From forestry mulching to land clearing to erosion control to hydro-seeding we are prepared with modern, top of the line equipment to get the job done and reclaim your property (and weekends!)
Hydroseeding: Simply, it’s an efficient, high quality, and inexpensive method of seeding a lawn. Technically, it’s the process of combining a mixture called a “slurry” (seed, mulch, fertilizer, soil amendments, and water) in a Hydroseeder tank, and then applying that mixture to the intended surface using high pressure. The hydroseeder keeps the slurry evenly mixed. This causes speedy seed germination and stops erosion in its tracks! In the best scenarios, a new lawn will start to sprout in only a week, but in most cases, it will take 2-3 weeks to germinate. You will typically see sprouting in 1 to 2 weeks.
Land Clearing: Land clearing is not for the faint of heart. Land clearing involves, at various points, clearing brush, cutting down and hauling away large trees, digging up rocks, filling in large holes with dirt, smoothing furrows and hills, removing shrubs and small trees, and either burning, grinding, or otherwise removing the leftover stumps.
In order to accomplish all of these tasks, you will need:
Chainsaw, with multiple chains
Additionally, you will need enormous amounts of free time.
When you hire a land clearing company, you get your land cleared by professionals who are licensed to operate heavy machinery, are used to the type of work involved, and who have a team ready to accomplish your project in a short amount of time. Save yourself a lot of trouble: hire a land clearing professional.
Lots of times it is hard to see the vision for a property while it is still overgrown and un-used, but often there are plenty of opportunities to further add value and functionality right under your nose. Schedule a site visit with one of our specialists and let us walk you through the possibilities to make your property become more manageable, enjoyable, and valuable.
Forestry Mulching: Forestry mulching is a land clearing method by which undesirable vegetation - trees, brush and stumps - are ground into mulch by a "Forestry Mulcher". The mulch is distributed as evenly as possible over the entire cutting area. This slows initial re-growth of undesirable vegetation, prevents erosion, and replenishes the topsoil. Unlike other land and lot clearing methods, forestry mulching leaves no brush piles to burn, bury or haul off. There is no stripped and scarred land to erode away every time it rains. Damage to the trees you would like to keep is greatly reduced because forestry mulching protects the vital topsoil layer and delicate feeder roots. With these tools we are able to selectively clear areas, leaving desirable trees and vegetation unharmed. After the land is cleared with a Forestry Mulcher, the mulch left behind acts as an excellent method of erosion control. This is especially ideal around lakes, rivers, creeks and Water Management areas that are very restrictive in their land and lot clearing laws. In fact, rarely is any type of permit or additional erosion control required. The landowner is left with a fresh carpet of mulch, which naturally decomposes into nutrient enriched topsoil. Most importantly with Forestry Mulching, your job gets done faster, looks more appealing and is more cost effective than doing it yourself!
