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!

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.

Shed Demolition And Removal

Shed Demolition And Removal (Prospect SA 5082)

I’ll be honest, this shed demolition and removal job turned out to be bigger than I originally thought. Turned out the shed was, well basically a shed within a shed. Completely decked out with insulation and inner wall for a teenage style retreat. Having kids myself (now all grown up thank god) I can relate with wanting to give them their own space away from the main house.

Backyard Patio Area Excavation

Backyard Patio Area Excavation (Angaston SA 5353)

On the backyard renovation wagon again today. This yard was not big at all and what space they did have was pretty much unusable for anything recreational. Too much of an awkward concrete jungle for such a small space in my opinion. But that’s exactly why they hired me. I’m a bit of an expert earthmover when it comes to preparing and transforming a yard in a short time.

Backyard Bobcat Services Gawler East

Backyard Retaining Wall (Gawler East SA 5118)

Check out this sloping backyard and you tell me what you can do with it in its current state? Pretty much nothing and that’s why this fella has hired me to make it a more useable and family friendly backyard. There is still always going to be a slight slope to the area unless a whole lot (and I mean a lot) of dirt is brought in, otherwise my job is to take the edge off and make it easy to maintain.

Front Yard Retaining Wall Earthmoving Services Barossa Valley

Front Yard Retaining Wall (Penrice SA 5353)

For families that have just had their new home built, I’ve notice it is pretty common to be left with what looks more like a ‘dumping site’ then what should actually be their front and back yards. Understandably, this is not always the builders responsibility and the home owners are aware they will need to sort out the Landscaping of their New Home themselves once the build is finished.

New Turf Preparation Excavation (Tanunda SA 5352)

The easiest thing you can do to give your yard and property a face lift is to put in new turf. To ensure you get the best results possible, the New Turf Preparation needs to be done correctly and that is exactly what I specalise in and what I completed recently for a great fella out at Tanunda. His yard actually turned out to be quite big after everything had been removed.

Property Subdivision Demolition (Willaston SA 5118)

Demo, dig, dump, clear and level! That is exactly what this excavation job was all about and what a massive job it turned out to be. This odd shaped block of land is tucked in between a couple of houses in a suburban area and is destined to be Subdivided by the owner and Developed into two beautiful new house sites. The only problem is it is full to the brim of concrete, debris, rubble and vegetation.

Shed Demoliton - Earthmoving Services

Shed Demolition & Site Leveling (Angaston SA 5353)

Another backyard renovation today and a big one at that. This was certainly one of those large yards that hadn’t been touched in years, was completely overgrown and would need a far few hours of work thrown at it to get the job down. The owner is looking at putting in a new large shed and therefore needed the area cleared, levelled and ready to go. This required the old run down shed to be completely demolished and removed.

Retaining Wall - Bobcat Services Hewett

Retaining Wall Excavation (Hewett SA 5118)

Just look at the difference a little bobcat work and earthmoving can do for a simple backyard renovation. Creates a total change in space, access and aesthetic appeal to the property. I’m sure even Rover (pictured) is happier now his playground is an even surface to run around on. This job today was located out at Hewett, one of my local stomping grounds, and I was asked to excavate their driveway.

New Sewer Trench Installation - Mini Excavator Services Barossa Valley

New Sewer Trench Installation (Greenock SA 5360)

A really nice fella just up the road from me was having big, big issues with his Septic Tank. After a bit of investigating we discovered not only was the Sewer Drainage Pipe blocked but it wasn’t configured in the best way. The initial connection position to the tank was not the correct layout and because of this he was only using about 30% of the tanks capacity. Yep a big problem indeed.

2-Tier Retaining Wall (Lyndock SA 5351)

What an awesome project this was to work on today and test my skill of visualizing the end result in an otherwise disastrous backyard. As you can see, it turned out to be a total transformation and the client couldn’t have been happier. The addition of a second level to the original single level retaining wall has created a more aesthetic and usable space to work on. I even convinced him of a better layout.

Driveway Levelling - Earthmoving Services Northern Adelaide

New Driveway Leveling (Gould Creek SA 5114)

Here’s a fantastic property out at Gould Creek, very large and rural and in need of some New Driveways as you can see from the pictures. These are the jobs I love, I get to use all my machines (Tipper, Excavator and Bobcat) and play in the dirt all day to give this rural property an awesome face lift. I think people often underestimate the difference a bit of professional excavation can really do for their properties.

Earthmoving Service Northern Adelaide - New House Excavations

New House Earthmoving Service (Hewett SA 5118)

I like to call this job ‘The Block 4’. Believe it or not, this started off with one earthmoving service job and from there the word of mouth from neighbour to neighbour of my excavating adventures from Lot 1 soon spread. When you’re having a New House built and need a reliable and trustworthy contractor, you should definitely give me a call. Building a new home should be an adventure.

Dam Earthmoving Services Adelaide

Dam Excavation (Greenock SA 5360)

This clients existing dam was in need of some Bobcat Services. Whilst it was still functioning and holding water, the sides were overgrown with vegetation that was creating uneven edges and slopes toward to the water. This was making it near impossible for the owner to maintain it on his own. So it’s a good thing he got in touch with me, because these jobs are the fun ones that I really enjoy!

Footings Clean Up Hewett - Bobcat Hire Adelaide

Site Clean Up & Dirt Removal (Hewett SA 5118)

I’m certainly equipped to conduct site clean ups and dirt removal with my Tipper and Bobcat Combo Hire. One particular new house construction in Hewett already had the Footings Excavation arranged by the builder, however they had over 100 ton of excess dirt to remove. Fast and efficient is how I work and even though my Tipper holds just 6 ton per load, I got the job done easily.

Retaining Wall Preparation - Mini Excavator Hire Angaston

Retaining Walls Preparation (Angaston SA 5353)

Out at Angaston preparing my clients backyard for retaining walls to be installed. The yard was like any other that I had been to a dozen times before and levelled out to change it into a drastically different area. Having an uneven yard really limits a home owners choices with how they can turn it into anything remotely recreational that doesn’t involve gardening, especially if you have kids to cater for.

Tiered Vegetable Garden - Earth Moving Adelaide

Tiered Vegetable Garden (Angaston SA 5353)

It was all about the Vegie Patch today and I couldn’t have been happier with how the restoration of this giant soon to be vegetable garden turned out. The client was astounded with my work, not only because of how the finished site looked but also the time it took me to complete it. Just a half days work with my Bobcat Hire and this overgrown, raggedy backyard is now screaming for some seeds to be planted.

Ari's Excavations Bobcat Services Adelaide - Shed Pad

Shed Pad Leveling (Roseworthy SA 5371)

Today’s client needed their Shed Pad prepped and leveled in lead up to having the cement slab laid. The hard fill had already been dropped off, so the task was by all means a standard and fairly quick job to complete using my skills as a Bobcat Operator. However, after a bit of a survey of the surrounding area outside of the shed, I noticed the surface was fairly uneven and that the recent rain had collected in puddles.
