During the winter months, gardens can get a little neglected. With the weather often awful, people spend hardly any time in their gardens and it means they aren’t taken care of as well as they are in the summer. Garden maintenance is essential to ensure your garden always looks great, no matter what time of year.
As we lead into the summer months, garden maintenance becomes even more important. The summer means plenty of time spent in the garden whether that is because the children are out playing sports and games or whether people are entertaining their friends with a barbecue and a few drinks.
Getting your garden ready for summer can sometimes be a stressful experience though. Some people don’t have the time to get into their garden and make it look better – their working hours mean that they are leaving really early in the morning and aren’t getting home until it is getting dark. This leaves little to no time for anything, let alone making the garden look presentable.
This is where the services of a gardener may be worth looking into. There are many professional gardeners out there who can get messy and neglected gardens looking like new again with a little bit of elbow grease. If a garden is especially messy with other items as well as overgrown grass and weeds, garden clearance might also be an option.
What is garden clearance? It is basically the event of completely clearing out the garden. Not only will the clearance involve getting rid of weeds, loose branches, leaves and other garden items but it also includes getting rid of any furniture or appliances you’ve put in the garden, any general waste, wood or builder’s waste too. Pretty much anything that has been left in the garden will be cleared away. However there are certain items that may not be able to be removed as the person removing may need a special license to remove that type of waste – this is why it is important to do your research if you are looking to hire someone.
Garden clearance costs can depend on a variety of different factors. The location of the property and the garden, the amount of rubbish to be cleared – this includes size and weight, the time it will take to complete the job and what actual rubbish needs to be removed as certain waste needs to be discarded in a certain way.
Getting your garden ready for summer needn’t be difficult – mowing the grass and removing the weeds and rubbish should be easy enough for anyone to do. However, if time is one of your many constraints, a gardener or a company who do garden clearances are a very reasonable option too. In just a few hours, your garden will be looking spick and span again and perfect for entertaining guests or for the kids to play out in.
