It is such a pleasure to work with quality people. William and Todd were efficient, knowledgeable, and very hard working. They are warm, friendly , and pleasant. Additionally, they are an excellent team and helped greatly to begin my pasture remediation and drainage issue. Third Hand Earthworks promptly returned my call, came within 48 hours to see the job and gave me an estimate. The price was fantastic ‼️ I would recommend them to anyone looking to have excavation done.

I'm so grateful for William at *Third Hand Earthworks* !!! He 100% made s*** happen for us!! Practically overnight too. 🤯 I reached out to him and he was able to come to my house the *same day* for an estimate and to look at the scope of the project. All I have to say is I found the price to be extremely fair for the extent of the work that was needing to be done and I didn't even question it! Much appreciated my friend!! We have a backyard center island that was choked by pricker bushes and poison ivy, dead trees, lawn clippings, you name it! It was back there lol. It seriously needed a face lift! We set something up and I told him to give me a call if anything were to open up sooner as I wanted to get the work done as soon as possible. Lo and behold he gave me a call and was over my house within the week! William is so professional and kind and incredibly skilled. The Foresty mulcher is an absolute beast! My lawn is also still in great shape after he worked through it. It didn't damage our grass at all which was a concern for me because of the weight but it looks fine..! I would 100% highly recommend choosing him for whatever project you're dreaming! That machine must have been so expensive and requires so much knowledge to maintain... What William does is truly an art form! I'm extremely happy with the work that was done just in time for the first day of spring.🌱🌼✨🌞✨💚💚💚 Thank you so much Third Hand Earthworks!!
