    Garden Clearance Near Me

    Garden clearances are a time consuming and often dirty job, many people do not like the idea of filling the family car up with wet and smelly garden waste to make several trips to the local recycling centre! Luckily you can now hire a garden clearance contractor to tidy up your garden and dispose of the waste for you, leaving you to relax and enjoy your garden again. Local garden clearance firms offer a flexible and efficient service, clearing all your unwanted items, from garden furniture to hedge trimmings and rotten sheds.

    Professional garden clearance companies will also use sheeting and shoe protection if they have to go through your house to clear waste from the garden, leaving your home and garden clean and tidy. Most garden clearance services will include removing all waste, all loading and a sweep up, but generally will not include garden maintenance such as pruning and mowing, though some will offer a complete range of gardening services.

    If you are planning on doing garden clearance yourself, remember to separate green waste materials, reduce the bulkiness of your garden waste as much as possible so you can do fewer trips or order the largest skip you can and get rid of everything without using the family car. Remember that you can often get waste timber collected for free from those using solid fuel fires and don't forget to compost organic waste.

    How Much Does Garden Clearance Cost?

    The average price per hour charged by gardeners and garden maintenance companies is about £12 and upwards, but some will offer a discount if there are multiple hours of work involved. Some garden maintenance companies may charge a fixed price for the entire job, but this is less common. If you are physically fit and capable of doing the job yourself, you should weigh up the costs involved using a professional garden clearance company against the costs of hiring a skip and clearing the garden yourself.

    But be warned, this is backbreaking work! If hiring someone to do the job for you, use the free quote service on this site to quickly gather quotes from 3 recommended tradesman near you, it only takes a few minutes and is much easier than looking up companies in the yellow pages and phoning around!

    Garden Clearance Tips

    When calling a local skip or rubbish clearance company, be sure to specify what type of waste you have, as many will offer you a reduced fee for green waste which is recyclable. Most waste removal companies charge on the basis of volume, so try to reduce the bulkiness of your garden waste as much as possible by cutting up bulky items like branches and bagging leaves and grass cuttings where possible, this helps reduce volume and makes loading easier and quicker, further reducing costs. If the clearance company charges an hourly rate you can also reduce costs by placing your garden waste as close as possible to where they will park their van.

    If you are doing everything yourself and using a skip, order the largest skip you can, larger skips costs less per cubic metre or cubic yard of waste than smaller ones. Many people still have wood burning fires or stoves, so if you have had a tree cropped or cut down, chop it into logs and sell them, rather than paying for someone to remove the wood! Don't forget to compost, creating your own compost heap is definitely the most cost effective and environmentally friendly way of disposing of garden waste.

    Price It Right Tree and Garden Service reply: I do not know what to say about this this I agreed yes then I got 4 types of different flagstones this lady could just not agree with what she wanted she asked me to send money and post it through her door so I did so now she is saying she hasn't received it so again I do not know what to say about this matter but I posted the £225 through a letterbox in an envelope now she's saying she did not receive it. And to be fair it wasn't down to me to give her anything back because I already done all the work she asked me to the only thing I didn't do was Lady flags because she did not know what flags to put down. So basically I think that she has ripped me off not the other way around I don't all the work till 3 loads of rubbish away cut trees down .diged out borders. And also cleared all the waste away in your honest opinion who do you think was the one who got ripped off.
