    "It really depends on the following number of things

    1/ What is aproximate size of your garden in feet or meters

    Most gardeners will want to see the garden before giving a price, here is what determines the price i give a customer
    1 size, 2 how over grown is the garden and the amount of waste it will generate as it has a cost implication to me,
    3/ Are there any trees or shrubs to be removed , meaning extra equipment may be needed and extra waste generated
    4/ are there beds and shrubs there as you then cant just cut eberything down with a petrol hedge trimmer care will need to be taken and that involves extra time and to you extra cost
    5 do you want us to do anything with the garden when we have cleared it
    6 i will send a written quote do you confirm by email you accept the quotation ive given you"

    "The cost of just cutting back and clearing sections of a garden that size would be around £500-£700, if you’re looking to remove trees completely and bushes then you would be looking at £1000 +"

    "It would depend on where you are, how big the trees are that need to come out and the amount of waste to come out.
    If you add a clear photo I could give you a rough price guide.
    Thanks Mike."

    If you are in our local area of Hastings / Bexhill.
    We would charge by the hour of £20 for one operative but this doesn't include taking any of the waste away.

    If you wanted a fix price then it would be best for us to attend to give you a price."
