Land Clearing Techniques

Cut and Grind 

The area is cleaned of decomposed trees, excessive weeds, and overgrown plantation. Dead trees, rotting stumps, and dangerous root systems are turned into mulch and layered on top of the soil.

Pushover (Bulldozing)

A simple method of land clearing that involves pushing over obstacles on the land is the Pushover method. It’s great for small patches of property. Bulldozing also smooths and spades the ground for working or building. Bulldozers push mounds of soil, sand, rubble, and other materials that can get in the way or are difficult to remove. This method loosens tight, knotted roots and dirt.


This technique involves pulling ground structures attached to machinery with chains.

Yard Grading

Yard grading is an excavation service that levels the land. If the earth you are working with contains uneven piles of dirt, yard grading provides a good, smooth surface for a project to begin.

Your needs may include a flat surface for construction, or you may want a sloped area to build a rock wall or irrigation system for gardening. Both are great options for your yard cultivation plan.

In-Depth Excavation provides solutions to your yard’s transformation with landscape grading services.
