Hardscaping for Excavators

A Natural Transition for Excavation Contractors

Solid industry connections, working knowledge of construction concepts, and understanding of common drainage, runoff, septic system concerns, and soil issues can aid expansion efforts as you add hardscape projects to your line of work.

For excavation companies that already focus on protecting shorelines, for example, being able to fulfill more of an end-to-end solution, including setting the foundation for retaining walls and installing the walls, can be a logical match for your business fit.

The Hardscape Industry’s Expanding Opportunities

A growing appetite for more comprehensive, stylish outdoor living spaces is one of the main drivers in demand for quality concrete pavers and walls. Inspired by magazines, social media sites, and their neighbors’ backyards, today’s discerning homeowners are seeking beautiful landscape additions, including paver walkways, driveways, and patios, that can enrich the time they spend outdoors.

Learn How Unilock Can Help Your Company

The decision to work with Unilock products goes beyond access to premier pavers and walls that you will not find anywhere else. It also connects hardscape contractors with ongoing support and world-class training. Achieving the level of craftsmanship required to build reliable, durable hardscapes that meet the high standards of a Unilock Authorized Contractor and lead to strong referrals in your area requires continuous education.

Excavators – Expand Your Business with Hardscape
As an excavation contractor with an established foothold in your region, you have proven your company’s worth for preparing properties for landscape renovations or solving drainage issues, but the limitations of the business model may have you considering an expansion.
Be Ready to Fulfill the Rising Interest in Modern Outdoor Design
Modern style is taking over the landscape design industry. Homeowners are asking about bringing clean edges and a simplified look to their outdoor living spaces, and manufacturers are responding with a myriad of related cutting-edge products. The missing piece could be landscape designers and installers if they’re not prepared to fulfill homeowners’ requests for modern designs.
Carving Out a Niche in a Crowded Market
While some landscape contractors are beginning to tap into more specialized service offerings, the vast majority are still trying to do it all. Many businesses try to be everything for everybody; they fear turning down work and missing an opportunity to book out their season. But in this effort to be a one-stop shopping experience, they do a little bit of everything, but specialize in nothing.
Hardscaping Is a Tough Business, But It’s One of the Greatest
The bad days are few and far between, but they do happen in this business. When the heat is on at the height of summer, when equipment fails, a crew member calls in sick, or a delivery is late—particularly when those things happen all at once—that’s right about the time you forget about why you went into hardscaping. It’s those times you forget about the wonderfulness of working outdoors, of having your own crew, and of all the effort that went into building up your expertise and skills.
