    "Greg was easy to deal during the entire process. The work required was discussed before commencing, and the team efficiently carried out the task required. Any issues that came up were brought to my attention immediately and dealt with easily. The entire job plus a little extra that was discovered on the day was handled extremely well, and under the estimate which was very pleasing. I have no hesitation in recommending GM Groundworks Ltd to anyone looking for a quality job handled in a timely manner. Thanks Greg."

    "Greg was a pleasure to work with, his knowledge and abilities shone on a job with limited access and a lot of earth/ clay to remove. We had an 80m2 cut through some unforgiving clay and postholes for retaining our lawn and the neighbour's fenceline s we could build our new deck area and allow for planters etc.
    His care taken while diggiing along the neighbours fenceline without damaging a couple of their established plants were well appreciated. All of this was achieved in the first real downpour of the winter. Greg's knowledge mean we could still maintain a constant dig rate safely and effectively even though the weather was against us on a couple of days. I will be recommending Greg to anyone who is in need of their services. Cheer - Aaron

    "Greg came in on a days notice to excavate the inside of an old building.
    Tight access & Operating area, Hot Conditions, the works.
    Greg has a good attitude and equally good work ethic.
    Possibly the best subcontractor we've seen all year.
    Look forward to working with him again.

    "Greg from Groundworks did a great job for us. We had a very wet muddy area in front of our kennels (area about 4x3 m)
    Greg removed some tree roots, levelled the area, built a retainer and filled it with gravel.
    It now looks very smart and access to the kennels is easy---no more struggling and slipping in the mud.
    He works very fast and efficiently.
    we are very pleased with the work that Groundworks did for us. I wouldn\'t hesitate to recommend them.

    "Greg did a couple of days landscaping on our site, preparing for mass planting. It is a reasonably tricky coastal site and we were working to a budget. Greg listened to our needs and came up with cost-effective solutions that were not ‘quick fixes’. He used excellent sub contractors for concrete cutting and other work. I’d happily recommend Greg to anyone who wants a job done efficiently and well. "

About us
GM Groundworks Ltd has been in operation since 2002.
We specialise in tight access job sites.

What we do
GM Groundworks specialises in tight access situations and with over 10 years experience we offer you solutions to difficult sites and a job done properly with no shortcuts. As we say “There are no molehills when dealing with difficult, tight access sites - GM Groundworks – Moving Mountains”.

The Dingo mini digger is small in size, being only 970mm wide, but packs the punch of a 4 ton excavator as it runs a 47 litres per minute hydraulic system at 3400psi. This machine is ideal for both commercial and residential work as it can get where the big boys can't. Using a Hyab, I've had the Dingo lifted over homes to reach inaccessible back yards and have been airlifted by helicopter to a site that would only have otherwise been assessable by 300 steps. With ramps I can climb up and over retaining walls and stairs. The Dingo is also light enough to go over tiled patios and around swimming pools.

4 – 1 bucket with grab attachment for all earthmoving and clearance work

• 120j Rock-breaker with concrete, rock and tar-seal chisel moil.

• Posthole digger – sizes range 250, 300, 350, 450 & 600 with special teeth.

• Trencher – can dig a 150-300mm wide trench at 900mm deep.

• Rippers and Polypipe layer
• Dirt Sling – dirt from postholes is placed in the sling for easy removal, no mess.

• Chipper Bucket – ideal for removing light materials in large volumes (such as chip-bark, mulch, soil & various building metals).

• 1.2 Tonne Digger that can narrow down to gaps of 840mm.
More attachments available

All put together GM Groundworks can excavate your back yard, or under your house, dig trenches, postholes and tree holes for planting, shift dirt, bark etc in or out, dig garden beds and driveways, lay polypipe, and rip up tough ground with ease.
