Why Land Clearing Is Important, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

When you buy a piece of land to build a home or business, you may be eager to get started on erecting a building and landscaping the grounds immediately. However, before any construction or landscaping services can take place, you must have the land cleared. Learn why you should make land clearing a priority when preparing a site for building and landscaping.

Usability & Safety Issues

Whether the buyer has purchased raw acreage or a vacant lot, the land may be overgrown or filled with hazards that make it unusable or unsafe in its current condition. Before building and landscaping services can begin, the property should be cleared of dead plants, rotting stumps, and trash so workers can access it safely and make way for the owner’s desired home or business.

Clearing the land also reduces the risk of wildfire, especially during times of drought. When constructing a swimming pool or a building with a basement, clearing is required before excavation.

Improving Tree & Soil Health

Clearing the land of excessive vegetation also gives the remaining plants a better chance to thrive with less competition for sunlight and water. Invasive weeds that deplete the soil of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus can also be taken out during this phase, so there will be more nutrients available for desirable plants when landscaping services take place.
