How to Prep for Successful Land Clearing

Land clearing is done for many reasons and here at Jeff Thompson Excavator, we specialise in jobs both large and small.

Whether you’re preparing land for a new build or simply want to install a fence, we can help you get the land ready.

We understand the area regulations for land clearing so that all rules and regulations are followed.

Now that you’re ready to get started, here’s what you can do to make sure the job is successful. 

Understand the Regulations

Though we are well equipped to stick to area guidelines when land is cleared, as the property owner, it’s also a good idea for you to learn more.

Familiarise yourself with the laws in your area so that you are aware of what can and can’t be done.

This is important because failing to follow the regulations can result in large fines and may even slow down or stop your project from moving forward while things are settled. 

Create a Budget

This ensures that you don’t wind up with a bigger bill than you can afford.

The cost of land clearing usually depends on how much needs to be cleared away and how large the piece of land is.

By getting a good idea of how much it will cost to go ahead with land clearing, you can include the price in your budget so that your entire project stays on track and doesn’t leave you broke when it’s finished. 

Survey the Property

Usually land clearing is done only where construction will take place.

Hiring a surveyor helps you determine what needs to be removed, including trees, existing structures, fences and other items that are in the way of the construction project moving forward.

Together, you can mark where obstructions are so that we know what needs to go. This speeds up the process and allows us to work even if you aren’t on site. 

Hire Some Help

Now that you’re fully prepared to clear the land, you can give us a call and we’ll be there to do the work for you.

We are happy to give you an estimate and some advice on how to go forward with your building project.

No area is too large or too small for our team and we can take some of the work and stress away from you and your team.
