Owning a large plot of land offers homeowners the opportunity to embrace the beauty of natural scenery, right in their own backyard. However, sometimes Mother Nature needs a little help. When left completely unattended, brush and overgrowth can quickly take over a property, diminishing its aesthetic appeal.
If you’re trying to decide if clearing away brush and unwanted foliage makes sense for your land, it’s important to remember that there’s a fine line between rustic charm and complete green space chaos. Here are four valid reasons to consider putting a brush clearing day on your schedule as soon as possible:
Yes, really. Many homeowners are surprised at how much money they save managing the brush and foliage in its infancy stages rather than allowing it to grow to unruly heights. As a general rule of thumb: the bigger the job, the bigger your bill. Managing your overgrowth in smaller increments as needed offers a significant cost savings throughout the ownership of your property.
Rural elements like trees, shrubs, and woods can offer a multitude of functional and visual advantages. From establishing a property line to providing a shady place to relax, there are many benefits to leaving some plantings alone in your yard. However, when not maintained, trees and bushes can eventually die, rotting away where they are planted and impacting things growing around them. Clearing away unwanted growth eliminates dead vegetation and cleans up the property to better define your outdoor spaces and establish a landscaping baseline for future yard and garden projects.
Extensive brush and overgrowth not only looks terrible – it can also prove really challenging to maneuver through. As the brush gets more expansive, you may find it difficult to walk (or motor) around your property. Additionally, unmaintained plants are likely to take over other elements on your land such as paths, brooks, streams, and hills. Eliminating unnecessary vegetation optimizes accessibility to your entire property and helps you further diversify the look and layout of your landscapes.
Having excessing growth and vegetation can actually prove a fire hazard for you and your family, particularly in the hot, dry summer months. Brush is essentially kindling for forest and wildfires. A single blaze can spread rampantly, devouring everything in its path in flames. Don’t risk your backyard igniting a fire that can damage your and your neighbors’ homes. Cutting back the brush can instantly reduce the chance of your property becoming fuel during the dry season.
