"We've been wanting to add burms and jumps [to our trail] for a long time now but never had the tools or labor to get it done on our own.  Until now!  Shane with Barclay Excavating has done a great job and brought our trail to a new level.  Thanks to Shane and his vision and ability, we can now use our trail for mountain bikes, motos and even ATVs! Thanks to Shane and team for being quick, detailed and knowledgeable and for fulfilling our dreams of a badass trail."

There’s never any drama with Shane. He’s a great collaborator and gifted problem-solver. Always willing to do what’s necessary to make the job right. Fair prices and quick response makes Shane our go-to-guy for HOA maintenance projects. "

I want to thank you for the wonderful job that you and your crew did at our house in Chapel Hill over the past week.  


As I told you when we met, we are in the late stages of selling our house (under contract) and the buyer’s engineer inspector requested that we deal with the drainage near the house to make sure water moves away from the house.   I called you and said that we are on a tight timeline, due to the upcoming closing date.  You immediately jumped in, came up with solution ideas and the entire job was completed to my full satisfaction  within 4 days of starting the process.  The before and after pictures were very useful, especially for getting approval from the engineer.


The best surprise came when I looked at inspected the final part of the project, filling in a kind-of ugly spot extending from the newly constructed deck.  Beautifully done with landscape rocks and pebbles.  Really perked up the whole backyard area.


Importantly, the job looks good and complements the house, which was newly renovated.  I am sure the buyers will like the work.  I also appreciated how you dealt with a faulty downspout and came up with your own solution. 


Finally, the price was very reasonable, especially given that I needed this project done in such a short time.


I would gladly recommend your company to others who need landscaping/excavating work done.  I certainly enjoyed our interactions and the thoughtful way you approached the job.


Best wishes on your future work."
