5 Reasons You May Need Your Land Cleared

When embarking on a new construction project, it is necessary to clear the land thoroughly before starting. This includes the complete removal of all foliage on the site, including trees, bushes, and shrubs.

This can be a rather arduous task and requires land-clearing services in Auckland.

Let us review the reasons you might want to have your site cleared. 

1) Land Use 

If you have a property that is overgrown with foliage and would like it to be better utilised, clearing it is necessary before any work can start. By clearing the land, you can open the door for it to be used for the construction of new structures. 

2) Healthy Growth 

You might not have any desire to build something on a particular piece of property, but you may want to merely tidy up excess foliage growth. By clearing the land, you can get the property ready for more controlled landscaping and ensure that it is kept healthy and beautiful. Moreover, clearing the land of excessive growth can help prevent the spread of disease among plants. 

3) Health And Safety 

In some cases, excessive overgrowth, fallen dead trees, and other hazards might pose a health and safety risk to surrounding neighbourhoods. Such overgrowth could harbour pests like rats, who breed in the underbrush. Removing these safe havens for pests will reduce their numbers in the area. Moreover, fallen or dead trees could pose a safety risk to those venturing onto the property. It is best to have the property cleared to ensure the health and safety of all.

4) Aesthetics 

An excessively overgrown and unkempt property can be an eyesore. To enhance the aesthetic appeal of the property, clearing it completely is often the best way to start. An improved aesthetic appeal can also help to increase the value of the property. It goes a long way for potential buyers to see the land already cleared and ready for development. 

5) Fire 

Wherever there is an excessive amount of foliage, there is the risk of a fire breaking out and spreading quickly. Overgrown and unkempt lots tend to have a lot of dead and dry material collected on the ground, which can act as kindling should there be a spark to ignite it. Cleaning the land will remove this threat.
