Incredibly Professional, I would highly recommend him for any dirt work. Has an Excavator and Truck, impressive what he can do in 1 day. 
-Tony Y. 

I run a branch office for a company that installs sheds & garages throughout western Washington, and in that capacity I work with numerous clients each year who require brush & tree removal, grading work and installation of gravel pads. Chris with Earth First is the only contractor I recommend to those clients. His responsiveness and level of communication with customers makes my job far easier, and his work ethic and attention to detail ensures that our installations have the best possible start. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

From start to finish Chris was a joy to work with. He helped us streamline our vision and added his knowledgeable opinions where needed. I especially loved that he was at the job site actually working and operating the equipment every day. His co-worker on the job, Will, was polite and courteous as well. Straight away I knew the job would be done correctly and to our liking. Would/will hire him again in a heartbeat. You can't go wrong with this company.

"Chris Crouch from Earth First Excavation Inc. recently completed installation of rockeries for us. We had a problem sloped area which we didn't know how to handle. He came up with a solution which was aesthetically pleasing and cost effective. 

He exceeded all of our expectations. He was courteous knowledgeable and professional. He arrived on site as planned and completed the work in the time he promised and within the estimate. Great care was taken to protect our concrete driveway whilst he was using his digger and loader and he cleaned the area after completion. 

All in all a pleasant experience. We would highly recommend Earth First Excavating Inc."

"We recently completed two projects through Earth First Excavation and have been overwhelmingly pleased with the results. The first was the creation of a large boulder/rock garden at our entry and along our driveway and the second was the re-grading and landscape preparation of a large front and side yard and the installation of an ADA compliant garden pathway around most of the property of 1.5 acres. 

Chris and his workers took great care in consideration of each of these projects, working with our Landscape Designer and building contractor and in selection of materials and equipment to complete the projects. 

The results are stunning. 

Both projects came in on budget, on time and with absolutely no damage to the surrounding landscape, driveways or walkways which were newly created during the summer and early fall. 

We recommend Chris's work highly and without any reservation to anyone who is looking for an exceptional result by a business which values customer service and satisfaction above all!"

"Chris and Will did a great job to help us reclaim our backyard. They accomplished exactly what we had envisioned and were punctual, courteous, and on budget. They're control over the machinery used was impressive even in tight spaces. They took the time to sweep, rake and restore everything before leaving which is not always the case.

I feel confident in recommending their services to anyone looking for a reliable trustworthy company to help with the heavy lifting.

Thank you Chris and Will, good job guys!"

"Beautiful work and fantastic to work with!"

"We've been lucky enough to work with Chris on two projects- driveway/rockery grading issue and an entire backyard transformation. He is a true artist! Our rough ideas became an oasis thanks to his improvements, suggestions, and talent placing each boulder, riser, patio, and landscape beds. His experience gave us the backyard we dreamed about! His crew is so friendly, respectful and hardworking. No hesitation to recommend and use them again!"

"I had hired another contractor to build a two rock walls. He came and just randomly placed rocks and said that was what I would get. After some "discussion", we parted ways. 

I contacted Chris and asked if he could salvage the job. He came out, looked at the existing work, and said he could fix it with the rock already on site. 

He and his helper showed up promptly when he said they would, carefully went over what I wanted, and then went to work. They removed the first contractors poor attempt at a rock wall, and then skillfully constructed what I would call works of art. They then hauled in 13 yards of gravel to repair the driveway that had been disrupted during the rock work. And finally they placed the left over boulders at the edge of a parking pad to allow me to expand the pad. When they left, it looked like no one was ever here, except for two new excellent rock walls, and a crisp new driveway.

I am very particular when it comes to someone else doing work for me, on my land or my house. I have high expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris for any kind of earth work. He is a true professional, a gentleman, and a craftsman who takes pride in his work."

"Earth First did major excavation and installation of walls, boulders, and steps for us. We live on a steep hillside and stability/retention were of utmost importance in this project. Chris and his team transformed our slopes into a visually stunning and accessible landscape. I can't say enough about how great of a job they did. Chris is a true artisan, placing each rock optimally to achieve a perfect look. He is extremely punctual, completed the work in a timely fashion, and listened to all our inputs. It was a true pleasure working with Earth First and we give Chris and his team our strongest endorsement/recommendation."

"Chris was recommended by one of my customers. His level of aptitude and attention to detail was great. Setting 1000 lb boulders on a pond liner was made very easy by him and his crew. Chris, hope you you read this and see the picture of what you helped create! Grateful!"

"Chris Crouch, Owner and Operator of EarthFirst Excavation Inc. is a wonderful person to work with. He is highly skilled, punctual, kind and courteous.

I called Chris and he immediately returned my call. We setup an appointment to come and give me a bid for the removal of shrubs and take to the recycle. He also removed all the sod on three of the front yard areas. I was amazed how skilled he is in the removal of the selected shrubs and the sod and how well he cleaned the areas. He truly is a professional and very skilled at what he does. 

Chris then brought in premium topsoil for the new planting beds and about 15 two – three man boulders. He skillfully placed them in the three areas as accent rocks. I am very pleased with his work as is the landscape architect I am working with. 

I highly recommend Chris to do excavation, placement of boulders and building of berms with the topsoil. Once again he was a pleasure to work with and he comes with my highest recommendation."
