Whether your needs are residential or commercial, you may need to have a parcel of land cleared. Even though you’ll hire a company that’s experienced in lot clearing, you may not fully understand what’s involved in the process. By exploring some of the questions contractors frequently get from their clients, you’ll get a better grasp of what is entailed in this type of service.
Common Questions About the Lot Clearing Process
What is done with the material that’s removed?
The shrubbery and portions of the trees are reduced to mulch, which is left to cover the freshly exposed layer of soil. In doing this, the excavation crew helps keep the soil moist and fresh.
Why is mulch necessary?
In addition to protecting the top layer of soil from inclement weather and animals, the mulch will help keep the soil healthy. The nutrients in the mulched material will seep down into the soil, allowing healthier grass to grow once the land clearing crew has completed their work.
Is selective clearing an option?
Your lot clearing crew might offer this as an option because it will allow you to maximize the benefits of your land. For instance, if you have a cherry tree on your property, you may want to leave it standing, so you can harvest the cherries every season. In that case, the crew will remove other trees and foliage on the property, but leave that tree standing.
What types of machinery are used?
An excavating crew will use heavy machinery, which is why they can do the job efficiently. The most common machine they will use will have a rotating axle that helps to pound away at trees and thick shrubs. This tears down the foliage and turns it into mulch at the same time.
