Full Service Site Devopment

We start with land clearing, grading and excavating while implementing erosion control. We continue with clearing and installation of underground utilities. The finishing touches include asphalt paving, and road building. From clearing to final grade, Burns Excavation is outfitted to handle whatever you are needing to build.

Land Clearing & Grading

Our land clearing process consists of clearing the site down to the ground level so we may begin grading. Grading is the act of leveling or smoothing any particular soil base in preparation for construction projects, landscaping, or road building. We also grade the land around the house, remove large rocks and smooth the soil.


Whether it be a stick-built or modular home. We can excavate for any type of foundation. Our process consists of clearing the land, framing the area desired. Following that we grade and level the land to the correct form, excavate what is needed and then lay the foundation.

Clearing, Logging, and Hauling

Does your site require land clearing? Do you have many trees on your land? Have no fear, we are equipped to log and haul them off to prepare the site for development.


Poor drainage will cause obvious problems such as foul odor, insects, standing water, diseased or dying plants, mud, and ruined turf. Planning and installing proper drainage will prevent these problems, especially during storms and rainy seasons. Types of drainage we have excavated with include Side house drainage, septic drainage, water collection drainage

Road Building

We build gravel roads in a way that keeps your land clear and clean by making sure the drainage of the road is carefully considered. Improper grader use can actually damage the road, so using the correct technique is essential and often best left to professionals!


Our septic team has installed a large range of septic systems, there is no septic that we can’t handle. Our process is quite simple, measure the septic and then excavate accordingly.
