Are you ready to take over the part of your property that has become a mess? Sometimes you get out of control when you decide to evacuate your overgrown land. You may think it's just about cutting down the trees and mowing the grass. Unfortunately, it is all too easy to allow some areas of your property to become overgrown and inaccessible. This is especially true for larger properties.
If you know what you're doing and have the right equipment, clearing overgrown land doesn't have to be difficult. This guide will tell you everything you need to know to easily clear your overgrown land:
1. Plan where you want to start clearing
By planning where to start clearing the overgrown land, it would be easier to project the results. You know the map of your backyard and can go through it to plan the best method for removing brush undergrowth. Make a note of all the trees that you plan to cut down and any areas that are heavily overgrown. Also, evaluate any areas of your garden that may be experiencing difficulties, such as: B. swampy or rough ground or overgrown with a fence entwined. Depending on the size of your clearing project, you should consider alternative methods such as: B. composting or renting a garbage container for garden waste. From soil and branches to shrubs and brushes, renting a dumpster is an easy way to get rid of an overgrown garden on your schedule.
2. Prepare your tools
Here are some tools you can use to clear your overgrown land:
- Machete: Many years ago, the use of Woodman's pal was a means of clearing land. When used properly, this type of machete is great for cutting down large weeds. If your garden is known to be home to large numbers of weeds that are resistant to pesticides or weed killers, you should invest in a durable machete.
- Brush cultivator: This practical tool can be used to remove small branches, stumps and other foreign objects. Attach it to a branch, attach it to your pickup truck or utility vehicle, and accelerate to clear the tree from the ground.
- Chainsaw: When it comes to clearing larger trees or groups of them, a chainsaw is stronger than an ax. So invest in a quality chainsaw that is designed for the type of job you will be doing.
You can use other tools – electric brush, weed eater, stub grinder, thread cutter, shovel, bow saw, pruning shears, rake, etc. Don't forget your gloves, eye protection, long sleeved shirts, pants, helmet, heavy-duty, and garbage bags. It is also important to use a sharpening stone to shape and sharpen your tools.
3. Get ready to clear overgrown land
If you're looking for the best way to remove brushes or overgrown shrubs, a wooded electric pusher or small electric hand brush and weed eater are your best friends. The slow size and lack of noise make them perfect for clearing large swathes of land that can take a while to reach the ground, especially when trying to clear brushes and small trees in an area with power lines or underground cables. Even if you're just trying to clear the last of the stubborn, overgrown shrubs from your property, small trees will speed the job because they aren't that heavy and lumpy.
4. Cut trees and branches
Next, trees and branches would be felled. If the tree you are about to cut is large, you should know how to cut trees and branches with a chainsaw. You should also not cut it too close to the edge where the root is, as this will weaken the core of the tree and eventually snap the branch into place.
5. Clean up
You will need a tiller or wheelbarrow to clear excess soil as you will have access to root areas where the grass grows thickest. First, remove any dead grass that may be on your lawn. Once dead grass has been removed, you can begin cleaning up the overgrown grass on your property. You will need a sprayer for this process as it is easier to control where the water goes than with a hose or rototiller. After spraying, you need to rake the soil very well to remove any clods of earth. The clods of earth can be removed by hand or with a device. Either way, you need to make sure the ground is level so that you don't have clumps of soil in which you have dead grass. Then add some fertilizer to the area.
The easiest way to clear the overgrown part of your land is to make sure you plan, have the right tools, and properly clear, cut and clean your land. Although the process is labor intensive, it would ensure that your land is well cared for and that you can get your pristine property back.
