When it comes to main­tain­ing your land­scape, not every­thing can be done by hand — some­times, more pow­er­ful equip­ment is called for. And yet, even machin­ery like stan­dard lawn­mow­ers strug­gle to cut down every inch of a land­scape. Shrub and tree limbs, par­tial trunks, dense, tall grass, rocks, stones, and root balls, for instance, must be removed in a dif­fer­ent way. Trac­tors and bush hogs (also called brush hogs) are designed to clear heavy brush and stub­born mate­r­i­al from a lawn for aes­thet­ic and prac­ti­cal rea­sons. At The Budd Group, our land­scape main­te­nance ser­vices include trac­tor and bush hog work for all types of com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial properties.

How Bush Hog­ging Works

A bush or brush hog is a piece of machin­ery that attach­es to a trac­tor or high-pow­ered mow­er via a three-point hitch. The trac­tor or mow­er pro­vides the pow­er that allows the hog’s rotary blades to spin. Unlike mow­er blades, bush hog blades are dull and placed on hinges so they can over­pow­er and remove thick growth with­out get­ting stuck or dam­aged. Before use, the bush hog should be care­ful­ly inspect­ed and cleaned. The oper­a­tor must then decide when and where to drop the hog — unlike a stan­dard lawn­mow­er, a bush hog doesn’t hov­er just above the ground at all times. Our oper­a­tors work effi­cient­ly but method­i­cal­ly, mak­ing sure that we remove the great­est amount of unwant­ed growth in a sin­gle motion.

Why is Bush Hog­ging Necessary?

As pre­vi­ous­ly men­tioned, bush or brush hog­ging allows pro­fes­sion­al land­scap­ers to remove unwant­ed dense growth where a stan­dard mow­er would fail or break down. One might seek these ser­vices for a num­ber of rea­sons. Land that has been neglect­ed for a long time might be rid­dled with over­grown shrubs, roots, grass, and weeds — bush hog­ging can effi­cient­ly clear these ele­ments away. A busi­ness might also decide to expand its land­scape and/​or use it for dif­fer­ent pur­pos­es. Or, a prop­er­ty might require light bush hog work as part of its rou­tine main­te­nance and land­scape debris removal efforts. What­ev­er the case, clear­ing away over­grown limbs, dead land, obstruc­tive rocks, etc. helps the lawn breathe and grow more eas­i­ly, poten­tial­ly aid­ing the landscape’s ecosys­tem and enhanc­ing a lawn’s appearance.

Dane Slaughter, Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District

I have worked with The Budd Group since 2011, and I have been very pleased and impressed with their staff, account managers, and regional support they provide. They have been very prompt to respond if there is an issue with the janitorial services. They provide an exceptional service and understand the importance of greeting our passengers and guests to allow them to have a wonderful experience when traveling. I view their service as a partnership and count on them daily to deliver exceptional quality to our tenants, passengers, staff, and business partners.

Guy Harley, Wake Forest University Health Sciences

The Budd Group provides exceptional custodial services for our campus. We are grateful for their service to our patients, families, visitors, staff and faculty for over 40 years. The Budd Group is very responsive to our requests and needs, and we truly believe in their loyalty and commitment to our success.

Billy D. Smith, Kershaw County School District

I personally have had the best experience and relationship with The Budd Group. From their owner all the way to their day porters, they take great pride in representing the company name, and doing the best job they can. During these unprecedented pandemic times The Budd Group has been flexible and responsive to the changing needs our district has had in every way. With every firm that we have used there have been issues, but no firm has ever been as responsive, and as quick to fix whatever the issue may be as The Budd Group!

Nick Mincey, Orange County Schools

The Budd Group has gone above and beyond in providing custodial services to our district. Following a lengthy RFP process, we as a committee selected them to help our district achieve a new and rejuvenating approach to campus cleaning and facility care. We asked them to take on a difficult task of staffing, and preparing schools for the start of our school year with only 6 weeks of transition time. We all knew it would be difficult at best. However, with the help of their Human Resources department and successful hiring strategies, we were up and running by the time our Staff members began to enter the campuses for the school year.

Blaise Winch, Capsugel

The Budd Group has been providing services to Capsugel for over 6 years. The service provided has been excellent and professional. They perform duties in multiple locations including a manufacturing plant, distribution center, office area, machine shop and fitness center. They clean all of the following types of areas at those various locations: office, bathroom, cafeteria, fitness center, locker room, shipping/receiving and CGMP production areas. As it relates to CGMP experience, they also created a sanitation program for the cGMP areas, maintain and created their own operating instructions, maintain document control and follow all cGMP guidelines for hygiene and documentation.

Susan A. Maddux, Presbyterian College

The Budd Group has become a true partner with Presbyterian College. They have taken the time to fully understand our mission and become a true part of the Blue Hose family. The housekeeping staff often pull off miracles when given very little time to clean a space on campus between events. They work long hours and respond 24/7 to emergencies on campus. The landscaping team has transformed the grounds of the campus such that the college regularly gets positive feedback from those who visit the campus. Before outsourcing to The Budd Group, the college performed these services in house. We have seen significant improvement in both housekeeping and grounds since The Budd Group took over.
