What happens when a gardening job becomes a full-blown megaproject? For those amongst us who own the larger acreages of a garden, we will have far more significant needs than just a shovel and a pickaxe… You will at some stage have to ask yourself, ARE LARGE EARTHWORKS SOMETHING THAT I SHOULD UNDERTAKE MYSELF?
If you do, you will have to ask yourself questions like, have I got the time? And, do I really feel confident enough to take this type of work on?
If the answer is yes, then you will have to consider hiring machinery. Do you even know what type of plant you will need?
There are dumpers, standard dumpers, swivel skip dumpers, highway dumpers. Then there are bulldozers, scrapers, towed scrapers, wheel tractor scrapers and elevating scrapers. And what about Graders and Tractor Shovels… The choice is endless and will depend on factors such as…
The quantity of material to be moved.
The type and condition of the soil and the site.
The distance to be moved.
The speed and turn-around time required.
The size of the excavating bucket.
Would you ever be sure that the substrate of the land will be safe and firm for years to come after removal?
Using a professional excavation company will safeguard that the soil and substrates are perfect for your requirements. They will have the experience and make sure that water drains off, ensuring that siltation and erosion are not an issue. Damage constraint in the surrounding areas will be guaranteed. The process would be quick and efficient, causing the least inconvenience and damage to any type of ground.
Removal of large rocks, tree stumps and clay cause a lot of problems. Professional Earthworks/Groundwork companies will have the exact tools and knowledge needed to tackle any problem… In this respect, experienced engineers are the best option on difficult ground.
D.I.Y. may be cheaper, but a specialized company will carry will shoulder the responsibility and carry insurance. This is of real importance as a myriad of things can (and do) go wrong.
