You may have neglected property that you own or a part of your house and now it has grown wildly. Even though it seems like a tangled mess now it can still be rectified. Clearing overgrown land does not have to be hard work. If you have the right tools, mindset and dedicate enough time to it this can be a simple job and it won’t take too much time.

What are you going to do with the land?

You must decide what you are going to do with the land before you start clearing it. This is because some areas may not have to be cleared if you want to use it as a garden or if you want to use it as a football field then some areas may require more attention. If you want to build things like pathways then you will need specific materials and tools.

If you want to make pathways for people to walk on then you will have to focus on things like stump removal. If you want to do this cheaply and also avoid a lot of physical labor you can burn it, all you need to do is to drill holes in it, fill them with potassium nitrate and pour hot water until the potassium nitrate dissolves and then put scrap wood over it and burn it. After that you only need to fill the hole left behind with soil.

If you want to build a football field or maybe a swimming pool on this land then you may have to focus on tree removal. You should hire professionals who do a safe and efficient job and will do it within the allotted time frame they give. You do not want to get delayed with fixing your land because they fail to do their job within the timeframe they promised you. Once the tree falls then it must be cleared, this can be done by using an ax, the branches should be cut from the bottom of the tree to the top.

Deal with the grass

Since the grass has grown a lot it can be a bit difficult to deal with. It may not be possible to use a riding lawn mower because the grass may be too tall and also there maybe too many unseen objects. You can get a brush mower that will deal well with tangled grass and it will cut almost anything. This will make the ground look very tidy and neat. If the land is cleared of debris really well then dealing with the grass will be easier.
