Create lasting memories and get the kids out of the house with your new basketball hoop!
Before those NBA finals can be played in the driveway, someone has to install it. The work required — digging a 4‑foot deep hole, mixing ⅔‑ton of concrete & lifting a 300‑lb. glass backboard — is no joke.
Your in-ground basketball system is a 2‑part process.
On the 1st visit — after I've contacted 811® for you — your hole will be dug and the anchor system will be embedded in the concrete. This is the most critical part of the installation process to get right.
Then your concrete needs to dry — another area of importance. I recommend 5‑7 days to harden in warm weather and 7‑10 days in colder weather. After-which I'll return for the 2nd visit to erect your system.
During assembly, impress your kiddos as they watch how their new hoop is installed. They'll have the most level/calibrated system in the neighborhood!

DO YOU HAVE A HOOP PICKED OUT YET?
If you haven't purchased your hoop yet, contact me for a recommendation on size/brand for your application. A few brands offer lifetime warranties that include dunking and hanging! These hoop's will be the last you'll ever buy ... your kids will someday be using it with their kids!
Regulation sized backboards — high school, college & NBA — are tempered glass and 72" wide × ½" thick (13mm). Smaller sizes include 60" & 54" widths.
It's common for less expensive models to come with acrylic (plastic) backboards that are also thinner — ⅜" thick (10mm), or ⁵⁄₁₆" thick (8mm). Acrylic backboards will yellow over-time ... glass will stay clear.
Here are some guidelines regarding backboard size to get you started:
54" : Tight Area, 1 Car+
60" : Normal Driveway, 2 Car+
72" : Large Driveway, 3 Car+
Many tools are required and many of mine are custom-made. While others are renting the specialized tools needed, you'll have a company that owns them!
You'll love watching my custom backboard crane, as it eliminates the risk of back injuries and shattered backboards.
My custom concrete mixer eliminates inconsistent wheelbarrow mixing.
My concrete vibrator eliminates the risk of air pockets and honeycombing.
My powered auger and jackhammer eliminate the risk of delaying trips to the rental store because of underground obstructions.

Paul G., University City (St Louis), MOI found Jeremy to be a perfectionist. No detail was overlooked. I often thought as he was working..."that's good enough", but I realized it would not be for him until it met his high standard. His work was both organized and concise. I enjoyed seeing how he had thought through every phase of the goal installation process. He developed custom/specialized tools for the job, and had improved upon others. It was quite fascinating to see his ingenuity. The end result was a perfectly installed in-ground basketball hoop! Would certainly recommend his services.
