Understanding the Building Demolition Process

When you're ready to get rid of an old or decaying eyesore on your property, such as an unused shed or dilapidated garage, you'll need to understand the demolition process so your project can be completed safely, successfully, and legally. Before pulling out your tools, you'll need to plan, prepare, and get permits for your building demolition.

Plan Your Demolition

Several factors affect the process of a building demolition, and to get started, a demolition company will assess your needs so they can develop a project plan. Your goal is to remove the building in the safest and most efficient way possible, and the plan will include how the demolition will be done and what equipment will be used to do it. Some of the different demolition methods available include deconstruction, implosion, excavation, and selective demolition. Your demolition plan will also consider how much debris will result, how it will be dispersed, and how long cleanup will take.

Get Permits and Prepare the Site

Because buildings alter the landscape around them and can have an effect on surrounding properties, the site will need to be assessed before any demolition can begin. After making a plan, your demolition company will obtain any necessary permits and then the site can be prepared. Preparing the site involves cleaning out anything that's inside, removing any utilities that run to or through it, and addressing any hazardous materials that may be present.

Building Demolition

Once you've planned, prepared, and obtained permits, the demolition can begin. If the previous steps have been carried out properly and professionally, your building demolition should be completed safely and quickly. Where an old, and possibly dangerous, building once stood, you'll soon have a cleared space to do with as you please.

Lawn Mower Safety

When it comes to backyard safety, lawn mowers are tools that need to be correctly used to avoid accidents and injuries. Watch this video to learn about lawn mower safety. When it's time to mow your lawn, always start by removing and sticks, stones, or other objects that could be caught in the blades. Also, wear long pants and closed-toe shoes, and children should never ride as passengers on riding mowers or be towed behind.

Yard Maintenance Tips for the Spring Season

Springtime weather and temperatures can be unpredictable, but one constant you'll find year after year is that spring is cleanup season. Tool and equipment rentals peak in March, April, and May, and with good reason: Ensuring a beautiful lawn and garden until winter begins with spring yard maintenance. You can use these tips to get started.

Pruning Trees and Shrubs

After a long, harsh, cold season, your landscaping is bound to have dead material in need of trimming. With pruners in hand, walk your property and keep an eye out for signs of frost damage on your trees and shrubs. For the best results and to stimulate new spring growth, trim back dead branches until you reach live stems. When grooming your hedges, use hand pruners rather than electric shears to cut the branches in a more natural way to allow air and sunlight to reach the shrub's interior.

Perennial Maintenance

To keep your perennial grasses and flowering plants in good condition, be sure to prune them back in the spring to allow new growth. Reduce your ornamental grasses to about 2-3 inches, and your flowering perennials to a height of 4-5 inches for optimal results. Once the soil has thawed, you can start thinning out crowded perennials by digging them up, dividing them, and leaving about three stems per clump.

Practicing Composting

There's no other time that you're likely to have as much yard waste as you will in the spring. Composting is an excellent way to dispose of your leaves, grass, and branches, and you'll also get a nutrient-rich soil additive for your efforts. Collect your yard waste into a pile, leaving out any weeds, and corral it in using a few sections of wire fence. For faster decomposition, chip branches and shred leaves into pieces no larger than ½".
