Owner David Nelson started Nelson Backhoe Service in 1985 with a backhoe and a dump truck. Over the next 30 years he has developed the business into a full service excavation contracting company now known as Nelson Excavation.
Nelson Excavation specializes in new residential construction from large estates to smaller single family dwellings. In addition, all other excavation needs such as grading, trenching, land clearing, concrete/ asphalt removal, moving/planting trees, and rock setting can be handled. With an eye for detail and extensive earthwork knowledge, Dave Nelson has earned his reputation as a hard working professional.
Nelson Excavation’s countless projects over the decades have ranged throughout the Santa Barbara region, from Carpinteria to the Santa Ynez Valley. Being honest and fair has produced satisfied contractors and property owners for jobs big and small.
