When you need to undergo a construction project whether big or small, chances are you will likely need a land clearing. Also known as an earth moving project, this is considered important because it is the first step in making sure that your site is fully prepped and stable enough for a proper building/home. If you’re curious as to how this process works, you’re in luck because we here at Mondo EX would like to talk about this process in detail so you know exactly what you’re getting into.
What Do They Do?
In simplest terms, a land clearing cuts away vegetation that would otherwise get in the way of your construction, as well as any large rocks from the land. Stuff like trees and bushes are large obstacles when you want to build something and even if you think a tree isn’t actually in the way of your site, chances are its roots can interfere with further construction down the road. Professionals will make sure that any and all obstructions are removed and dealt with properly.
The next step in this process involves grading the property. In this part of the project, the site is leveled a certain way in order to maximize efficiency and durability. This essentially means that the site is prepped so it can avoid issues such as drainage problems & erosion. In some cases, installing septic systems will be a part of the process.
How Much Does It Cost?
Coming up with an accurate estimate for this kind of service is complicated, as every situation is different. The price of this service will depend on certain things such as the size of your plot, how many obstructions there are (trees, rocks, bushes etc.), the level of the land and which company you end up working with.
On average, however, land grading usually costs anywhere from five to ten dollars per square foot. When your land has trees that need to be removed, the price is heftier (usually a few hundred dollars per acre). Certain bushes, trees and rocks may be more difficult to remove than others, which will also mean that the price can go up due to the work that needs to be put in. If you want a more accurate estimate, contacting the professionals you intend on working with is the best way to do so.
