Sand & Gravel

Unlike many other Montana excavators, we have access to our own sand & gravel making us faster and more cost-effective in meeting your needs.

Landscape Rocks

Landscape rocks can be an obligatory addition to a landscaping project, or it can be an aspired aspect of the overall look. Let us help you incorporate landscape rock in a way that enhances curb appeal.


Road construction requires planning, execution and a lot of thought regarding weather, drainage, sustainability and longevity.  Choose our talented staff for your road construction & excavation team!

Sewer & Waterlines

Water and sewage need to flow and flow properly.  No one in Western Montana has more experience with new construction excavation or repairs for sewer & waterlines.


Make the right investment in your biggest investment by choosing a trusted Missoula basement excavator who knows how to dig basements and provide for drainage in tough ground.

Snow Plowing

There are those winters where the parking lots fill up or a rural drive way becomes snowed in.  We aren’t afraid of the cold or a snow day.
