Driveway Excavation

We can handle driveway excavation and renovations including building driveways from scratch, widening driveways, or creating extra parking spots for RVs and boats, for example. Our finishing materials for driveways can be your choice of gravel, concrete, or asphalt.

We can also handle drainage installation such as catch basins, trough drains, or a California catch basin.

If you need to clean up your existing driveway, we do driveway resurfacing as well.

Gravel & Concrete Removal

We make gravel and concrete removal easy for you!

We have a large concrete breaker that allows us to tackle the most grueling concrete removal jobs. We excavate, remove concrete, asphalt or gravel and load the truck to haul it away. All the concrete and asphalt we remove is recycled and new gravel is made from it, effectively minimizing environmental impact.

Landscaping Excavation

We provide a large number of excavation-related landscaping services. These include excavation and setup of water gardens, cisterns, water barrels and rainwater harvesting systems. We help the homeowner by doing all of the heavy lifting!

We can set grade and excavate for flowerbeds and trees, supply and place topsoil for flowerbeds or lawn, and remove stones using our rockhound.

Stump Removal

Pulling out stumps from hedges and trees is much too hard to do without the aid of heavy machinery and experience. We can do it for you.


On Christmas day we had a traumatic experience with our sewerage. Active Bobcat was recommended to us. They are extremely professional in their work ethic and dealing with their customers. The team is not only knowledgeable but courteous and friendly. We highly recommend this company to anyone requiring these services.
