Land Clearing Tips for Homeowners
When you need to make way for new improvements or structures on your property, you would most likely have to let go of everything that you have in that area. For instance, if you want to add a swimming pool to your lawn or if you need to build an extension for your home, then the area must be cleared so that you can get work started. To ensure that things are done properly and you wouldn’t miss out on anything important, land clearing tips for homeowners may be necessary.
Easy as it may seem, land clearing is not just about removing everything that’s in the area that you need to clean up. Ideally, you would have to let go of everything - trees, bushes, stumps, clutter and so much more. The best kind of contractor to call for this job are tree experts. This is because tree contractors are equipped and have the knowledge to get things like these done. Especially if there are trees or stumps, then you know they can be handled and removed properly.
Here are more tips you can keep in mind:
1. Secure required permits.
More often than not, the state requires you to secure permits not only for building new structures on your property but also when you’re getting a lot of work done. Especially when heavy equipment will be used and when trees need to be removed, then you are required by law to have a working permit. You may ask your tree contractor’s advise and assistance if needed.
2. Have a plan.
You must have a plan of what exactly you want to get done on your property. You can’t just ask a contractor to come in without any clear instructions on what you want to be done. Most of the time, if there are drastic changes such as when tree cutting was done, then you can’t re-do and replant the tree anymore all too easily. So you must be sure first of what you want.
3. Be open to other possibilities and expert recommendations.
Keep your mind open to recommendations of experts such as your tree contractor. For instance, if a very healthy and beautiful tree should be removed but you can actually build the new structure around it or away from it, then it can still be saved.
4. Your presence is important.
Many tree contractors are reliable enough for you to leave them as they do their job. But if you want to be absolutely sure that all your instructions are followed, it would be so much better if you’re there to supervise. This way, any additional clarifications or inquiries can be answered and if there are any changes to the original plan, you’re there to approve it immediately.
