In recent years, making the most of our outside space has become increasingly attractive.
However, this may simply getting rid of any unwanted garden furniture or other items you’ve been clinging onto, or allowing it to grow a little faster than you’d want.
A garden clearance can be a large effort depending on the size of the space you have, but with enough preparation and thinking, you can easily transform your outside space into a wonderful place to sit and relax.
Here are our top tips for planning your garden clearance
Make sure you put some time aside
It will take some time to sort through your garden furniture, deciding what you want to keep, what you want to get rid of, and what you’ll do with the items you’ll get rid of.
You won’t be able to accomplish it correctly by spending a few minutes after work each night.
Even for a little garden, you’ll probably need at least a few days.
Schedule your garden clearance over the weekend or take a few days off work so you can fully commit to the effort.
What do you plan to keep or remove?
Make a strategy before you start, whether you’re just freshening up your yard or planning a total clear out of old furniture and vegetation.
That way you’ll be able to work quicker and stay organized
It can also assist you in determining whether you require a skip (and what size skip you require) or a man and van service to remove your yard waste.
What will you do with your unwanted garden waste?
Many types of green yard trash, such as grass cuttings, can be placed in your municipal recycling container.
As a result, they’re simple to deal with.
However, ‘brown’ garden garbage, as well as any old garden furniture, cannot be placed in this container, so you’ll need to come up with another solution.
You may need to hire a skip if you have a lot of bulky garden debris.
A garden removal service may be a preferable option if there are a few big things.
But keep in mind that just because you’ve opted to clean up your garden doesn’t mean you have to get rid of everything.
Some goods may be restored or reused. Others could be donated or given away.
You might even be able to make a profit by selling a few goods on the internet.
Organize your clear out
If you’re not simply throwing your garden waste away, you’ll need to get organized to ensure that you only remove the stuff you want to save, or you’ll end up losing items you want to keep.
So think about what you’ll want to keep, sell, or donate and sort everything out – simply choose a part of the garden you’ve already sorted and store these goods there to keep them out of the way.
Instead of trying to arrange your goods as you go, being organized ahead of time will make your garden clean-up much easier and faster.
Arrange your recycling collection or skip
Depending on how much yard garbage you have, a skip may be required instead of a van pickup.
You may not be able to put all of your green garden trash in your council container, so keep that in mind when planning your collection.
If you don’t have a lot of yard waste, you might be able to get by with only using your council recycling bin and a trip to the local dump.
A lawn clearance service may be the ideal alternative if you only have a few bags of trash or a handful of large things like garden furniture.
A skip will be the ideal solution if you’re performing a comprehensive cleanout and have a combination of garden garbage and large goods.
When hiring a skip, you’ll need to figure out the optimum size for your needs (we usually recommend ordering a skip larger than you think you’ll need because it’s more cost effective) and make sure you have a permit in place if you’ll be placing the skip on a public road.
