Red Oak Excavating is proud to meet our customer needs! This project consisted of multiple Versa-Lok Retaining Wall and Drainage Systems totaling 700 feet, regrading of entire yard to promote drainage and alleviate washing and erosion, seeding and matting along with regrading and stoning the main driveway. We also did tree removal and made and installed raised timber flower boxes. We are open to brainstorming with our clients on how we can help meet your needs in regards to your property. Thank you to our amazing customer for allowing us this opportunity! Call us today at 434-735-8595 for a quote!
