Tank Pad Preparation Williamstown

Shed Pad, Tank Pad, Trenching & Demolition (Williamstown SA 5351)

Here's a property at Williamstown that is having some outdoor renovations done. The following pictures and work below were completed over a few days on separate occasions. The biggest difference is the new shed and 2 x 22,500L water tanks. My job was to do a little demolition, prepare the shed and tank pad as well as dig the trenching for power, water and sewage.

Backyard Clearance Angaston

Backyard Clearance – A Jungle No More (Angaston SA 5353)

I was called back out again to a previous clients property to help make their jungle of a backyard into a useable space for their kids to play. I think they were just hoping to be able to put a trampoline up at best given the state of the area. Their property is very hilly with lots of rocks among the surface. Not to worry though, I could see how I'd make this work for them.

Pool Fill In With Site Cut Elizabeth

Pool Fill In With Site Cut (Elizabeth SA 5112)

It's been quite some time since I did a Pool Fill In type excavation job and I thought it would be best to blog about the details of this recent one I did. Located in Elizabeth, my client was wanting to have this pool removed, filled, leveled and ready for turfing. If this sounds like your situation, I suggest you keep reading, because I saved my client thousands with this job.

New House Yard Level

New House Yard Leveled (Gawler SA 5118)

A new house definitely deserves a level (pardon the pun) playing field to start with. That's exactly what I was contracted to do by the owner of this house in Gawler recently. All the overgrown vegetation, weeds and tree stump needed to be removed and scraped back to start fresh. It's actually quite amazing how much bigger a space looks when it’s yard leveled!

Concrete Preparation - Dolomite Sand and Blue Metal Road Base

Concrete Preparation: Dolomite Sand & Blue Metal Road Base

Here's two different job sites that I've completed some concrete preparation on recently. Both are for new houses that have just been built and the owners are in the process of getting all the outer concreting done. It is definitely one of those big and expensive parts of building your own home and that is why it is paramount to have the preparation done professionally.

150T Backyard Dirt Removal Gawler East

150T Backyard Dirt Removal (Gawler East SA 5118)

This clients backyard was a whole meter (plus some) higher than the house and was not a flat surface at all. Pretty unusable if you ask me and really bad for rain run off. So they wanted this problem sorted out and to do that I had to do a massive backyard dirt removal task. I could see there was a lot of dirt to be taken away and likely more than the owners anticipated.

"Ari's Excavations did a full days work spreading sand in our horse arena, cleaning and leveling out the paddock areas. It would have taken me a week, but Ari completed it in an afternoon. He certainly knows his stuff."

Geoff - Angaston, Barossa Valley, Adelaide SA

"Ari’s skill as a Bobcat and Excavator Operator are amongst the best we have encounted. Because of his skill as an operator and his eye for levels, he is the only operator that I would leave on a job site unsupervised and know that when I returned, the job would be right."

Brad - Lyndock, Northern Adelaide SA

"We had Ari do some work for us on the weekend and we couldn't recommend him highly enough. He was prompt, worked hard and the price was very good also."

Tobby - Gawler, Northern Adelaide SA

"Ari is an excellent machine operator, he is reliable, prompt and easy to get along with. He is able to complete those jobs in very difficult situations with ease. We can highly recommend Ari."

Alan - Evanston, Northern Adelaide SA

"Ari came out to shift and level some dirt out the front of my house today. Arrived when he said he would, did a terrific job and his price was great. Definitely knows his stuff and was very friendly and professional. Highly recommend!"

Bobi - Tanunda, Barossa Valley, Adelaide SA

"I cannot recommend Ari highly enough - he's a great bloke and extremely easy to communicate with. Ari recently leveled my block and we could not be happier with his work. His a professional who demonstrated pride in delivering the best job for us in half the time frame others estimated."

Chris - Hewett, Northern Adelaide SA
