FAQs on Excavation Services

The two main types of excavation are open excavation and trench excavation.

  • Open Excavation: Open excavation involves removing large quantities of soil or rock to create a hole or open area for various purposes, such as building foundations, road construction, or landscaping. It is often used for projects that require significant earthmoving and shaping of the terrain.
  • Trench Excavation: Trench excavation is a narrower and deeper type of excavation typically used for installing utility lines, pipelines, cables, or conduits. Trenches are usually long and narrow, with a specific depth and width designed to accommodate the infrastructure being installed.

Both types of excavation require careful planning, adherence to safety regulations, and the use of appropriate machinery and equipment. Proper soil analysis, slope stability assessment, and site preparation are essential for successful excavation projects, ensuring structural integrity and safety throughout the process.

Erosion control strategies can be broadly categorized into two main groups: structural erosion control and vegetative erosion control.

  • Structural Erosion Control: This category involves the use of physical structures and engineering solutions to prevent or reduce soil erosion. Techniques include the installation of retaining walls, silt fences, check dams, erosion control blankets, and geotextiles. These structures are designed to break the force of water, slow its flow, and trap sediment to prevent erosion.
  • Vegetative Erosion Control: This approach utilizes plants and vegetation to mitigate erosion. Vegetation stabilizes the soil with root systems, reduces the impact of raindrops, and slows water flow. Techniques like planting grass, shrubs, trees, and ground cover, along with creating buffer zones along water bodies, are common methods of vegetative erosion control.

Combining both structural and vegetative erosion control measures in a comprehensive erosion control plan provides an effective defense against soil erosion, safeguards landscapes, and preserves natural habitats. Proper selection and implementation of erosion control methods depend on factors such as the severity of erosion, site conditions, and environmental considerations.

Frequently Asked Questions on Septic Systems

The size of your household directly influences the load on your septic system. More residents mean more water usage and waste generation, which can strain the system and require more frequent pumping and maintenance. It’s important to consider household size when designing a septic system and to adjust maintenance schedules accordingly to prevent system overload.

If you notice a foul odor emanating from your septic system, it could be a sign of a tank that needs to be pumped, a blockage in the system, or a failure in the drainfield. It’s important to contact us immediately to diagnose and resolve the issue. Ignoring such odors can lead to more severe problems, including health hazards and environmental pollution.

Driving or parking vehicles over your septic system is not recommended as it can compact the soil and potentially damage the pipes and tank. This compaction can also impair the drainfield’s ability to absorb and filter effluent, leading to system failure. Always keep heavy equipment and vehicles clear of the area designated for your septic system.

Climate and weather conditions can have significant effects on the function of your septic system. For instance, excessive rainfall can oversaturate the drainfield, impeding its ability to process and filter wastewater effectively. Conversely, extremely dry conditions can affect the soil’s absorption capacity. Seasonal care, like ensuring proper drainage and possibly adding insulation during cold weather, can help mitigate these issues.

Neglecting septic system maintenance can lead to several serious issues, including sewage backups into the home, which pose significant health risks. It can also result in the failure of the drainfield, necessitating expensive repairs or complete system replacement. Environmental contamination can also occur, affecting local waterways and wildlife. Regular maintenance not only prevents these problems but also extends the life of your septic system and ensures it operates efficiently.

    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!
    Lori Davis-Furr
