation or earthwork service can save a lot of headaches down the road. Ensure the contractor you choose has the appropriate insurance and licensing. 

Equipment

Communication

The clearing of roots and stumps by grinding or digging. This typically requires heavy machinery such as dump trucks, bulldozer, scrapers, and compactors.

Stabilizing 

Equipment is used to stabilize the soil, eliminating any holes or air pockets that may be under the top layer of earth. 

Backfilling

Backfill is very important, it takes experience, a good understanding of specifications, heavy equipment, soil conditions and contract requirements. It also takes special precaution must also be taken around utility lines and ditches.
