  • What’s the maintenance like for the excavators? I’m guessing it isn’t cheap. But the new one should be cheaper than the older one

  • So is it just a case of people trying to save a buck or do they not properly check out the bona fides of their contractor?? How about just checking out Chris's Channel and getting it done right in the first place!!!

  • I wish I could talk with you on the phone in private, can't find your phone number, my name is mike, I own a small farm in sc, in looking for a mini and had some ?'s, nobody around here wants to help you out unless your buying from them, so I'm trying to do my homework first, great videos by the way, I have subscribed and I watch your videos religiously

  • That's some nice topsoil out there. All we have is red clay around here and you can't even grow grass in it. Just weeds!

  • Chris , with the amount of time you have to sit whilst operating excavators etc do you have a fitness routine to keep yourself relatively fit and healthy . I did office work most of my working life and it did give me back troubles which I still have today . Your videos are very relaxing and there’s now a heck of a lot of us being entertained , thank you from all of us .

  • The asshole that screwed up put tree stumps and no telling what else in the pond, what a idiot! Branches, tree stumps and layers of grass in the pond dam are freakin ridiculous! At least the owner had nothing to worry about from now on with you making everything right!, good job CHRIS!

  • What are the steps to build a pond? I've been looking on google for quite some time but have yet to find any. What do you need to keep the water from seeping through the dirt?

    Andrew ShevchenkoAndrew Shevchenko3 muaj më parë
    • @nTOMnia thank you.

      Andrew ShevchenkoAndrew Shevchenko2 muaj më parë
    • The soil type is the main factor. A clay of some sort is best for holding water. Ground water that is naturally high in the water table can keep a pond full even if the soil isn't good at holding water. Ponds are built in low areas of land with a decent watershed to supply the water, or ground water/springs, or creek fed. Check out for some good info.

  • I know there are barns/sheds/outbuildings on the property, but I'm still surprised that a house that big only has a 2-car (as opposed to 3-car, or even 4-car) garage. Just doesn't seem to fit, and likely wouldn't have been that much harder or more expensive to make the garage a little bigger.

  • you need to "STOP" !!...moving your camera around so much so fast when( it only gives viewers motion sickness...) you show where you are going to be working. I've been seeing you do this mistake to offend, I get it you want to show your progress on working landscape. However if you'd slow you panning-camera shot down by 25% that should correct motionskickness effect on your video's.

  • Hi Chris, Can you help me understand how I should develop the back of my property in NC? I have 12 acres and the back is about 9 acres. It is overgrown and I would like to make it so I can enjoy the land and 'some' of the trees and build some sort of path to walk. At the moment it seems like a waste as we never go back there. Are there any websites you can suggest?

One day the crew asked to plug into my electric because the other crew had the temp box pulled. Another day, a crew needed to borrow my extension cord. The house owner is a land developer. You boys don't charge enough. Eaglegards...

    • We left for lunch from our business one day and when we came back a "contractor" was parked in our customer drop off spot at our front door. He was plugged into our outside plug and was ripping plywood on the sidewalk for the business next door. I asked him why he wasn't in front of their door. That business owner there didn't want to hear the noise. After a few choice words, the jackleg moved his crap to in front of the place he was working. I put a lock on the cover of the plug after that.
