Proud to Offer a Wide Range of Excavation Services

What we do

If you’re looking to tackle some excavating, grading or machine work, you’ve come to the right place! We offer a variety of services: clearing, french drains, land grading, roads, fences/gates, and pond work. No matter the size of the project, we take pride in our excellent work.

Land Clearing

What’s the purpose of clearing your land? Do you want animals, more open yard, a pool? Each situation calls for a different approach, which is why we come and assess the land and give you options before we start. Sometimes we haul off the trees, other times we pull the stumps and burn it all. Let us come and see your next project!


Land grading is used to reshape the surface of a property or a portion of it. This can give your yard a nice level surface and can help to guide water away from your home. This can give you a nice and smooth blank canvas to work with for your next hardscaping project.

The Alabama rain sure does come down when it pours! The best way to keep water out of your house or business is to install a French Drain. We have a proven track record of mitigating water away from undesirable areas. If you're concerned about water pooling in all the wrong places call us for an estimate today!

French Drains


We install beautiful and effective fencing for both small and large properties. Whether you are just looking for a fence that is aesthetically pleasing, or you're fencing in acres of property to keep your animals reigned in - we are confident in our ability to provide a solution.


Let us take your driveway from gravel to concrete, break up and rebuild an existing driveway, or plan a driveway completely from scratch. We also offer services to build your dream driveway entrance gate to provide you with security and a wonderful first impression for your property. 


It’s best to leave the pond building to the professionals! We see it all the time where a pond just doesn’t hold water because it wasn’t built right. You can have peace of mind that your pond will hold water and look amazing when Pipp & Sons does the work.

What clients are saying

Quality work and very timely. We had a severe drainage problem in our front yard causing water to pool under our house. Pipp & Sons came out and I was hands off! They handled the whole project while keeping me informed of what the plan was and took into account any specific requests I had. Several very heavy rains later and my crawlspace is still dry! Great to find reliable contractors still exist.

We have used him for several projects and recently had him install a driveway entrance gate for us and it looks great! We are always pleased with the quality of his work. Johnny is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet and he shows up & gets the job done.

Worked with Jonny, great guy and knows what he is doing. Priced the competition out of the water and finished the job earlier than expected. Would recommend these guys for any land clearing or grading you need!
