Land Clearing, Building Pad, Septic System, Irrigation, Roads, Grading, Concho AZ


After we purchased our land near Concho, AZ, I knew we were going to need some big-time help making it enjoyable for use. I called Jason and he spent several hours walking our land, 121 acres, with me.

We needed to have private roads cut in very rocky and rugged terrain along with a 30,000 sq ft building pad. Jason also took care to advise on the best possible locations for our septic system, water holding tanks and other excavation work to help minimize the overall expense to us.

Jason took control and made the project stress free for us. He not only went above and beyond what we expected, he completely explained and handled the permit process and inspection process. Jason installed our septic system, water tank and irrigation. He coordinated and took delivery of all the equipment and supplies needed to complete our improvements.

In addition to getting all the work done for us under budget, we received photos of the progress daily. Jason, we couldn't have done it without you! Thanks again! David & Valerie W., Chandler, AZ

To Whom It May Concern,

It is with profound professional and personal pleasure that I provide this correspondence on behalf of Mr Jason Craven an individual whom I have known for many years. He has, on numerous occasions, proven himself to
be a faithful, loyal, and talented contractor on my behalf. His seasoned approach to construction technique, planning, trenching, mentoring, and facilitating the successful implementation of projects on our propery is
testimony to his professionalism and dedication to customer service.

Mr. Craven has a personable approach to his profession and an uncanny ability to work with any person or group. In fact, he gets a twinkle in his eye when he is able to help another person achieve the success they are

Tenacious, honest, straightforward, sincere, and courteous, Jason Craven is a professional whom I would aggressively seek to resolve even the most complex of construction issues. My observations of Jason have revealed nothing short of a kind, sincere, and courteous individual who is genuinely interested in the success of others. His attitude toward customer service modifies my somewhat cynical approach to construction from; “Good, Fast, Inexpensive – pick any two” to “Good, Fast, Inexpensive – available from Jason and Desert Rat Excavating”. Just call “The Rat!”.

Most Respectfully Submitted,

Jim Wortham
