Is that pipe clay or concrete?? looks like early concrete maybe 1950's , your are really quick. In our area you have to have a survey, pack down 6" of base underneath the pipe and concrete block both ends and hope you get one of the two human inspectors and not the guy who acts like a robot. Its not cheap and its not fun at all. Keep them coming especially the ones with the crazy home owners or crazy Karens that like to yell or tell you your doing it wrong.

Hey, know this is a stupid question. But can someone living in this area tell me why the dirt is red ? And not black/brown ?

I wouldve put a steel mesh on the outside of the ground pipe to keep all the dirt away from getting it clogged again.

thats a huge added cost to the home owner, here in Canada, you get a permit to put a road pipe in, nd the permit tells you what size and type of pipe that must be installed for a new entrance, if it freezes up with ice, the town ship, weather or not it is an UN-organized town ship or an organized town ship, it up to the town ship to have it steamed open, years down the road if your pipe fails it is up to the said town ship to replace that pipe as well keep all ditches dredged out, thats were most of use get our free fill to fill in low areas to make bigger yards or nicer fields, and were ever they dump they grade it out.. as the town ship looks for the closes place to dump the dirt that must be dredged out of miles of ditch every few years, yes we pay for that in our $7 a year we pay in our land road tax, after all that pipe is on the 15 foot road esment,,

I have always wondered. With this type of culvert, what is to stop dirt and debris washing into them? I found out today, nothing, nothing at all. Also. The two pieces of pipe that remained in tact. I would use those as upright posts on the driveway edge.

I'm surprised to see you doing a culvert. I work for the county road dept and once a property installs the culvert when they first develop a property and we sign off on it, we become responsible for the maintenance and replacement of them. Did you lube the pipe up? A come along and chain works great to pull the pipes together.

I wonder do you ever get people's neighbours complaining that you caused their property to flood? I mean, you were careful here not to send too much water along all at once, but it seems to me that once you fix the flooding in one place it's going to re-appear at the next place that has a clogged culvert - all the water that was sitting on your client's property will instead be at the next property that has poor drainage. Of course, if that happens they should understand that it's only because of their own inadequate drainage but people tend to be good at somehow not understanding things that will require them to do some work!

You have one of those jobs I've always wanted to try but unfortunately here in Florida if you don't have experience no one will train you as its not worth anyone's time.. I have on my bucket list is to learn a backhoe/excavator before I die.

Wouldn't it be better to drain it properly then come back when it's dry to grade and create the berm? That's what we would do up north.. No way you could finish a job with any grading with it being that deep full a water

Do you know if the homeowners on this property will be sharing their progress on US-first? It looks like it would be an interesting renovation.

From the farm house I'm guessing it's in the southeastern US, from the trees I knew it was N GA, Upstate SC, or W NC. When you started digging up sandy clay I KNOW this is NC. Am I right?

Good Morning @ Lets Dig, I had some doubts as to how this project would turn out, ( because of all of the moisture, i.e. rain) If I was your customer, I would have been extremely and pleasantly surprised at how nice this job turned out. Your quality of work is absolutely awesome. Your skills on the excavator and skid steer are top level ! Then to top it off your narration and filming is excellent. I very much appreciate that you don't overlay your vids with music. I guess I'm old school but I'd rather hear the machine's sounds, even from inside the cab than music. Don't misunderstand me as I love to rock out when inside of the cab rather I don't like it in a video. I'm a 59 year young, retired farmer/ landscape co., owner. ( And yes, that's my last name too). I'm very impressed with your overall work ethic and knowledge. I subscribed. Keep up the great work that you do. Wishing you all of the very best. Warmest Regards from Arizona

Before I started watching your videos I didn't understand the artistry. A good equipment operator has to be an artist to visualize and create the vistas people want as well as having a knowledge of hydrology, material science, trees, and that doesn't touch operating and maintaining equipment. Thanks for opening my eyes
