RAM Excavating Services
Choosing the right location for your building site is the most important part of the building process. The grade must be shaped and sloped so that the building site does not retain water. RAM’s Excavating Division utilizes a laser-level attached to the bobcat for precision grading, ensuring that your building site is in the best possible condition to begin construction.
There are many ways RAM’s Excavating Division can assist you with your building project.
These are just a sampling of the services we offer:
- Building Pads
- Hauling Dirt/Gravel/Rock
- Riding Trails
- Indoor and Outdoor Arena Footings
- All Weather Paddocks
- Seeding and Fencing
Choosing the site
For both outdoor and indoor arenas, the actual location of the arena and it’s ability to drain away excess water is as important as the arena itself. RAM’s Excavating Division utilizes a laser-level attached to the bobcat for the precision grading necessary for proper water control. The option of drain tile placed beneath the outdoor arena or around the exterior of an indoor arena is also a great way to help control the water quickly and drain it away from the site.
Choosing the Base Material
There are several products such as ag lime and certain types of gravel that can be effectively used as the base. The base product must be machined rolled for proper compaction or the top dressing can disappear and the entire footing can be compromised. RAM’s Excavating Division can place and pack the base material to a thickness that matches your type of riding or jumping.
Choosing the Top Dressing
A variety of products are available for the top dressing, and costs vary depending on the advantages that each product can provide. Contact RAM’s Excavating Division to have a free no-obligation analysis of your site and to discuss which type of top dressing would be best for you and your budget.
