Below, we have highlighted a few of the services available. However, if you have any questions about any of the services we offer, feel free to reach out to our knowledgeable team.

Foundation Drain Installation

Our excavation contractor services for foundation drainage can easily redirect water to divert it from your basement or crawlspace. If you have a problem with wet basements, it’s important to prevent frequent flooding from damaging your property. Leave it to our excavating team to install trenches or other drainage solutions to safeguard your home.

Backhoe excavation for small to large construction jobs requires qualified operators. We offer comprehensive backhoe services as part of our suite of excavation contractor services. From installing waterlines or septic tanks to providing drainage solutions, and digging out small residential pools,  backhoes are an integral part of our extensive equipment inventory.


Do you need to backfill holes in your yard or fill in an inground pool? The licensed and insured professionals at PMW LandWorks serve the Richmond Metro area and all of Virginia. We provide safe, accurate backfilling services. In order to perform this work properly, you need an excavation contractor that uses the best fill material. Proper technique and materials can limit cracking and impact loading for better results.

Excavation and Grading

It’s important to start any construction project with a level foundation. A slight slope away from the foundation sets the stage for proper drainage for your home. Without proper grading, you could expose your foundation or basement to flooding.

Prevent erosion and safeguard your landscaping with the right excavation and grading equipment and expertise. Professional grading services by PMW LandWorks establish natural drainage away from your property.

Cost of Excavation Services

It typically costs between $1,445 and $5,429 to complete excavation work. That averages out to $50 to $200 per cubic yard. However, there are many variables that go into providing the most accurate estimate available. So, we’ll meet with you to discuss your needs and go over all your options. That allows you to prepare your budget and work schedule accordingly.
