Earthwork and excavation naturally require some disruption in your yard. After all, dirt is messy! At Reynolds Contracting, we take extra care to protect existing landscaping and hardscaping features whenever we dig. On a recent job, we successfully installed new downspout drainpipes, while keeping the root system of the trees intact.
Air knife excavation is a safe way to remove soil and rocks from anything potentially fragile underground. Using pressurized air, we gently break up soil and rocks around roots, utilities, and other obstacles. Here, we cleared dirt and rock away from a tree’s root system in order to place a pipe underneath the roots. If we dug through these roots, the tree would suffer, or maybe die, with such great damage to its roots. With the precision of the air knife, we can dig exactly where we need to, without unnecessary damage or destruction.
In a variety of applications, air knife excavation is very powerful. We can dig deeply, making small trenches without the use of big, heavy equipment. The air knife tool is simply attached to a towable, high-volume air compressor. Excavators and backhoes work quickly but can’t navigate around obstacles as easily or dig as narrowly as the air knife. Hand-digging with a shovel is another useful option in some cases, but can be very labor intensive while possibly not as powerful or precise as the air knife.
When we consider the best techniques to complete your project, we look at the complete picture. We take extra care to protect your entire investment, all the way down to the roots of your landscaping. Air knife excavation allows us to dig precisely and powerfully, using over 30 years of experience in excavation and landscaping. Call us today 434-293-6724 for an estimate!
