Gareth Ward brings both construction and management experience to the team. As the owner of Confined Cut Earthmoving, he is already a trusted name in the construction and retaining wall industry with 12 years of customer service experience, Gareth has the perfect combination of construction know-how and excellent customer service skills




A member of the team for three years, Daniel works on excavating projects of all sizes. Along with his day to day duties as our main labourer, he also takes the lead and manages others on our bigger projects where we need a few extra pairs of hands. From the small details to the big picture, he ensures that everything he does is done properly and to our excellent standards.



We needed 35 cubic metres dug out with the only access being a standard door frame. Previous excavation earth moving contractors refused to do the work. Gareth (whom didn't own small enough equipment for the job) went above and beyond to figure out the best way to do it including sourcing the right machine for the job. He was friendly and helpful and did what he could using the budget we had! He is very hard working even worked through the 40 degree heatwave. If I knew anyone who needed similar work done I would (with no hesitation) give Gareth’s details.


I needed a driveway carved on a reasonably steep vacant block, adjacent to an arterial road. Gareth impressed me immediately because of his professionalism - he turned up on time to see the site, he provided a detailed quote when he said he would, then he turned up to do the work when he said he would (despite terrible weather). I'm willing to pay more for excavation earthmoving contractors in Melbourne Vic with this attitude, but his quote was also the best value. He negotiated site access with my neighbours so that I wouldn't have to pay for traffic management, he carried out the job exactly according to the quote (even with nearly 50 mm of rain falling over two of the three days he worked), and was courteous and polite throughout. I also couldn't fault the quality of the job. Very impressed and I would recommend that people needing an excavator get in quick before Gareth realises how much better he is than others and increases his prices accordingly!


A reliable and professional excavation earthmoving company. He promised AND delivered. Exceeded my expectations! So impressed they are quoting additional projects I may need..


Gareth is very professional in his conduct. He is polite and communicates well. He visited our site, provided a quote and completed the work on time and within the budget of the quote he had provided. I would have no hesitation in recommending Confined Cut, the leading excavation earthmoving contractors in Melbourne Vic.


Gareth & his team have just replaced our fence and retaining wall, I was able to watch the demolition of the old fence & retaining wall as well as watch them build the replacements, what a difference in the quality of the work done & the materials used. This was a big job that involved the removal of five large trees as well. Gareth is a perfectionist, he & his team took great care every step of the way. What a pleasure it was to come home from work on the final day & find our property had been cleaned up so thoroughly & to see how fantastic the end result looks. There aren't many excavating operators as good as Gareth and we will only ever ask for one quote in future! Thank you Gareth.




  • Not all Walls are built Equal……. by Confined Cut Earthmoving 2,387 0 Not all Walls are built Equal……. Unfortunately for this customer they had already paid to get a new Retaining Wall. With a price comparable to ours the poor customers received an extremely poor new wall which didn't even last them 4 years. Along with nearly falling over, the wall unfortunately took part of their driveway with it and caused major cracking…
