What is lot clearing?

Lot clearing is fairly self-explanatory, one of those terms which really do not need clarification.  A lot of land is needed for a project, whether that project be a shed, a home, a pasture, barn, pipeline outbuilding, whatever.  Before the construction can begin, the lot must be cleared of all obstacles, and those obstacles may include brush, trees, large rocks, or even small structures.  How that is accomplished will be looked at in the next section of this article.

How is lot clearing accomplished?

If a lot simply needs to have overgrown grass and brush cleared, the job can be done with a tractor mower and an attachment called a brush hog. If the lot has small trees on it, large rocks, or other impediments/obstacles, it might be necessary to bring in a bulldozer, front-loader, or other large machinery. Then, with everything cleared from the property, it will have to be carried away using dump trucks.

The cost and how it is determined.

So far, the information provided has been fairly straightforward and easy to understand.  Discussing lot clearing cost is a bit more complicated.

Some companies base their price bid upon an hourly rate. Some bid a lump sum based upon a number of factors. Those factors may include the cost of transportation to the job site, the cost of operating large machinery, and the cost of labor to perform the job required.  However, also in play is the competition in the area. In an area with many commercial mowing services available, the Laws of Supply and Demand will help to establish a consistent price range for mowing jobs.  In other words, all things being equal, the prices quoted should be fairly consistent within a certain geographical area.  The particular market will establish the price charged.

How can you find out the cost of your particular lot clearing? Call around and ask for job quotes.  It will not take long before you will find that cost medium, and then you can choose from the company which feels right to you.  For further peace of mind, we recommend you seek out reviews and recommendations from others in your area who have already used a local lot clearing company.  Past jobs completed are usually good indicators of the quality of job you can expect from any company.
