Since 1995 South Hills Landscaping & Excavating has proudly helped Pittsburgh’s home and business owners bring their ideal outdoor living spaces to life.

Owner Darren Davis built the company on the belief that customers should not have to compromise when it comes to their outdoor projects. In an industry where contractors are known to have a rap for being unreliable and lacking attention to detail, SHL brings reliability and dedication to each project.

Quality Construction

We believe each client deserves our full attention and ensure each project is completed with honesty and integrity. Our team’s commitment to perfection shines through from the moment we break ground on the project to completing the finishing touches.


Dependable People

In the same way quality construction begins with a quality foundation, we believe an excellent business is built on excellent people. As a family-owned company, we know our employees and only hire the best of the best. It’s how we ensure top-notch, reliable work every time.

The Right Equipment

Having the right equipment is key when it comes to landscaping and excavation. At SHL, we have the right tools for the job. Our crew is equipped with the most advanced and well-maintained equipment available to ensure the project is completed correctly and on-time.

Commitment to Our Community

Residents of Pittsburgh’s South Hills know that when they need a new retaining wall or custom
concrete work, SHL is the team they can trust. Born and raised in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, owner Darren Davis’s passion for providing his neighbors with dependable, quality service has earned him a reputation throughout the area for being the trustworthy source for their outdoor construction needs.

To our crew, working in our community and serving our community go hand in hand. Outside of work, Darren and his team are committed to being active members of the South Hills community and can be found at various local events.
