How to clean a patio before you build It is something that can be tedious, but that we have to do so that a work can be executed without problems later. Since Facades World we will be collaborating with our colleagues from Escabia2 Team in the construction of your own home, so this time we are going to show you everything to do to leave a patio in conditions to be able to build ... Let's start!
How to clean a very dirty patio
Being able to remove all the elements that you are not going to reuse for construction and that are present in the patio is of the utmost importance. If you think about how to clean a patio before building The first thing you would have to do is gather the elements that you can burn by making a small fire. In this case Leo de Escabia2 Team He gathered the woods that were in the patio, cut them into small pieces and together with the leaves and the charcoal that were in the patio generated a small fire. From our website we suggest that do not leave flammable elements near the fire so that the burning is controlled and is not harmful to the environment around us.
Why do we start by burning the available elements? Very simple, we will save ourselves the work of having to throw in a dump truck or throw elements that can be reduced in this way. So if you have to clean a patio before doing a work, we suggest you do this method.
The next step we should do is remove all the elements that we are not going to use and cannot be burned outside the house. These elements can be old tiles, iron and even stones that are in the place. In this video you can see how our friends from Escabia2 Team clean the yard of the future work they are going to carry out. Let's see…
How to break a concrete floor in a patio
After having removed all the invasive elements that were in the courtyard of Escabia2 Team they decided to break the floor and then with a dirt truck the floor could be leveled. On this occasion, you will surely ask yourself, do I have to take something into account before starting to bite? The answer is yes, you can't start stinging like a caveman left and right. If you know the owner of the place where you are going to build or if he has plans of the house better than better, you must see something very important, the water and gas pipes. If we know what installation goes under our patio, we will avoid an accident and pipe breakages that later cause greater damage.
Once we are sure that pipes do not run under our patio, if we can prepare to crush the cement with the help of a mass or element of great resistance that allows breaking the cement mix that was used. We can also help ourselves with a shovel, preferably a tip to be able to make cuts if necessary. The advantage of the shovel is that it allows us to insert it into much smaller grooves making it possible to lift pieces of cement with great ease.
So they can see how to clean a patio before building as our friends from Escabia2 Team did, we leave you with this new video where you can see step by step how they chopped the floor and leveled it to make it optimal for building. Let's see…
Cleaning a yard with debris
As we had seen in the previous video what our friends from Escabia2 Team It was breaking the patio floor to later be able to level it. What consequences does this have? The main one is that we need a dump truck to be able to dump the accumulated debris and we can also use it to dump items that we could not burn or simply throw them away in garbage bags.
Using a dump truck to clean the debris from our work offers us several advantages that will help us clean our patio before the work we carry out. Among the advantages we find that it allows us to have:
- A better hygiene of the place since the residues are contained, preventing them from spreading and even spilling unwanted liquids.
- Flexibility in the times since we can manage the filling times at the rate in which we can fill it and work.
- Fractionation of cargo since we can store the waste according to an immediate withdrawal and we do not have to leave materials on the public road.
When you have to clean a yard before building What you have to keep in mind is that on Fridays at the end of the daily work it is usually celebrated with a work barbecue. It does not require large grills of material to be able to enjoy a good time with your co-workers. In the video below you can see Iago and Leo from Escabia2 Team closing their workweek that is taking shape and they are in a position to start building their own house. We leave you with this beautiful process that you are doing.
How to cut down a tree in the garden
If the tree is small and its roots have not clung to the ground, it will be easy to uproot or perhaps dig it up. But what if that is no longer possible? When the specimen of our scabia2 friends is a certain size and the roots cling to the ground, the chainsaw can be your only ally. It is true that first you have to know how to use it. To get started, evaluate the logging risks. If you are sure that there is no danger of throwing the tree on top of the house or any other structure, you can proceed with its demolition. If not, it is better to slow down and ask an expert for advice.
To cut a garden tree we must start by preparing the trunk. We eliminate the low branches, knots or parts of the bark that may bother us and then we carry out the direction cut. How do you do it? We point with the chainsaw the direction of fall chosen previously. Make a horizontal cut, no more than a quarter or a fifth of the total diameter of the log. Then make this cut coincide with another diagonally (it should go about 45º). The resulting wedge, known as a steering cut, will help the tree follow the desired path.
Our friends sneaky they needed to remove the tree as soon as possible to start their remodeling works. What prevented them from being able to cut it optimally since they used many resources to be able to unearth it. They used both a chainsaw and an ax and handsaw. It took them a little longer than expected but they managed to bring it down. Let's see how it went.
How to cut down a tree in the garden - Part 2
Finally our friends from sneaky They were able to remove the branches and the main trunk of the tree, but the most difficult part remained. The roots of the tree became too attached to the ground. With the help of the ax, they transformed the tree into firewood and ordered the vast majority of the patio. The last step remains, let's see ...
How to cut down a tree in the garden - Part 3
As we had anticipated, the last part of the tree pruning remains. For this our friends from Scabies They made a hole that was wide enough to be able to remove the base of the tree with the help of the ax they bought and a pointed shovel that allows the hole to be optimally made. If we observe the video Leo from Scabia2 Team began to hit the roots that contained the edges of the tree trunk and in that way next to the well they could completely remove the tree so that the yard before building stay in top condition.
