Orlando Land Clearing; Save Time & Money

When it comes to Central Florida land clearing, grading, and preparing your site for construction, there are several different methods. 

Do you know which one is best for your project? What rules and regulations does your project need to adhere to when it comes to water runoff, land clearing, or stormwater distribution? Will your project need specific equipment? What about utilities, are their existing lines underground and will you need lines dug? Where do you start? 

Most often then not, it is time and cost that most commercial and residential projects look at when they choose a company to prepare your property. 

Having the right equipment is the quickest and most cost effective way to get the job done right. Sure, you can go in and bulldoze trees and bushes over, but that doesn’t kill them and you are left with uneven soil. They can also easily damage trees you want to save. For this a skid-steer tractor with hydraulic shears is needed. 

Next the property will need to be graded, removing underbrush, plants, and rocks. This process prepares the property for buildings, parking lots, streets, driveways, playgrounds, and storm drains. The equipment needed are skid loader and backhoes

Silt fencing may be necessary, this is when a geo-textile fabric is used as a temporary barrier. This prevents erosion during site clearing phase of the project, it also prevents waste and debris from reaching other properties. Unfortunately, they are susceptible to breaking down due to weather and needs maintenance.

Cost of Land Clearing In Orlando & Kissimmee

Land grading is especially important here in Central Florida, it is the process of leveling the surface of the ground for a new construction or to correct drainage problems or stop soil erosion. It takes heavy equipment to properly carry out the process. 

The cost of land grading can vary depending on a few factors

Accessibility and Size 

If there are many trees, rocks, and/or debris that need to be removed, there are obstacles that make it difficult to reach the property, and the land is extensive, it will end up costing more. But having the right team and heavy machinery, will ensure the job is done properly and at a good price. 

Terrain and Soil 

If the terrain has lots of mature trees and is rocky, it will take longer to remove everything down to the roots. If there are any slops, it may be necessary to bring in dirt to level them out, which may add to the cost. 


Erosion control and drainage are especially important here in Central Florida. This process can entail moving dirt from one place to another, having dirt brought in, and grading machinery. 

It may sound pretty straight forward, but there is a lot that goes into clearing a piece of property. For instance, water run off and drainage. Removing all the trees and rocks, then flattening out the soil for houses and a playground, easy enough. But what happens when it rains every afternoon, it becomes one big mud puddle. Central Florida has an array of terrains and different soil types. All these factors go into clearing the land, along with a good understanding of excavation.

Terrain and Soil

It is typical to remove dirt and have it hauled away to level out a slope and/or fill dirt may need to be brought in to ensure the property is level.
