Discuss Your Pool with Our Excavators

Before our experts can bring our diggers and excavating gear to your property, we need to understand the scope of the project ahead. Our team will take the time to meet with you, survey your location and make a detailed plan.

If you’re ready to get started, our team is happy to schedule a meeting at your earliest convenience, so please let us know your schedule!

Understand the Pool Excavation Process

When you’re looking to build a pool on your private property, there is a lot to consider. To feel prepared before the project commences, there are a few things you should understand about the process – let’s take a look.


Before excavation day, there are a few different ways you can prepare your property. You can start by removing any yard furniture, potted plants, gardening tools, debris, etc. You want your lawn to be as clear as possible. Removing fencing and gates may be necessary to accommodate excavation equipment too.

Our team can go over the preparation process with you during our consultation.


The amount of time it takes to dig your pool will depend on a few different variables, including:

  • - Size of the hole
  • - Condition of the soil
  • - Layout of your yard
  • - Weather
  • - Large rocks beneath the soil

Most pool digging projects can be completed in a few hours or within a day at the most!

Dirt Disposal

You may be wondering – what do you do with the excess dirt after you dig a hole that big?

Our team uses a state-of-the-art excavator to remove dirt, rocks, and gravel where the pool will be built. While some of the excess dirt will be used for backfilling, the rest will be loaded into dump trucks and removed from your property for good. Our team is committed to disposing of excess dirt in a responsible manner and will use the material in other local projects, so it doesn’t go to waste.

Top Tips from Experienced Pool Diggers

You may be tempted to start digging on your own to save time and money. However, this is not something we usually recommend. Expert pool diggers use expensive machinery to survey and level the ground, clear out large rocks, and avoid any utility or plumbing infrastructure. You may run into unexpected problems on your own.

Here are some tips from our licensed pool diggers:

Expect a Lot of Dirt

When we say you should expect a lot of dirt, we mean it. Picture a giant pile of dirt, and then multiply that number by 5. That’s usually about how much earth needs to be removed from your property in order to produce a perfect hole for your new pool.

When it comes to dirt, you have a couple of options. The first is to use some of the soil to fill in or level other areas of your property. The second is to allow our team to safely and responsibly transport and dispose of the soil on your behalf.

Permits are Required Before Work Can Begin
