Septic Systems

Most homeowners are far less interested in what lies beneath the ground than in the home that stands on it. Farm & Home Excavating is your Septic System expert, so that you don’t have to be. Local to Howard County, we are certified by our surrounding counties and by Maryland State to handle all types of septic system installation, inspection, and repair.

Because we have decades of expertise in the site work industry, we know exactly what needs to happen in your soil for a septic system to function properly. Environmental recommendations, while important, are not always easily managed. Sometimes we’ll see homeowners with very tight lots install complicated septic systems that require high level installation and maintenance. Having built our reputation on quality, communication, and trust in all areas or earth work, you can rely on us to get your septic system installed and working.

We handle

  • Septic Systems for New Homes
  • Septic System Installation
  • Septic System Inspection
  • Sand Mound
  • Drip Systems
  • LPD Systems
  • All types of Septic System Repair

On the repair side, we can handle your whole job from start to finish. Not only will we fix your system, we will haul away the excess dirt, we will do the grading, and we will do the seeding. When Farm & Home Excavating is on a job, you can trust us never to leave you with a mess to clean up. No one likes a ravaged landscape after septic installation or repairs, so rest assured that we will leave your soil arranged, and the grass ready to grow. We are truly a one-stop shop.

To head off potential problems, you want to maintain your septic system just as you would maintain your home. Wasting water and tree roots are the primary killers of septic systems, so you want to be mindful of your water usage and landscaping. Helpful tips include

  • Have your tank pumped and inspected every 3 years
  • Conserve water
  • Don’t plant trees on top of septic tanks
