Lot Clearing

Lot clearing is not like mowing a lawn. It is not lot mowing.  Lot clearing requires heavy-duty equipment operated by qualified, experienced, land clearing professionals.

In this article we will talk about the unique nature of lot clearing. We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing. Call us for more information and/or a price quote in the Fort Worth area.

Lot mowing

Lot mowing, also known as acreage mowing, is simply a matter of attacking grass with a lawnmower, whether that be a commercial, residential mower that most homeowners use, or a tractor mower used by commercial mowing services.  It can be done on residential lawns, or it can be done on football fields. The main point is it is primarily the mowing of grass and nothing more.

Lot clearing

Lot clearing is something completely different. It oftentimes consists of clearing not only tall grasses, but also small bushes, vines, and even small saplings.   As such, it requires completely different mowing equipment, known as a brush hog, or bush hog, which is an attachment to a tractor mower. This brush hog has blades made of the strongest steel, and its blades revolve at an extremely high rate of spin.  It, in effect, overpowers brush and vines.  For particularly overgrown areas, the use of a chainsaw may also be needed.

Don’t try this yourself without . . .

Most homeowners, and property owners, do not have the special equipment necessary to clear a lot of small vegetation, which means they either have to rent the equipment, and then tackle the job themselves, or they have to hire a commercial company, like Keith’s Tractor Mowing, to handle the job.

Can a homeowner do lot clearing properly?  Yes, they can, given the right equipment, but a word of caution: lot clearing is a dangerous operation.  Without the proper training and safety precautions, lot clearing can cause injury and/or damage to equipment and surrounding structures.  That is why it is always our recommendation that a professional, commercial lot clearing company tackle jobs of such difficulty.

What does lot clearing cost?

This is an impossible question to answer. The cost of such a job differs depending upon the area you live in and the amount of competition among commercial clearing companies.  The industry standard is approximately $75 per hour, but don’t be surprised if the price you are quoted is considerably higher than that.  Obstacles, uneven ground, distance traveled, all of these things can increase the price to have your lot properly cleared.  Still, compared the cost of physical injury, or structural damage, or damage to the mowing equipment, paying a commercial company may end up being the least-expensive route to take.
