Brush hogging your fields, farm land, and acreages is the best way to keep the land clear of weeds, roots, and other invasive species that can prevent the growth of grass or other desired plant life. Red Hills Landworks has the experience and tools to quickly and efficiently brush hog your land to keep it beautiful and productive.
What Is Brush Hogging?
Brush hogs are powerful rough mowers pulled by tractors. They’re designed with deep, durable blades that cut through brush growth and weeds. Whether you want to turn a field into a pasture, prepare farm land for planting, clear land for commercial use, or just want your property to look nicer and be easier to maintain, brush hogging is the solution.
Can I just use a finishing mower?
Many people hope to be able to brush hog using a standard finishing mower. Unfortunately, finishing mowers are not suited to this task for several reasons. First, their blades are not designed for the strain caused by thick brush. Blades meant for grass are thin and will bend, break, and fly loose if they’re damaged by plant life they aren’t designed to cut. Second, thick brush can often clog finishing mowers. Not only does this cause delays in the work, but it requires cleaning and potentially expensive repairs. Even worse, clearing out clogged blades can be dangerous if attempted by someone who isn’t experienced with the task. Finally, the smaller blades on a finishing mower won’t get nearly as deep as a brush hog’s blades. This means that finishing mowers leave behind more brush and plant life that will choke out your grass and have your fields looking uncared for. When you consider that this less effective method also takes significantly longer, it becomes clear that finishing mowers aren’t suited to the task. Brush hogging requires proper equipment operated by experts who can do it safely.
Benefits of Brush Hogging
If you take care of your land, your land will take care of you. Regular brush hogging, even on active pastures with animals feeding on them, is a good idea. Brush hogging will prevent the growth and spread of weeds that can reduce feeding areas and cause a variety of problems.
- Weeds compete for nutrients with the grasses and plants you actually want growing on your land. This decreases the value of your pastures and negatively impacts the beauty of your property.
- Without regular maintenance, fields, pastures, and other large areas of land will quickly turn into overgrown forests. When this happens, clearing the land becomes much more expensive than preventative brush hogging would have been.
- If you’re trying to grow food, flowers, or other crops, brush hogging makes your fields much healthier by keeping them clear of competing plant life. Also, brush hogging turns invasive weeds into soil nutrients that feed your desired plants.
Don’t put off taking care of your land. Brush hogging today will keep your land looking nicer and make it more affordable to maintain long-term. Give us a call to find out more.
Brush Hog or Bush Hog?
We often get asked about the difference between brush hogs and Bush Hogs. People want to know whether there’s a difference and which name is more accurate. Bush Hog is actually a brand name for machines designed for brush hogging. Usually, using either name will get your point across, but brush hog is more commonly used.
Roadside mowing is about more than just keeping roads looking nice. There are many public safety benefits to keeping well maintained roadsides. Wild plant growth along roads makes important road sings harder to see, causing potentially dangerous situations. A Stop sign or Yield sign that isn’t clearly visible to drivers is an invitation to major traffic accidents. Even obscured speed limit signs can cause problems if drivers are unaware of appropriate speeds for local areas and upcoming turns, stops, and traffic pattern changes. Wild growth along roadways can also make sidewalks and pedestrian areas difficult to navigate, resulting in hazards to citizens and people walking too close to roads.
