In this video we have to distribute a mound of dirt over someone’s property. They want to put down some concrete, but the area is covered by a huge mound of dirt. It’s our job to take that dirt and redistribute it over the customer’s property. As we do in this video, we’ll take care of any of your dirt moving needs! Call or text today at 317-784-8760 or for a free estimate on the price of your job.

It’s a fairly simple job, but important nonetheless! Installing concrete with dirt in the way is a no-go! So we need to remove the dirt. But where should we put it? Well, we’re going to distribute it all across the property. That way we don’t need to haul the dirt; we can just spread it across the ground! Not only does this take care of the dirt issue, it also rejuvenates the soil.

We remove the tarp covering up the dirt. Then we start shoveling the dirt out of the mound with our Vermeer 925 Mini Skid Steer and heavy-duty bucket attachment. With some careful maneuvering, we take the dirt in scoops and distribute it all over the property. With this new layer of dirt, installing the concrete should be no problem!

We’re doing a total fence removal today. This includes a wooden farm fence, lots of weeds, and a few trees. The fence is dotted with this foliage all the way from end to end. Once we’re done, the land will be totally flat. Call or text us for all of your landscaping needs at 317-784-8760 or email pictures at

The fence is wood, so we use a chainsaw to cut the fence rails off of the support posts with a chainsaw. After that we hop into our mini skid steer and knock down the posts with the lower lip of our root grapple attachment. Then we collect the wood logs into substantial piles and make use of our grapple again to haul the logs to our truck.

Next up on the to-do list is removing the trees. With the chainsaw we cut off all the low-hanging branches. This gives our mini skid steer access to the tree trunks. With this access we dig out the trees with our stump bucket. It doesn’t just work for stumps; it can dig up whole trees too!

Next is a real-time stump removal. If you want to see the mini skid steer and stump bucket in real-time, skip to 4:17 in the video.

With the first stump out, we move on to each and every other stump along the fence’s path. The stump bucket makes quick work of them. Now we switch our attachment to the root grapple once again, this time to gather up all the dug up bushes and trees and move them to our truck.

The last part of this job is flattening the agitated earth. Our leveler attachment does an excellent job of this, taking the rough ground and smoothing it out. All the stuff we did for the job—fence removals, foliage management, stump digging—we can do for you too! Just contact us at 317-784-8760 or for a free estimate!

There’s lots of undergrowth throughout this whole property. It spans the whole length of the site and makes the backyard look much smaller than it actually is. We’re going to clear out the whole undergrowth, removing all the brush and vines. This will dramatically open up the property, giving some much-need room to breathe! We do all sorts of landscaping jobs at Schott Services, including brush/foliage removal, grading, driveway installation, and so much more! Reach out at 317-784-8760 or for a quick and easy estimate on price!

Removing this foliage may seem daunting because of how much space it occupies, but really it’s no problem for our machine! The powerful Vermeer 925 Mini Skid Steer plows through all the branches, leaves, and roots with ease thanks to our brush cutter attachment. The brush cutter grinds up the plant matter with a rotary blade and turns it to mulch. The plants are no match for the crunch of the brush cutter! As the bushes fall, we mow them over with the brush cutter. The attachment works on both branches and leaves!

After we’ve mulched all the bushes, we need to pull out all the vines hanging from the trees above. To do this we switch our attachment to the root grapple, grip the vines tightly, and snag them, pulling them out of the trees. This is a snap for our machine!

Next up is grinding out the bushes’ stumps. We get to work with our stump grinder attachment. With some finesse, we are able to grind out the stumps. However, it becomes clear that it would be more efficient to dig them out with our root grapple, so we switch to that attachment and dig out the remaining stumps.

While digging them out we start cleaning the site, which is still covered in the mulch from the bushes and branches. We collect all the mulch with our root grapple and deposit it into our hauling truck. Finally, we grade the ground and put down new grass seed. Then we cover the earth with a layer of straw. This will protect the seed as it grows into new grass! Remember to get in touch with us at 317-784-8760 or for a free estimate on price.
