One of the nightmares of doing any demolition on a construction project is that you demo something you most certainly did not want to demo.

Whether it’s a kitchen, bathroom or a full blown home renovation, your going to be knocking down, ripping out or reducing to rubble something on the project. Got to get rid of the old before you can start building the new, that’s just the way it is.

Here’s the rub though, in the course of getting rid of all the old, there are some old things you do not want to touch. Take this home renovation we’re doing in Malibu, to get ready to start building the new yard design we first needed to demo the old front yard. This meant getting out all the old dying trees and existing landscaping. But the danger here when removing large trees is that if you aren’t careful and dig too deep, you can hit underground pipes, which can be expensive to replace not to mention bring the whole project to a grinding halt.

This way we get rid of the trees we don’t want without taking any chances of destroying underground pipes. This takes a little bit more time to do, but in the long run, the peace of mind knowing we won’t be having to dig up the whole front yard repairing under ground pipes is worth the extra effort.

About Eric Anderson LA

Hello, I'm Eric Anderson, digital brand guru and dog fanatic. I'm always interested in new internet projects and when I met this guy who made orthopedic dog beds and wanted a website, well being the dog enthusiasts that I am, I buried myself in the project. To make a long story short, I'm now a partner in the project (love it) and our site is live. Just google orthopawdic and you'll find us. We're a new dog bed company so if you can take a look at the site, our dog bed product and let us know what you think. We need feedback to keep improving our service and product. If you're an animal person, I think you'll like what we're doing. Eric Anderson
