Site Preparation Services in Encinitas, Leucadia, and Other Nearby Cities, Including Soil Import/Export, Compaction, Grading, Concrete Flatwork & Asphalt Paving

When it comes to any new construction or remodeling project, it is critical to ensure that the site has been properly prepared. Before you start digging the footings, you'll want to be sure that the soil has the proper composition and meets compaction testing. If not, the ground could settle over time leading to cracks in the foundation, a sagging roof, and other major problems. In addition, the site needs to be correctly graded to match the engineering plans. At Hidden Valley Backhoe, we're able to handle the variety of earthmoving work that is required to prepare a site for construction. This includes concrete and asphalt demolition (including structural demolition), hauling, soil import/export, rough grading, finish grading, trenching, utility installation, soil compaction, asphalt paving, and concrete work. Since 1999, we've successfully completed thousands of projects for homeowners, businesses, and general contractors throughout San Diego County. Call today to schedule a free on-site consultation for any of our backhoe services in Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, and beyond. All of our work is done to code.
