When I bought my house, I didn't realize how much work it was going to be. Unfortunately, after discovering sprinkler system line problems and a whole lot of underground issues, I realized that I was going to have to take excavation into my own hands. After renting a back hoe and giving it a go, I realized that I didn't know the first thing about using heavy construction equipment. After nearly taking out the corner of my garage, I decided to spend a little more time doing research. After reading articles on this website, hopefully you will also figure out what to do.
