Environmental Construction Services

Construction and maintenance projects can take a toll on our environment. It’s important to implement measures to mitigate the impact, and Farm & Home Excavating has the know-how and machinery to make that happen for site work relating to

  • New Home Construction
  • Clearing
  • Excavating
  • Grading
  • Driveways
  • Access Roads
  • Parking

Minimization of Natural Disturbance is an important element of environmentally friendly building practices. This applies in particular to pre-construction land clearing. We have a machine called the Right of Way Clearing Machine. It does not disturb the soil, and it can mulch up to 8 inch diameter trees. It’s an environmentally friendly way to clear land with low soil disturbance. This machine is particularly useful for soil conservation in Parks and Community Planning. Because it clears without disturbing the ground, you usually don’t need a permit for this type of site clearing. It’s an efficient practice that stays within MDE guidelines.

Stormwater Management protects water quality by reducing runoff, and it also helps to prevent flooding and drainage issues. This is another area where a proactive approach is essential, to ensure that the best possible Storm Drain Construction is put in place before the water rises. An early site consultation with Farm & Home Excavating can identify potential issues and prevent major drainage problems down the road. We install and service

  • Drywells (Residential and Commercial)
  • Disconnect Swales
  • Earth Dikes
  • Rip-rap Outfalls
  • Biopond Installation
  • Biopond Annual Maintenance
  • Bioswales
  • Retention Ponds
  • Sediment Ponds

Erosion Control is a cornerstone of solid construction and environmental maintenance. You want to be able to control the sediment around your project, or sediment may leave your site and create fines or stop work orders. Our work in this area includes:

  • Regular Silt fence
  • Super Silt fence
  • Water Diversion fence
  • Tree Protection fence
  • Earth Dikes
