Difference between Land Clearing and Land Grading
If you’re not sure what exactly land clearing entails, don’t worry, we’re here to help!
Land clearing basically involves preparing the land for construction. This usually includes removing vegetation, large rocks, as well as leveling the ground. The land clearing service will first perform a land survey and give an estimate.
While you may be able to remove bushes and small vegetation without the help of professionals, we definitely recommend hiring a team of professional if tree removal is required. Oftentimes the construction site consists of heavily forested area for which tree clearing has to be done at a large scale. Land clearing also help to identify where your property lines lie, which can be hard to figure out when the area is densely populated with trees.
In short, to prepare land for a construction project you need to remove everything from it, level the clear land, and then proceed to land grading.
The final stage in the process of land clearing is land grading. This procedure guarantees that the soil is level and stable, preventing erosion and ensuring effective drainage. Other activities, such as constructing an access road, connecting to utilities, digging a foundation or basement, or razing existing structures may be required depending on the state of the land.
Land Excavation vs Land Clearing
If you plan to build a structure that has a foundation or basement, you’ll definitely need to excavate. Sometimes, excavation is also necessary to turn the land into a garden, pasture, or farmland.
With excavation, the cost also largely depends on the size of your project area. The depth of the excavation also affects the price. Shallow excavations are less expensive than deep excavations.
How much do land clearing companies charge
Cost estimates for site preparation will vary depending on total square foot area, number and size of trees, underground utilities and root system, removal of trees and stump removal to name a few. Number of dump trucks, excavators, and loaders used for debris removal can all add up and increase the cost. Land clearing services usually quote their prices per foot or per acre area, so the amount of land contributes majorly in the price factor.
On average, however, land clearing services cost between $125 and $200 per hour. In some cases, you may be able to find a flat rate quote based on the total size of your project. These land clearing prices are only meant to serve as a guide, for an accurate quote, feel free to contact land clearing services of your area.
