Retaining Wall using Limestone Blocks Perth-Jarrahdale-Oakford-Byford-Mundijong

Before construction begins on your Retaining wall, council requirements my be required, as each council has different rules, so consulting your council is first.

Then once council is sorted , a design with the sizes and blocks required is next.  A contractor to build the wall, then construction commences.

A trench is dug where the blocks will be laid, the first block level will be laid and will be below the ground level to ensure strength for the foundation of the retaining wall. Applying cement mix on each layer of blocks holds the retaining wall in place.

Drainage for the retaining wall is also important as water pressure can damage your retaining wall, so it needs to be diverted away either with drain pipes/drainage clothe or a drain system.

At Dobson Excavations we can handle construction of the retaining wall, the drainage, all earthworks required so call Bruce on 0414755306 for a free non obligation quote.

Dobson Excavations Leach Drain Supply and Installation Culverts

Leach Drains Supplied and Installed Dwellingup-Harvey-Pinjarra-Wandering

Leach Drains Supplied and Installed Dwellingup-Harvey-Pinjarra-Wandering

Leach drains are used to rid of effluent, which comes from septic tanks. 2 Disposal systems are best, as one is being used the other is rested. Resting one allows oil & grease collected in surrounding soil to be broken down, 2 tanks also last longer than a single septic tank.

Leach drains are best purchased in concrete as they last longer than plastic. If plastic tanks are not installed properly they can collapse after installation, where concrete is a stronger product and will not collapse or spilt.

Leach Drains is a tube structure which has holes in the sides they vary in length so it depends on the amount of liquid waste to be deposed of to the size of the leach drains. What type of soil it is installed in and how it is built.

Liquid waste enters one end of leach drains from the septic tank, then slowly seeps out the base and the sides through the holes into soil.

At Dobson Excavations we can assist in suppling the leach drains/septic tanks etc, we excavate the hole install and finish the job for you contact Bruce on 0414755306.

Contact Bruce at Dobson Excavations on 0414 755306

At Dobson Excavations we supply the material, lay and compact your driveway. Whether you require Limestone, Red Gravel, Blue Gravel, Recycled bitumen etc, we supply the material required.

Compaction of the driveway is very important to bind the material, which is completed with a vibrating roller, the other factor for a driveway to last is the material, when obtaining quotes check on what materials they are using, this is usually, why some quotes will be cheaper as they use sub standard materials and they do not lay the right thickness for the driveway which then means your driveway will not last costing you more money later on, so also have in a written quote the thickness of the driveway and what materials are being used.

At Dobson Excavations we use quality materials from suppliers who have been in business for years, so your driveway will last years longer than our competitors.

Dobson Excavations Sand Pad Construction and Set-up

Sand Pad For House/Shed and Water Tanks Dwellingup-Pinjarra-Harvey-Bunbury

Sand Pad For House/Shed and Water Tanks Dwellingup-Pinjarra-Harvey-Bunbury

To build a house or extension the sand pad must be certified for building on, so the supplier of the sand is to certified the sand for building on.

Shed and water tanks sand pads only require clean sand without grass rubbish rocks etc.

For the sand pad for house or extensions 

Once certified sand is laid, it will be compacted, a certificate is supplied by a geotechnical business once approved, this is required for your structural engineer can design your concrete slab footing etc. There are a lot of customers being caught out at present, unknown to themselves where the sand is supplied from. Customers hire a bobcat operator to level the sand then are told they require it to be certified. So then they have to find someone else to certify the sand pad. Which then becomes a issue as not many businesses will certify someone else’s job and if they do it will be for a price. If they are unable to find someone, then the council may require the whole job to be restarted again with the correct procedure, with certified sand, compaction and certificate.

At Dobson Excavations we can take the headache out this by completing the job from start to finish with a certificate to give to council to start the build.

Contact Bruce who can assist you on 0414755306.
