We’ve worked hard to create our lineup of services that are centred around transparent and quality-orientated excavation services for all clients located in Eltham, Research, and surrounding suburbs.

At the beginning of the process, we’ll discuss all matters of the brief with you, allowing us to understand any challenges or specific requirements that might be on hand. The beauty of having a hands on approach is that our managers are on-site, decisions can be made on the spot, and it also makes consultation with the customer super easy. So any good job begins with a consultation, from there, we’ll plan the project, then move on to excavation works.

Our projects always start with an assessment of the lay of the land, we will look at where water will run, we will plan around this. We will use our expertise to spot areas that might cause problems later on, any earthworks project should be laid out to allow water to run freely into drainage and catchment areas, we don’t wan to turn your backyard into a swimming pool. 


It is our finer touch that seperates us from the rest, in our years dealing with earthworks and earthmoving, we have found ourselves performing landscaping works often, with retaining walls, garden beds, full backyard overhauls and topsoiling being some of the earthworks we have completed. Using our bulk earthworks skills coupled with our finer landscaping abilities, we have a killer combination which allows us to not only judge the timing of projects with a high degree of accuracy but also price jobs very accurately, making it smooth sailing for us as a business but also you as a customer. There really is no rush with Hammer Excavations, we know what we do, and we do it well, this makes the job of higher quality, because we have no need to rush.

Usually relating to building construction, this type of work is used to convert rocky spaces of land into a number of other formats. This might be in the form of a pool, pond, or to prepare the land for concreting. In some cases, it’s even used before playgrounds are installed, or patios are placed down. Excavation in the sense we are using here is referring to excavation using machinery for the purpose of construction, also referred to as earthworks or earthmoving. Usually employing the use of excavation machinery such as excavators, bobcats, posi tracks, graders, dozers, haul trucks, tippers or tip trucks and water carts. 

Some different types of excavation are civil construction, bulk earthworks, earthmoving, landscaping, residential excavation, demolition, hydrovac excavation or non destructive digging, industrial excavation, excavation for services and pits, basements, trenching, foundations and landscape design. Some of the different aspects of earthworks include spoil removal, topsoiling, top dressing, retaining wall construction, clearing, grading, bulk earth removal, loading trucks, site cuts, dewatering, basement excavation, rock breaking, soil removal, shoring, benching, boxing out and battering.

Across this field, there are also a number of types of methods used to create the intended result. This typically depends on the nature of the project itself, but they include excavating land for contexts relating to:

  • Topsoil

  • Earth

  • Muck

  • Rock

  • Trench

  • Dredging

  • Cut/fill

  • Basement (below ground level)

If you’re looking for an expert in this line of work, we highly recommend speaking to our professionals to make sure all areas of the process are fully understood. As your land may have specific details that are important to council regulations or your own needs, it’s important to ensure all parties are well-informed
