There are many benefits of brush clearing and reasons as to why someone would want or need this service. In this article, we will be discussing all of the benefits more in-depth to show you the many reasons why we offer this service to our customers in Brevard and Volusia counties.
Benefit #1: Stay Safe From Wildfires
Wildfires in Florida can happen at any time during the year but are more prone to occur during hot and dry summers. Since Florida weather stays consistently warm, it creates a thriving environment for wildfires to begin and travel fast. Droughts and high temperatures can create fires that can devastate whole forests and even reach suburban areas if they are not controlled.
When you combine the droughts, temperatures, and a large amount of dead or dying plants in one area, you get the perfect recipe for a wildfire. Dead leaves, wood and other dry plant life give the fire the ability to continue to burn and devastate an area faster. By clearing out all of the excess debris from your yard, you will help yourself, and your neighbors stay safe in the event of a fire. A clean and clear yard lives little room for a fire to begin and travel.
Benefit #2: Maintenance
After clearing a large amount of debris from your yard, you will be able to maintain the area easier than before. For example, you may not have been able to access parts of your yard previously because of overgrown bushes, trees or other plant life which made it inaccessible for you to maintain.
Now that all of the overgrowths has been taken care of, you can easily keep future growth at bay and ensure that you maintain a clean and manicured yard.
Benefit #3: Invasive Plant Species
Florida is known for having its fair share of invasive animals and plants. Spotting an invasive plant may be hard if you don’t know what to look for. However, there are a few characteristics of invasive plants that can help you spot them in your yard, such as:
- plants that have overgrown over a short period
- plants that have taken over a large area in a short time
Need further help identifying these plants? Take the internet to determine which plants may or may not be invasive by researching what they look like. If you notice your property has invasive species of plants growing wild and free, it’s best to get care of before it is too late.
By taking out the invasive species, you stop the harmful plants from killing other plants in their path and spreading further into your yard and your neighbors. Invasive plants can quickly and easily grow out of control and take over property killing other plant life in their way.
Benefit #4: Land Usage Increases
With more open land, you can use it however you’d like. Not only does it make your property look beautiful, but it also gives you the room to utilize in ways such as:
- add an extension to your home
- add a pool
- lay down more grass
- add a shed
The possibilities are endless when you have the extra space. When you can add more to your property, you also increase its value, which can help you in the future when and if you decide to sell or rent out your home.
Benefit #5: Keep It Clean and Tidy
Another added benefit of brush clearing is having a beautiful looking yard. Well-kept landscape is something homeowners and buyers will pay a lot of money for. It shows that you take care of your home and the property surrounding it. Not all home buyers want a fixer-upper. By taking care of dead or dying plants and trees, you make your property and home more valuable to people who want things to be “move-in” ready. Even if you’re not putting your home on the market anytime soon, a beautiful yard will make your home look even nicer.
