If you’re a homeowner or developer in Maryland, you’ll likely need land clearing services at some point to get your property looking just how you want it.
These land clearing services can involve relatively simple acts like mowing and brush clearing to the more involved clearing of trees and removing of tree stumps.
What can be just as important as the “what” is the “how”, as in how is environmental preservation kept in mind? For some companies, these land clearing services are about getting the job done without regard for the health of the actual land.
Given that this land does need to support your future landscaping needs, we believe that keeping the environment in mind – while still doing the job at a fair price and on schedule – is important.
So, is it possible to clear the land in an environmental way? We believe so, and we are big proponents of the idea. Here are a few ways to know you’ve found land clearing services that keep the environment in mind.
Figure Out The Kind Of Service You’re Looking For
Land clearing services are a catch-all. They can include removals, stump grinding, and more. By knowing first what kind of service you need done, you’ll have a better starting point for talking to service providers.
From there, you should also have some details about the land you’re looking to have cleared, as well as what you’re hoping to do with it. Even if you can’t reveal the plans, be able to share some information so your land clearing services provider can share how they’d approach the project. From there, you’ll have a sense of the ways environmental preservation is being kept in mind.
Look Up What Kinds Of Green Approaches Can Be Taken
With more information on how you’ll have your land cleared, you can start to understand how environmental preservation can play a part.
In some cases, maybe it’s a way of extracting a tree stump that is less damaging to the soil around it. In others, it may be that the machinery used involves green methods or green technology.
As you start to speak with companies, ask if they can fulfill the kinds of ideas you’ve generated in your research. You can also cross-reference between companies to understand why some offer the solution, and others don’t. If it’s a lack of familiarity, see if they’re open to the process.
Find The Overlap Between What’s Offered By Companies And Research
Some developments that lead to sustainable land clearing include mulching machines that don’t attack roots, washers that don’t require burning, and compost-creation options.
Once you’ve found land clearing services in Maryland that can help you with your project, see how their methods align with what you’ve found. If they don’t offer a specific solution, ask more generally how they could prioritize environmental preservation with your project.
Ask For Accreditation and Certification
It’s important to know a land clearing services provider can walk the walk. If what they are telling you about the tools they use sounds good, it’s worth verifying this with a third party.
One way would be asking for accreditation or certification for their methods. If they offer services that are environmentally friendly, they may also have additional licenses or qualifications.
A company may also be considering a certification or in the process of applying.
Check Testimonials From Other Clients
There are many forms client testimonials can take. From Google Business reviews to word-of-mouth referrals, these help to give you an idea of how the land clearing services provider works with their customers.
With regard to environmental preservation, though, it’s important to make sure that you’re speaking with clients who’ve ordered the same services you’re considering. Ask the company if you can speak briefly with a former client to get all your questions answered.
