We don’t only excavate your projects, but we fill them back in. Whether it’s filling the area behind retaining wall or elevate a low portion of your property you simply need to select the type of fill you would like and schedule a day.  


Grading is one of the most critical aspects of any property. It helps prevent costly damage to foundations and basements. Grading can also prevent water build up in unwanted areas of your property.


Along with grading, having the right drainage system on your property can help prevent unnecessary and expensive damage to the foundation and other elements on your property. SMI’s years of experience in proper drainage can help solve problems you may be having.
