About Us

Jody Wurst Rock Hard Excavating

Established in 2011, Rock Hard Excavating started with one truck, one bobcat and one excavator. Founder Jody Wurst ~ “I have been playing in the sandbox since before I could walk mastering my skills” With over 20 years of experience (not including the sandbox) we’ve grown to over a dozen employees and enough equipment to tackle virtually any job that comes our way. .

Our company strives to be a one-stop shop for you and all your excavating needs. Life is busy and it is helpful to have only one contractor to deal with that you can trust will do the job right, the first time.

Over the past 15 years, we have also developed a great network of skilled trades & services to help along the way. Your excavating/landscaping should be a hassle-free experience & that’s one of our primary goals. References for any kind of project are available upon request. We service Vernon to Peachland and everything in between.

I met my wife Christina back in 1999 and we have been together since. We have two beautiful daughters, Ashlie our oldest. Emma is our youngest.
