FAQs on Excavation Services

Digging and excavation are both processes of removing earth, but they differ in scope and purpose. 

  • Digging is a simpler action involving the removal of soil or materials to create a hole or cavity, often on a smaller scale for activities like planting or trenching. 
  • Excavation is a broader and more systematic process involving the removal of larger quantities of soil or rock for construction, mining, or archaeological purposes. Excavation involves careful planning, engineering, and machinery to safely remove earth and create desired shapes or depths, often for foundations, basements, or large-scale projects. 

While both involve earth removal, excavation is a more complex and strategic process that serves a broader range of applications and demands a higher level of expertise and equipment.

Maintaining a drainage ditch is crucial to prevent flooding, erosion, and the accumulation of debris. Here’s a step-by-step guide to effectively maintain a drainage ditch:

  • Regular Inspection: Regularly inspect the ditch for signs of blockage, erosion, or sediment buildup. This will help you identify issues early and take prompt action.
  • Clear Debris: Remove leaves, branches, and other debris that may obstruct the flow of water. Use rakes, shovels, and other tools to clear the ditch.
  • Check for Erosion: Monitor the ditch for signs of erosion, such as uneven banks or soil displacement. Reinforce eroded areas with riprap, rocks, or vegetation to prevent further erosion.
  • Maintain Slope: Ensure that the ditch maintains a proper slope for efficient water flow. If the slope is compromised, regrade the ditch as needed.
  • Control Vegetation: Trim and manage vegetation along the ditch to prevent overgrowth that can hinder water flow.
  • Install Erosion Control Measures: If erosion is a concern, consider using erosion control blankets, geotextiles, or vegetation to stabilize the banks.
  • Prevent Sediment Accumulation: Install sediment control measures such as sediment basins or sediment traps to prevent sediment from entering the ditch.
  • Monitor Outlets: Check the outlets of the drainage ditch, ensuring they are clear and free from obstructions.
  • Address Invasive Plants: Remove invasive plant species that can clog the ditch and impede water flow.
  • Regular Maintenance Schedule: Establish a regular maintenance schedule to ensure that the drainage ditch is consistently inspected and cleared.
  • Consult Experts: If you’re unsure about maintenance techniques, consult with landscaping or drainage experts for guidance.

By following these steps, you can maintain a properly functioning drainage ditch that effectively manages water runoff and prevents potential issues.

Frequently Asked Questions on Septic Systems

During a septic system inspection, we will check the sludge and scum levels in the tank to determine if pumping is needed. We will also inspect the tank, pipes, and the drainfield for any signs of leaks or blockages. We might perform load tests to evaluate the drainfield’s absorption capacity. This comprehensive evaluation helps ensure that all components of the system are functioning correctly and efficiently.

Keeping records of your septic system maintenance, including pumping, inspections, and repairs, is crucial for several reasons. It helps you track the health of your system and schedule routine maintenance, which can prevent costly emergencies. These records are also valuable for future homeowners and can increase property value by proving that the system has been properly maintained.

Yes, landscaping choices can significantly affect your septic system. It’s important to choose plants with shallow root systems to avoid damage to your septic lines and drainfield. Avoid planting trees or shrubs near the septic system, as roots can grow into and clog or break the lines. Additionally, ensure that landscaping does not alter drainage patterns to prevent excess water from saturating the drainfield.

Using a garbage disposal can increase the amount of solids in your septic tank, which can lead to more frequent pumping requirements and potential blockages. If you use a garbage disposal, it’s crucial to choose one that is septic-safe and to use it sparingly. Adding a tank baffle or an effluent filter may also help reduce the impact of additional solids on your system.

Yes, using the right type of toilet paper is important for septic system health. Septic-safe toilet paper is designed to break down quickly when flushed, preventing the buildup of solids in your septic tank. It’s advisable to avoid thick, quilted toilet papers that take longer to decompose, as they can contribute to clogs and necessitate more frequent pumping.

    Russell is a true professional. You can't ask for a better person to do that task for you that you can't do. Even if I could do it, I would call Russell, because he treats your job as if it's his own and does a better job than I could ever do. His attention to detail, professionalism, and pride in his work shows. My driveway looks 10 times better, the entry wider, and depth of gravel perfect. I've used Russell for other jobs in the past, and like always, he's the best. Competitive prices, great work, and a great person to work with. Call RTF for all your outdoor needs, you won't regret it.

    Patricia Bloomquist
    I will definitely be recommending this business to others. He was professional and very friendly. Did exactly what I needed done. Repaired my broken septic top and riser. A landscape company had run over it and crushed it. Perfect and quick repair. Always stayed in touch and was always on time and worked until job was done. I needed my shed to be graded in due to a slope in the area. He filled and graveled it so that there will be no erosion and made it look great too. Spread a drive to it also. I will be calling him again for my future project...more excavation needs done. Highly recommend this company !Posted 2 before pictures an d 2 afters of the shed part..

    Chad Dillon
    RTF Landworks did a great job. They cleared an area approximately 25 x 100 feet of all roots and stumps to make it ready for paving. Very Professional. Highly recommended.
    Karen Ronnell
    Russell from RTF LandWorks came out and assessed our groundwater issue. We had water standing in our front yard after rain storms and it never seemed to dry. Russell quickly assessed the situation and recommended a few different options to correct the problem. Once I chose the option that best fit my needs Russell got to work right away. The job was completed quickly and he left no mess behind, he even reseeded the area with grass seed and put straw down. After the next rain storm our yard was dry as a bone! Great job!
