I thought it was a sink hole at first, but turned out to be a trash pit. They removed everything. Everything turned out excellent. They were very professional, prompt, and explained everything as they were doing it. I was pleased with their services and I highly recommend them.

Work was done professionally and on schedule. Found ways to save money on the job but did not cut corners. Very satisfied with the results. Very accessible during the job and after the job was complete.

Wonderful! Matt is very knowledgeabe. I had an eye for what I wanted done with a tight budget to work with. Matt came out with many great tips and ideas that all worked for my budget. His crew was responsive and great to work with - even with my last minute scope changes. The job was completed in a weekend - just as promised. His financing option allowed me to enjoy this beautiful addition to my back yard sooner than I intended. I would definitely recommend KnowTrees and work with them again for any new project!

The pricing was fantastic, but the owner/operator is insanely lazy and very difficult to communicate.  Do not waste your time.  I was quoted 3-5 days, I fired him after 5 weeks.

I asked David to help me with an excavation project. He gave me a very fair price. He scheduled the work quickly, showed-up as promised and did a fantastic job. What really impressed me is that he was not quite satisfied with the outcome, brought in another piece of equipment (on his own initiative) and over-delivered and never mentioned charging extra. I highly recommend David and his crew at All Clear Excavation.

CMCLELLAN EXCAVATION & LANDSCAPING
He excavated the sink hole, removed tree stumps, logs etc.  Added 6 loads of dirt to the yard.  he left the yard in complete shambles,  didnt remove all the debris, didnt even try to grade the dirt to a usable level, broke two pipes between my swimming pool and pump, didnt fix them, i had to find the shattered pipes and repair on my own after his helper "kinda fixed" them. The fence sections he took down to get in looked like awful, i had to go back and fix those as well  He offered to come back out the next day 'to finish' with more dirt and grade but wanted to charge his "second day" rate of $1800 just to show up.  The worst part of the whole deal now is getting quotes to fix what he left ( getting on a schedule for such a large job is almost impossible).  mutiple landscraper quotes to add more dirt  and grade the yard to where seed or sod can be laid.  I am glad the sink hole is gone, but i would use this guy again unless he paid me. 1621

Our homesite is large and in an unincorporated part of East Cobb County.  The land had been neglected with a dense thicket of half-dead trees, stumps, and uneven ground left by the tree removal service.   Bryan had to bring-in a Caterpillar 953 track loader with a toothed-bucket to first rip and dig around 150 stumps and root-masses; that took several weeks of intense labor and rough grading.  Approximately 200 tons of dirt was graded and moved to correct drainage issues, all of which was part of our existing lot so no new material had to be imported.  Another 10 large tandem-axle dump truck loads and two 16 cubic yard container loads of JUST STUMPS AND TREE ROOTS were excavated and removed from the work site.  Bryan completed all of the dirt work personally using his own equipment and trucks; he is an owner/operator and does not lease his equipment.  This is somewhat rare with smaller contractors due to the sizable overhead expense involved.  So in other words, what he tells you he can do is not contingent on what the rental company may or may not have the day work is to begin.   Site preparation can be difficult and laborious depending on how much dirt has to be moved and graded.  Since there were so many trees and stumps to deal with (not to mention the garbage weather this year), this phase took several weeks to complete.  Good equipment operators know intuitively how to level, backfill, and finish grade for effective drainage.  Bryan knows how to do this very well, and our site, slab footings, and yard were finished to our specification.  After site prep, we pulled permits ourselves with the county.  This requires a surety bond to be purchased, as well as a septic analysis by the county health department.  It did not matter that scope of work had no plumbing or electrical, so be prepared (we had to have our drain field replaced which cost $4200 including soil analysis).  The footings were prepared to code and passed with no issues.  Again, an experienced dirt and concrete tech will save you time and money if allowed to perform necessary site prep first.  It makes no sense to get your footings dug only to fail inspection due to inadequate compaction of substrata, or a stump or root that is rotting underneath.   The buildings are engineered structures that have already been designed to code for numerous municipalities and counties nationwide.  So after we selected what we wanted, partial payment was made with balance due on satisfactory completion.  The crew arrived on-time and completed both structures in two days.  HINT:  if you have fresh concrete and don't want oil dripped on it by their truck, ask the lead to place some cardboard or wood under the engine, otherwise you'll have an awesome oil spill on your 13k concrete driveway that Bryan crafted two weeks prior.  The driveway and sidewalk were formed and poured in two separate days, and went-off without any issues.  Like all the concrete, we paid the plant directly which represented a savings since Bryan does not mark-up that cost; you only pay for the labor and material actuals.   The whole job - all four phases - took about 140 days to complete, including weather delays.  Dirt work and grading requires a "sweet spot" of moisture, temperature, sunshine, and readiness to complete effectively.  If you're patient, especially here with ATL bi-polar weather, you will end-up with a satisfactory job.  This stuff cannot be rushed.  The metal buildings are high quality and match the house in color, roof-pitch, and layout.  The more you spend, the better looking and higher quality building you'll get.  Opt for welded truss work, 12 gauge steel framing, and boxed-eaves.  I opted for custom insulated garage doors that match the house garage door.  That, as well as color-matched gutters and vinyl windows make it look crafted and finished.   Bryan is honest and what he says he will do is what he will do.  He provides a written estimate and does his best to stick to it unless a major change-order such as all-day stump removal or grading revisions occur.  He does not bait-and-switch; he will stop the job and notify you should something need attention.  I recommend his services.

FA Girl and Her Tractor
I saw the review for this company and decided to use them, it was the worst decision Ive made in a while I called Adria 3 times and spoke to her about doing some work for the county. if she didnt want to assist me she should have said so but instead told me she would call me back several times but did not. I wasted several days waiting on her to call back thinking that the reviews on her company could not have been wrong, but it was. She could have had the courtesy to give me any excuse and let me move on. Thanks for NOTHING! I dont like giving negative reviews but she treated me like she didnt need anymore business, but didnt say so. Must be nice in this economy to just ignore clients.

Recent Review: Like many homes in the Woodstock area we were cursed with a bury pit that the builder left under our front yard.  After ten years of trying to cover it over and sodding the area, we finally hired someone to dig up the area and fix it once and for all.  The sink hole area caused by the bury pit was large and extensive covering a large percentage of our front yard.  We had several contractors look at the problem and give us bids, some more confident than others about how to fix the problem.  Dirt Tech impressed us with their experience, knowledge of the problem and confidence in getting it fixed.  The job took three days and required five loads of dirt, a bobcat and some other rental equipment to tamp down the new dirt.  We were fortunate, when they dug down they did not find any tree stumps or building materials, which is often what the builders throw in these pits.  What they found was black top soil that the builder had used to backfill the ditches dug for the storm drain from the street.  This topsoil is loose and crumbly and was the reason for the sinkholes that were occurring.  Dirt Tech removed this top soil and replaced it with good hard Georgia red clay.  They put in layer after layer, always tamping it down and grading it.  The finished product is a front yard that is as hard and solid as as a golf course.  The final cost was exactly the amount estimated.  There were no attempts to upsell us or overcharge.  The yard was graded for proper water run off to avoid erosion problems down the line.  Robert was pleasant to work with and even kept his cool when harassed by a drunken neighbor of mine.  There was one glitch in that the power line was cut during the dig, but this was due to the power company incorrectly marking the location of the power line.  Once cut, a quick call to the power co. and they were out to fix the problem. Overall, we are very happy with how the project turned out and we have confidence that we have solved our yard problem once and for all.
