Term Definition
Septic Systems

With a large range of sizes to choose from, septic systems are designed to manage sewage when sewage treatment plant is not readily accessible. Septic systems consist of a septic tank, a drain field and the land beneath the drain field. Household waste is collected in the septic tank for pretreatment before getting sent through the drainage pipes into the trenches in the drain field. When it reaches the trenches, the waste is slowly absorbed into the soil below.

Skid Steer

A relatively small vehicle that uses a wide range of attachments on the front to complete a variety of construction and landscaping projects. Although tools are attached to the front of the truck, the skid steer differs from other types of front loaders because the hinges attaching the front tool are located behind the driver. Modern vehicles offer fully enclosed cabs and additional features that provide better safety and performance over older models of these vehicles.

Stump and Brush Removal

A professional service that removes tree stumps as well as the sprouts that can begin to regrow from the roots of the tree. Tree stumps are often left to decay naturally once a tree is cut down, but this is a long process that can take many years to complete. Instead, some homeowners opt to have a professional company come in with heavy machinery to cut away at the stump for easier removal. Chemicals or burning processes can also be used to remove unwanted stumps.
