Dirt excavation and grading are essential for various construction projects and for landscaping projects. The primary role of dirt work is to stabilize the soil for building, remove debris, grade for proper drainage, prevent erosion, and create desired landscaping. Our process at Southern Dirt & Land most often begins with an initial site assessment, determining the necessary process for your specific project. Then we roll in the equipment to do the heavy lifting, and begin removing unwanted materials, and moving and removing excess soil. After the initial excavation, compaction, grading and sloping are accomplished to level the land and create the desired slope and elevation. Grading not only ensures a level and solid building site, but it is also the way through which proper drainage and erosion control are achieved.
We get a lot of questions about the benefits of using a professional excavation contractor. Excavation and grading require a high level of experience and expertise to properly create a strong foundation for building and for properly creating landscaping contours. A professional excavation company in Collierville, TN and beyond will also be well-versed in local regulations and building codes, ensuring your project will start with a durable foundation that adheres to building code.
Southern Dirt & Land uses a tried and true process to ensure that your project goes smoothly, is completed on time, and is finished with the highest quality workmanship. Any successful excavation process must begin with an in-depth initial assessment to determine potential obstacles, address soil stability, and analyze compaction capacity. Conducting this assessment ensures that our team at Southern Dirt & Land will give you an accurate quote, have a viable plan for the project, and will be completed in the stated time frame. We begin with a site analysis to plan for challenges that will require navigation, such as uneven or hilly terrain, steep slopes, waterways, vegetation, and existing structures. Next, we evaluate the soil characteristics and composition to determine its load-bearing capacity, determine how well it will settle after compaction, and identify unsuitable soil that needs to be removed and replaced. From here we create a plan for the excavation and grading project, ensuring we address all the challenges. Our only objective is to create a final product that will be durable and stable with the correct slope, elevation, and compaction.

Teyton is very professional and hard working. Done an excellent job laying sod for us today. If you need a professional job done, call Teyton.
We had Teyton clear land, install drains and lay sod at our house. We are so happy with the work he did. He was always on time, great communication and did exceptional work. We even added on finishing our driveway because he did such a great job. We would definitely use Southern Dirt again and highly recommend him.
I had Teyton Cloar from southerndirt.net come out and clear brush at the farm today. I couldn't be more happy and satisfied. Will definitely be having him back for more!
Teyton came out to install a French drain at my house recently. He showed up on time and with the proper tools for the job. He completed the job in a timely manner and was fair priced. I was very pleased.

A huge shout out and thank you to Teyton! We had a lot of tree damage in March tornado including one massive 50+ year old tree that fell and ripped up our concrete driveway. The root ball was huge and Teyton and his skid steer successfully got it pulled up and carried off for us. It took a few tries, a chain saw and some chains but he never gave up. He also cleaned up some other fallen trees and logs for us.
He came quickly after I called him and the price was very reasonable. He had previously built us a couple retaining walls. Would definitely recommend him and plan to use him again soon.
