Fauquier County Excavation Company

Monomoy Services, Inc. is a full-service excavation company serving farm owners and residents of Fauquier County, Virginia since 1988.

Located approximately 50 miles west of our nation’s capital, Washington, DC, Fauquier County is nestled in the heart of Virginia wine and horse country. Scenic country roads lined with stone and rail fences wind past picturesque estates and through historic towns and villages that played a pivotal role during the Civil War.

Warrenton, Fauquier County’s seat of government, changed hands between the Union and Confederacy over 30 times. Chief Justice John Marshall grew up in Fauquier County and Colonel John Singleton Mosby and his Mosby’s raiders rode to fame along the winding back country roads.

Since 1988, discerning local landowners who value professionalism, attention to detail and quality work, choose Monomoy Services, Inc. for:


  • Site Development
  • Road and Bridge Construction

  • Grading and Site Preparation

John Pennington, President of Monomoy Services, Inc., says:

“There are almost no barriers to entry in the competitive business of excavation. There are no minimum education requirements, technical training standards, or experience required to hang out one’s shingle, put a sign on a pickup truck, and declare oneself ready to begin changing residential landscapes for better or for worse. That’s why you should ask for referrals from people you trust before choosing an earth moving company to work on your property.”

Monomoy’s clients have included some of the most talented and well-known builders, architects and landscape architects in the Piedmont Virginia area. Monomoy’s work has appeared on the cover of Architectural Digest and other home and garden publications.

“With all of our capabilities and achievements, I am most proud that we have maintained an efficiency in our operations to allow us to keep our rates in line with others. Monomoy has a hard-earned reputation for providing quality and value to our clients,” says Pennington.
