    i had thought about adding light excavating to my landscaping and lawn care business. wondering if this would be something good that is should get into.

    Don't call it light excavation! If you put that you won't get calls because people will think you don't handle much, just say you do excavation and pick and choose jobs. People who put light in front of any work are hurting themselves.

    they were 200ft cell towers that the state police used. they went to satellite so they didn't need these towers anymore. we had to take down the fence, little building and the tower.
