Let’s talk about brush mowing.

What are brush mowing services?

The term “brush mowing services” is fairly self-explanatory.  Before any construction job is begun, the land must be cleared of brush and vegetation, as well as large rocks and even old structures.  A brush mowing company will come in and, using a machine called a brush hog, or a bush hog, will cut down all brush which might be an impediment to the job.

These companies are used for virtually all construction jobs, from the creation of a ranch road to something as detailed as pipeline mowing and line-of-sight clearing.

What do brush mowing services cost?

This may, at first, seem like a rather simple task, one which any property owner could handle on their own, but that would be a mistake to think that. Heavy brush requires heavy machinery, and the operation of that machinery is dangerous and requires a trained professional.  It may sound self-serving for us to say that, since this is work we perform, but it is the truth.  Far too many accidents happen yearly, some deadly, because people who are not trained for such tasks decide to tackle them, and the results are sadly predictable.

The cost of such services will vary greatly depending on where you are located.  If we were forced to give an estimate, we would say $75-$100 per hour, but there may be additional costs added on depending upon the amount of debris which must be removed, whether or not it will be necessary to haul the brush away, and the distance travelled to the job site.

How to find the best brush hogging services.

There are two things you can do to secure a good brush hogging company. First, meet with various company representatives, and ask them for references . . . and then follow up and check on those references. Secondly, ask around with local governments and businesses which have had clearing jobs done for them.  They will be happy to share their recommendations with you.  Word spreads quickly about good companies, just as it does about bad companies.

Those are the basics about brush mowing services.  Do your due diligence, ask the right questions, and don’t rush into a decision.  Your money is important to you, and having the job done right might require a bit of time spent, by you, in finding the right company.
