What do trench digging services include?

Trenching services involve digging a large hole, usually using a trenching shovel and a trencher to help successfully lay underground wires, pipes, or structural supports. It’s also traditionally done to install or repair public drains, sewer lines, and underground utilities to serve populated areas. Trenching also has plenty of benefits if you’re taking care of your lawn! Whatever you need, Taskers can make your home improvement project possible. Here are the most common things you can expect from trenching services near you:

Straight trenches

If you live in an area with a limited surface to disturb, such as near buildings or roadways, digging straight trenches is the right choice for you. It’s a kind of trench where the sides are parallel, and the base is at a right angle. Having trench boxes or shoring is usually required as protective systems. A six-inch straight trench can also be helpful if you’re trying to control pests in your property, where you can apply a non-repellent pesticide into the soil to achieve a treatment zone.

Sloped trenches     

Sloped trenches have angled sides to prevent cave-ins. Its angle is determined by trench depth, soil type, and the amount of time the trench will remain open. If you’re planning to install large pipes or culverts, this can be the right kind of trench for you. It’s also common to have sloped trenches in new construction sites with a wider path of soil.

Benched trenches

To ensure that your trench or excavation site is entirely safe, you can try benching! Benched trenches are those with sides that have been cut away to create steps. The height of these steps, otherwise known as vertical distances, is determined by the soil type. The less stable your soil is, the shallower your angles should be. It’s best to bench it if your trench needs to be up to 20 feet deep. This is to help stabilize your trench and to make it more secure. For protective systems, shielding or trench boxes are usually used.

Bell-bottom pier hole trenches

For those planning to build a certain structure, make sure to have someone dig a bell-bottom pier hole trench! The base or bottom of the trench is usually wider than the top, giving it a bell-shaped cross-section. This is typically used to install footings to support the foundation of a structure. Since these kinds of trenches have sides sloping inward over the floor of the excavation, more protective systems are usually required to keep them from collapsing.

Allambie Heights NSW, Australia

1st Feb 2021

We need a 20-25m long x 1 foot deep trench dug to lay a new underground water pipe into our house according to plumbers specifications. The trench will run from the water meter to the house. It must be dug 30cm from the boundary line beside a hedge (hedge to remain in place). Preparation of the correct location is appreciated as part of the job, but can also be done prior to arrival, budget depending. Some small plants / ground cover and tree root removal / cutting will be required. Job can be completed anytime, but must be completed by Sat 6 February. Plumbing / pipe laying is not included in the job. Own equipment preferred.

Hemi was fantastic. Great communication and attitude. We are really happy with the job. He was really easy to work with, brought a truck load of gear fit for the job and I’d recommend him to anyone.
