One of the first steps in developing a new home site is the excavation of the footings or basement. Whether you are working with a general contractor or getting started on your own, give us a call to get a quote on the excavation for the foundation. Hatter Creek Earthworks is experienced in helping the Owner or General Contractor set the grade for the excavation and layout of the dig. We can also install the footing drain tile, place the drain rock, backfill for concrete slabs on grade, and backfill around the stem walls or basement walls.

Septic Systems

Hatter Creek Earthworks is a licensed Sewage System Installer and a licensed Complex System Installer. We are experienced in installing standard gravel systems, gravelless domed chamber systems, pumped systems, and sewage lagoons. We would be glad to help you plan out your new septic system, provide you with a quote, and assist in getting the required permit applications.


Driveway needs and expectations can vary greatly. Whether you need an all-weather driveway that can withstand construction and heavy truck traffic or you need seasonal access to your back 40, we have the experience and equipment to build it. Let us help you get to that perfect building location.

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls provide more usable space, stabilize slopes, and provide a decorative and unique landscape element. From large block retaining walls to natural boulder rockery walls, Hatter Creek Earthworks can construct a wall that meets the site-specific requirements and provides the look you want. We also work with concrete contractors providing the excavation and backfill for reinforced concrete retaining walls.
