Homes in a subdivision usually have all the drainage and roads completed prior to construction of the home.
But, when your home or barn is in a rural setting that does not have roads directly to your site or often does not have culverts and proper drainage, the planning for driveway construction and drainage are key issues. It is actually an excavation project unto itself.
Dirt Dogs Excavating has years of experience grading landscapes and handling earth moving projects and all their considerations such as: the right firm base with the desired slope, drainage, ditching, crown, base rock, and layers of gravel.
Having good drainage is important for your driveway, which includes the crown and the side ditches and any culverts to get the water across the drive.
Also important is to have a top layer (2-6 inches) of gravel mixed with fine rock that can be compacted to have a firm drive.
Another very important consideration for your driveway is emergency vehicle access; curve design, turnarounds, turnouts, tree considerations, etc.. We’ve been creating beautiful driveways since 2005 and have the experience and skill to do handle any size of driveway project.
