in Oldham, Rochdale, Greater Manchester and the North West

Every construction project begins with essential groundworks, as anything less could lead to structural weaknesses. Extensions and landscaping are much the same, demanding careful earthworks to ensure results meet a high standard. Based in Oldham, we carry out these important ground-related tasks throughout Rochdale, Cheshire, Lancashire and the nearby areas. Our team can help prepare the ground for whatever you have planned – whether it’s a rear-facing extension, dazzling new driveway or garden renovation project.

Fully trained in the use of digging equipment, we move large volumes of earth as carefully as possible and respect your environment throughout the process. We perform the following:

  • Excavation and levelling out
  • Land drainage preparation
  • Footings for home extensions
  • New driveway installations
  • Landscaping and roadways
  • Pond lagoons and much more

LJD Grab and Groundworks Ltd is highly experienced and assists with site clearances across the North West. Please contact us to learn more about our services or to arrange for a quote without obligation.

Groundworks | Digging, Foundations and More

As part of the National Plant Operators Registration Scheme (NPORS), we come fully trained in the safe use of mobile digging equipment. Not only does this save time and provide peace of mind in a job well done, but it also ensures we can excavate in tight or restrictive areas.

Footings for Extensions

Extending the home is a great way to add more space, but much like a new property build, your extension project must begin the right way. Our team will dig to the rear or side of your home to the perfect depth before installing the footings (a type of shallow foundation) that support your new space for decades to come. This help combat subsidence issues at a later date.

Land Drainage

The weather in Oldham, Rochdale and the surrounding areas can be wet, even in the warmer seasons. To keep the landscape looking its best in torrential rain, it’s important to include drainage as part of the groundworks process. We lay pipes that pull this rainfall away, which keeps the environment free from moisture damage.


Don’t let your driveway fall into a state of disrepair before renovating it with new materials. An old style will naturally impact the look of your property, and it may even cause pooling water or serve as a tripping hazard. At LJD Grab and Groundworks Ltd, we can tear out your old block paving or tarmac before installing new materials – complete with high-quality drainage to prevent water issues.

Pond Lagoons

Be it a domestic site or agricultural environment, we can dig to any depth required. We will prepare the ground below, leaving you with a finished body of water that serves as a visual showcase and welcomes local wildlife. As a reliable grab hire company, we can also take away any waste from the site quickly for your convenience.

LJD Grab and Groundworks Ltd is proud to offer an array of services, including the digging, drainage and footings needed for building work to continue without fuss. You can rely on us for high-quality craftsmanship and a safe approach every step of the way.
