Preparing a site for construction requires several steps to provide a contractor with an area ready for building. Of primary importance is the realization that contractors have a set schedule for project completion. We know that each step must be completed in a timely manner. The use of special tools and the latest state-of-the-art equipment is also necessary to provide the best result. Our Florida site preparation team knows how to clear your site quickly and efficiently. You may need a site prepared for either new construction or sale. Our team uses safe, fast, and environmentally friendly site preparation tools and equipment. We follow these key steps to successfully prepare your site.
Tree Cutting and Stump Removal
Professional tree removal companies clear your site of unwanted trees. Some trees can be left in place or trimmed to be included in the landscaping for your project. Once the trees are cut, they can be cut into manageable lengths for firewood. If you prefer, they can be ground into woodchips to use in landscaping. Alternatively, the wood can be removed from the site as either logs or wood chips.
Getting rid of stumps and roots is an important part of site preparation. If left in the ground, the decaying organic matter may threaten the foundation of buildings, cause erosion, or change the soil level of the site. Shifting soil levels can mean areas used for walkways and outdoor terraces may end up with broken or uneven surfaces.
Tree stumps are usually removed with heavy excavating equipment that either pulls or pushes the stumps out. Then the stumps are either ground up for mulch or hauled away. Another way is to grind the stump into the soil and then fill the hold with the wood chips from the grinding and soil. Your professional site prepares will determine the best option for your site. They will also consider the type of tree stumps. Some deciduous trees may grow back from an untouched tree stump. Tree stump removal prevents potential future problems, such mower damage and insect infestations.
Brush and Undergrowth Removal
Clearing away brush and undergrowth is the next step in the site preparation process. After the large trees have been removed from the site, our site preparation professionals will remove brush, undergrowth, and other undesirable vegetation. You may wish to leave a thin layer of plants and grass to prevent erosion if your property slopes. Brush and undergrowth can be ground up as mulch. Weeds, however, should be removed to prevent regrowth. If you wish, all brush, weeds, and undergrowth can be removed and disposed of off-site.
Grading and Leveling
If the land slopes, it may be necessary to grade or level the ground for building. The site may require special measure for erosion prevention and drainage control prior to construction beginning. Additionally, there may be large rocks that need to be removed or moved. We will work with you to determine entrance and egress areas and make sure they are free of any impediments.
