Create More Usable Space by Clearing Your Land This Summer

Land clearing is a fantastic way to increase your property’s value while creating more usable space. It also makes your property look better for your neighbors as well as your own enjoyment. Summertime is one of the best times to tackle this job. Not only is it easier to work when it’s warm outside, but you should clear that land before summer growth gets out of hand.

Reasons to Clear Your Land

If you own massive amounts of land, you may want to clear it for development purposes. Maybe you wish to build commercial buildings, apartments or an entire subdivision. Or maybe you just have some landscaping ideas for your yard and need to get rid of a few trees.

Perhaps you want to create a garden or plant some vegetables, and you need to remove stumps, brush, rocks and other debris first. You may even wish to expand your home or even build an entirely new one.

These ambitions make land clearing an essential task. Land clearing can also prevent fires on your property by removing brush and debris that can fuel the flames.

Land Clearing Steps for Summer

  1. Make a plan. Decide how much land you need to clear and what tools this will require.
  2. Clear loose brush, rocks and junk from the property.
  3. Demolish old structures. This step is best left to the pros.
  4. Remove trees and stumps from the property. This is, once again, a job for the pros.
  5. Level the land to make it more usable for your intended purposes.
  6. Make sure you dispose of all materials in the proper manner and in accordance with all local laws.

One tip for land clearing is to be aware of any potential pests or critters that can pose a threat to you. You should also take note of any potential hazards like poison ivy, poison oak and other troublesome plant life. You also need to be aware of any laws about the disturbance of natural wildlife habitats and get all proper permits for your work.

When It’s Time for a Professional Solution

Land clearing is a serious job that takes a lot of manpower and time. It may even take specialized equipment. Many tasks can also be dangerous for an amateur.
