What People Are Saying

Andy took great care
Andy took great care to solve my drainage and excavation needs in a very cost effective way. The work was done over 7 months ago and has held up perfectly

We will definitely be working with them again on future projects
We worked with Andy Duckworth and Blue Alder Excavation Services to help us clean up fallen trees from a windstorm. He also helped us clean up our logging roads, removed stumps, graded, and spread gravel. He was super easy to work with. Very polite professional, and yet very personal. We will definitely be working with them again on future projects. Looking forward to visiting their farm this spring.

Andy is very responsive, reliable and great to work with. I never knew my yard could look this good and I never knew the potential my yard had until talking with him. I highly recommend Andy and his team at Blue Alder!

Shoutout The Blue Alder
Shoutout The Blue Alder for the awesome work on our front yard. They were a spur of the moment choice after seeing their sign in a neighbors front yard. Andy and his team completed a front yard remodel to really improve our curb appeal. Stump grind, plant removal, leveling, brick work, drainage, and hydro seeding. Two weeks in and the front yard is looking amazing with grass coming in fast!! The best part of hiring The Blue Alder was the communication which is very important when working on a project like this, nothing was missed. 10/10 would recommend.
