Engineered Retaining Wall and Patio

Meticulous work, thoroughly understood needed repairs. Corrected poor drainage issues. Ensured that the retaining wall and patio were done to the highest standard so all issues were mitigated. Cliff applied design elements that not only solved problems but also enhanced the overall look and feel of the property. The slope is now stabilized so that I no longer need to worry about erosion or slumping. Fantastic company! Worked in all kinds of weather to get the job completed.

Excellent Experience!

This is a wonderful family run business! The pride they take in their work is evident in their communication and workmanship. Cliff made great suggestions that were practical and kept within budget. His wife, Jodi, runs the show behind the scenes with clear and timely communication. Both they and their team were always very friendly and professional. I wanted a few things that they dont directly provide such as irrigation, outdoor lighting, and concrete, but they made great recommendations for other companies who specialize in those areas, and they all worked smoothly together (or at least it seemed so from a customer perspective) to achieve a beautiful end result. I would recommend Ramshaw Excavating & Landscaping without hesitation!

I would recommend them time and again!

Soil and Sod

I had Ramshaw come in and lay new soil and sod for the completion of a major backyard reno project. They had to fill in and build up the grade to match the new sidewalk and patio and then lay new sod. The Ramshaw crew did a fantastic job and really added the final touch to finish off this project for us. Even the clean up afterwards was great. Cant wait for the new sod to tale root so we can really start enjoying our transformed backyard.

Landscaping - large boulders for flower bed

We recently hired Ramshaw to create a front flower bed with large boulders and are very pleased with the results. And great service as well, which is often not easy to find! They were so easy to work with, organized, and ensured a smooth process from start to finish. Highly recommended.

Tree Removal - Fast, Safe, & Easy

We wanted to have two trees and an additional stump removed from our property. We were connected with Ramshaw through Homestars, and opted to hire them for a few reasons: a) their great price, b) positive reviews, and c) they were the only company that would remove the tree stumps instead of just grinding them down.

The pre-job correspondence was quick and clear and they arrived exactly when promised. The work itself happened over two days. Cliff and his helper were quick, safe, efficient, and did a fantastic job leaving our yard in great shape.

Were excited for all the extra space & light that these tree removals provided. Our experience was A+, and we wouldnt hesitate for a second to recommend Ramshaw to anyone looking for a referral.

Yard landscaping

Ramshaw Excavating landscaped our front and side yards with grey limestone rock. We are very happy with the rock. They also installed 4 sandstone large boulders and 4 shrubs and 3 wheat bushes. We are happy with everything, albeit abit disappointed in the size of the 4 shrubs.
Ramshaw also levelled our back patio stones.

Thank you for the review. We are pleased you are happy with the work done. We are sorry to hear you are not happy with the size of the shrubs. They were the biggest size the nursery carries as discussed before planting. We hope in time you will be happy with the growth of the shrubs. Feel free to call or email with any questions or concerns we would be happy to help.

Retaining wall with drainage

I had been looking for a company to build me a retaining wall in a challenging spot above ( and set back) from an existing 100 year old stone retaining wall. I finally came across Ramshaw who had stellar reviews.
Cliff returned my phone message quickly, and came out to discuss the project the same week. He gave me a clear idea of what was possible, and recommended putting in weeping tile drainage pipe as well to take
the pressure off the existing wall. Something that other companies had not suggested, but when I consulted an engineer contact I had, he confirmed that that was absolutely necessary for this project.
I had had a bad experience in the past with a contractor, so I had MANY questions and Cliff was happy to have several more phone conversations with me so that I fully understood the complete details of the project, what was involved, as well as confirming that he had a reliable team, and that he would also be onsite for the duration of the project as well. This really put my mind at ease, and I knew I was hiring the right company for this job.
They started exactly when they were booked to come and Cliff was again always happy to answer my questions, and I regularly checked on things to see how it was progressing. There was one glitch early on when they found the original decommissioned gas line pipe was exactly where they wanted to put the posts in, so I had to contact the gas company to come and cut and remove the old line. Which was a two hour delay while they waited for this. Cliff was very easy going about it, and not stressed at all about this glitch, which put my mind at ease. After this brief delay, the project moved forward as planned, and my new retaining wall looks amazing!!
I couldnt be happier with this company
(including Jody in the office!),- and the on-site team were very pleasant to deal with, and super quiet and calm! Everything cleaned up and left neat and tidy. Its such a pleasure to work with a company with such integrity, professionalism, and honesty!
