With the cost of real estate in New Hampshire, it only makes sense for homeowners to make the most use out of their yards.
Yard expansions and lawn installations are services that we perform frequently for residential clients, and also landscape contractors as part of our landscaping support services.
Lot clearing. While we do place a high value on trees in New Hampshire, too many trees can be problematic in the home landscape. They may provide too much shade to grow grass, drop acorns or fill up the gutters with leaves. But don’t ask a logging company which trees you should take out – they would probably say “all of them!” The first step to expanding your yard is to consult with Sarette and Son Excavation about the tree removal. We can advise you on which trees, you should take out, while still maintaining the wooded beauty of your lot.
Stump removal. If your yard expansion plan includes a lawn installation, you should always remove the stumps. Burying stumps can invite termites and create sinkholes in your new lawn. Occasionally, we can find a place to dispose of stump debris on the lot – provided it is far enough away from the house and lawn – saving our clients the fees associated with trucking and stump removal.
Site leveling. House lots in New Hampshire are rarely flat. Clearing out a section of woods exposes the native landscape which will need to be matched to the existing grade. Sometimes this involves tearing down and sloping land for proper watershed; other times clean fill may need to be brought in to build it up. This is why Sarette Excavation is a great value in yard expansions. We have the heavy equipment and landscape materials to do the best job possible in a cost-effective way.
Lawn installation and hydroseeding. With your new yard opened up and leveled, it’s time for some grass! We can provide a full 4 inches of topsoil, grading and hydroseeding services. Or, we can simply provide material delivery of the correct amount of screened loam for your landscaper, or you and your wheelbarrow!
Estimates are always free. Call us today to begin planning your yard expansion project!
