About Us

SLS Services was started in 1991 by Charlie Scott who is a fourth-generation small business owner. Due to the increasing demands for residential grading, SLS Services transitioned its work to meet the market’s needs. As work grew, our company grew with it. In 2013, Charlie started SLS Services sister company, Environmental Site Solutions. ESS was created to provide construction sites with environmentally friendly erosion control solutions and concrete washout containers. Our main objective for ESS is to maintain an environmentally friendly work place for our builders.

SLS Services, LLC has been awarded as the “Most Valuable Player” by NVR, Inc.

Won “Best of Show” at the Parade of Homes while working for Fox Ridge Homes for our yard grading and sod installation.
