We would love to give you a nice, neat answer about needing land clearing services, but each situation is unique, and that means the best we can do is give you an overview of land clearing.  We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing, providing quality and affordable acreage mowing, bush hogging, and land clearing for the Greater Fort Worth area.  When the job is too large for you to handle, and you want it done professionally, call Keith’s Tractor Mowing.

What are land clearing services?

Land clearing, the phrase, is fairly self-explanatory.  It is removing impediments from a site where some sort of construction is going to happen. This may be a small job like a backyard shed, or it can be a mammoth job like preparing a construction site for a high-rise apartment building, or the initial clearing for a housing complex.

But even that explanation is too simplistic.  Removing rocks and debris is certainly lot clearing, but so is the cutting down of trees, the land preparation for the project, the staking out of the building site, the obtaining of local permits, and the interaction with the pubic utilities to make sure you are staying within the legal guidelines.

Can you do it yourself?

If you are clearing land for the aforementioned backyard shed then yes, you can certainly do the job yourself. With some basic tools, a pickup truck for hauling, and some good old-fashioned muscle, most backyard projects can be tackled and completed without the aid of a professional.

However, the larger the job, the more complicated the job, the more detailed the job, the further you travel from DIY and the closer you approach the need to hire the pros.  Larger jobs require larger machinery.  Operating something like a backhoe is not child’s play; it involves the very real possibility of being injured.  Dealing with local governments for permits and approvals requires an understanding of the process.  These are not things you can fake your way through; they involve detailed knowledge and they involve a safety factor which must be considered.

Cost and safety considerations.

And this really is the bottom line.  If you do not know how to operate large machinery, if you do not have the considerable time it takes to clear property and properly prepare a construction site, and if you are in the least bit nervous about being able to do the job correctly and safely, it is our recommendation that you hire the job out to a proven pro.  That may sound self-serving coming from a professional in the industry, but in good conscience it needs to be stated. We have seen far too many weekend warrior head to the emergency room of the local hospital because they took on a job which far exceeded their skills.
