about us

tackling your construction projects through our combination of skilled labor, old-school hard work and a background in engineering.

About highland services

Highland Services was established in 2020. Owned and operated by Carl Pietila, the company is founded on hard work and determination to find the best solutions to every project they take on.

Throughout his early working years, Carl and his team owned and operated a pool-installation business where they learned the ins and outs of construction and machinery operation. 

After working in the engineering industry post-graduation from Michigan Technological University, he transitioned back to construction and started his own company in Livingston County, Michigan. Since then, they have been tackling an array of excavation and retaining wall projects to area residents and developers who value the hard work and valuable solutions Highland Services provides. 

what we do

Engineering retaining wall solutions to optimize your property layout, create erosion control barriers, and add visual interest to your landscape.

Utilizing heavy machinery to prep your build site by clearing, leveling, and excavating to create optimal development conditions.


Excellent Services. Your trench work bailed us out of a major issue that no one else was willing to tackle. Thanks for squeezing us into your summer schedule. 


Our clients are saying


I highly recommend Carl and his crew. We had them replace a 100+ft retaining wall right in between our house and the two neighbors and they did an amazing job. Easy to work with, reliable, and they made sure we were happy with the final product!

Carl and his team did an awesome job completing the projects for our new build home. Planning, communication, and service were all a top notch experience for us. We highly recommend them. 


Our Clients Are Saying


I've never had such a professional and experienced company at my property. I had a very difficult patio build where the old one had too be saved and the new one dressing up an old structure. This was almost impossible until I met up with Highland Services.


Our Clients Are Saying


We hired Carl and the crew to dig a basement for us. It was a tricky job - narrow lot with excavating up an existing crawl space and footings. The work was done perfectly. Very responsive and took care of business.
