Installing Pools in Tight Residential Lots

lassiter excavation tight residential lot

In Northern California many houses sit packed together on small plots. With homes of 2,500 square feet or more sitting on a lot of 5,000 sq. ft. This can present some serious challenges if you’re thinking of installing a nice swimming pool, but it’s certainly not impossible. If you’ve been told a pool can’t be built in your yard there is a good chance the company you are talking with doesn’t want to bother. Or they don’t have people with the expertise to do it.

Tight Home Lots Make for Complex Excavation Work

The primary hurdle in building pools in restrictive spaces is the excavation work. Once excavation is done, building a pool can be done with materials that can be carried into the pool site, such as pavers, or pumped into the site like concrete.

The real challenge for the excavator is how do you get 10 to 20 truckloads (depending on pool size) of dirt out? Pool Companies that understand the complexities and potential problems use experts like Lassiter Excavating that have the experience and expertise to do jobs that others can’t.

Respecting and Retaining Existing Site Features

While small access can be a big hurdle there are other factors that also create challenges for excavation. Trees, walls, fences, decks, utilities, property lines, all must be accounted for. It’s almost a given that each job will come with its own unique set of obstacles and it’s up to the excavator to be able to deal with them.  Most of the issues can be addressed by using equipment that is right for the job. This requires an excavator that can efficiently and safely operate many types and sizes of equipment.

Careful Planning Makes Excavation Look Easy

At first glance these jobs can appear to be an impossible task. But, if the jobs get started right by the right people with the right equipment, it can look easy.
