Frequently Asked Questions

What are the main advantages of land clearing?

Land clearing offers a number of advantages. First, land clearing offers a clean slate to work from. Clearing away old growth also allows what does grow back to stand out more clearly against the newly denuded ground. For example, certain grasses will do well in the soil created after removing what used to be there. 

Another advantage is access . Removing trees makes driveways and other forms of access easier for vehicles without having to trudge through forest to get where you need to. One more notable advantage of land clearing is the ability to increase your property value. Once a piece of land has been properly prepared and landscaped, it will be worth much more than its former unkempt state. Some people even clear for this reason alone, as they can sell their property and/or use the money for landscaping purposes elsewhere.

Another benefit conferred by land clearing is safety from fire hazards. Heavy vegetation makes wildfires harder to fight, which means greater risk for those living nearby or working on the property. In extreme cases , wildfires can actually threaten entire communities – but through land clearing, homeowners make themselves less vulnerable should such a fire occur.

Finally, consider that any kind of construction work is easier with land cleared beforehand. While you can usually get away with it if the ground remains covered, you really need to know what’s on the other side of all that overgrowth. It’s not unheard of for someone to make a turn or try to cut across where they shouldn’t only to find themselves in an impassable situation (like up against a tree!). Land clearing opens things back up once more.

As you can see, land clearing offers quite a number of advantages – some practical and some social.

What are the main advantages of lot leveling?

Lot leveling is the process of filling low areas or depressions located in a lot. Low spots can be an eyesore and pose potential problems for your foundation, sidewalks, driveways, etc. By leveling your lot you will make your property look much nicer and ensure better performance of these components of your property.

By eliminating low spots on your lot you are also making it more functional. It will be easier to build on this level surface, which means that future constructions will not require much digging or preparation. If you’re planning on building a new home then additional excavation costs might impact your budget significantly. Therefore, leveling the area before you start building might save you some money down the line.

Another advantage associated with the process of lot leveling is that it will increase the value of your property. While this advantage might not be readily apparent, it is a scientifically proven fact. The first houses were built on flat land and there was a reason for that. From the moment they come into being, buildings should be located on level surfaces because they are easier to construct and maintain this way. This means that your house, once completed, will have an edge over other similar structures located near you as far as price is concerned. In addition to making your home more functional as explained above, leveling your lot before construction will also make it more attractive from an aesthetic perspective, which further increases its resale value down the line.

In conclusion, leveling a lot provides several advantages such as making future constructions easier and less costly, increasing the value of your property, making it more functional, and making it look nicer.
