Whether it's for an exterior landscaping project, a construction site or even the extension of a building, choosing your landscaping equipment can sometimes be complicated. However, there are several simple solutions to carry out your projects.

Why do landscaping work?

Landscaping can be done to prevent landslides, for interior and exterior renovation, and also in road construction.
But also for:
  • Leveling the ground;
  • Laying peat moss;
  • Filling a ditch;
  • The construction of structures such as a low wall, pavement, etc.;
  • Exterior landscaping such as the installation of a balcony or a patio;
  • Any construction project or addition to an existing building requires the construction of a foundation;
  • Surface landscaping consists of removing the surface layer of the soil in order to flatten the ground;
  • Excavation, which refers to the installation of an in-ground pool, septic tanks or the digging of a cellar
  • Facilitate the installation of all types of pipes and the burying of pool connections;
  • Performing land filling such as slope leveling and retaining wall installation.
Before the landscaping work

It is essential to check underground networks in order to avoid any accidents before starting your excavation work (cables, pipes, etc.)

This inspection can be done directly from "Info-Excavation".
You do not need to make a locate request if your work is done on the surface.

Diesel excavator

For very compact soils that require power.

A small excavator is necessary if the situation requires a lot of power in a small space or if you have a simple task to perform. Like small demolition, stump removal, snow removal or digging a pool in the backyard. The open cab allows for optimal 360-degree visibility of the operator's work area and optimized comfort with their seat.

Vibratory plate

Compacting of all types of soil in confined areas.

These plates are ideal for compacting interlocking paving stones, trenches, outdoor landscaping, compacting bare soil (gravel, sand, earth, etc.) or soil covered with paving stones, slabs and other ornaments after your work. This compaction equipment is easy to operate: the compactor advances progressively depending on your pace. Simple and intuitive, this compactor is accessible to all. The vibratory plate is used in several stages of construction such as: tamping the bottom of excavations during foundation work; stabilizing layers of fill on gravelled driveways; compaction on asphalt roads; for road work or civil engineering or for landscaping.)

Battery powered rammers

Battery powered rammers make zero emission compaction possible! With a battery powered ramming machine, the operator works without any exposure to emissions

In addition to being an asset when compacting soil in trenches and city centers, the battery-powered rammers also reduce the operator's workload and environmental impact on all construction sites. One battery charge is enough to complete all the tasks of a standard workday. The battery is easy to change, requires no additional tools, and is ideally suited for compacting buried pipes as well as working in narrow trenches.
