Excavating out a scenic outcrop with the Airspade

Ashfield, MA

The Blast of this airspade is no joke! 25 cfm powered by an industrial portable compressor, this fire-hydrant hose of air blasts away decades of soil and debris in seconds, mainly used to expose the extent of ledge outcrops, or roots of trees.



The overgrowth of this knoll was hiding the beautiful specimens, and field vista view. We removed the brush, pruned the shrubs that were selected to stay, and air-spaded the surrounding ground. This extensive overhaul exposed decades of soil buildup, and debris that was on top and hiding this incredible rock outcrop. It is a natural piece of art now, that flows with the design of the natural gardens, and adds a destination to the landscape.
