We've got your GROUND WORK covered

for all your needs when it comes to developing your acreage.

We DIG down & find the best solution

Starting from the ground up we have what you need for all your rural excavation needs. We can even remove your trees, haul material while we prep your site for anything.

We Do Your Dirty Work

If you need to flush it, we make sure your septic system takes it where its supposed to.

Wondering Where the Water Went?

If your water isn't getting to where it needs to and you don't know why? You may have frozen or cracked lines, and we can help with that too.


Welcome to Acreage Development Solutions (ADS)

We're a full service, family run acreage development contractor. 30+ years of experience in building driveways, excavating basements, installing water systems and specializing in septic systems. ADS can help you in all “DIRT” aspects of your acreage build…right through to service and maintenance once you move in!


Though developing acreages and tailoring service packages to meet the needs of your unique site isn't all we do. We're pleased to say we can do so much more.

Water not reaching your sink or animal feeder?

We can help. Broken or frozen lines are another one of our specialties.

Got a funky smell in your basement?

Yup, we can tackle the nitty gritty gross work around your septic system too. Pumping and regular septic system maintenance is part of the services we offer in addition to new septic installs.

Have a beautiful piece of land but need to turn it into a landscaped paradise?

We can take care of all your rough landscaping, creating a terrain with stunning retaining walls, ponds and grading your property so whatever you plan doesn't wash away.


But it doesn't end there. Among many other services, we also love a challenge and have tackled large rural developments. We have had the opportunity to work with decentralized septic or water treatment systems for many kinds of big developments like campgrounds. Since we have been around so long we have gained the knowledge, experience, and reputation to handle the services people and businesses need unique to the Alberta Foothills that surround the Calgary area. We also understand the needs that come with this diverse landscape and pride ourselves on the ability to work in the toughest terrain. Browse our many services and don't hesitate to give us a call and tell us about your development project!

Thank you Clayton and team for helping us out of a desperate time-sensitive situation, when you were already fully booked with pressing deadlines and commitments! Your team is very knowledgeable and professional, yet friendly and personable. A true joy to work with. The complete new septic system was installed and the property looked better than before, due to their work in shaping the landscape and seeding. I truly appreciate Clayton's complete knowledge of acreage living, and the time he takes to understand the customer's specific circumstances before making practical, cost-effective recommendations tailored to the customer's needs. - Kayla Robinson
B. MowattB. Mowatt
Clayton and the team at ADS did a fantastic job at Turner Valley School’s new playground. Not only were they a pleasure to deal with but ADS had the equipment and expertise necessary to deal with some very unexpected challenges and managed to keep our project on schedule despite the circumstances. The guys on site took every precaution to ensure the safety of students when equipment and materials were moved in and out of the construction site during regular school hours. The finished product was classy and professional. ADS was instrumental in the success of this project and I would highly recommend them and will certainly give them a call with any future projects. Clayton…you have a great group of guys and run a top notch outfit! - B. Mowatt

From start to finish it was a pleasure dealing with this crew. They responded to my emergency situation in a most timely, and efficient, fashion. Upon arrival they were knowledgeable, plan oriented, quick, thorough and forward thinking. They followed through to make sure everything was up to code and complete; leaving me in a much better septic situation than where I had started. The project price point was competitive and I felt it was very reasonable given the emergency situation and resulting solution. Thanks guys! Great work. - Kimberly Smith Epp
