The Time Of Year For Garden Clearances

A garden can be an absolute wonder and joy. It's lovely to admire your garden from your windows or patio, stroll through it, and enjoy a cuppa if you've set up a little table or even some lovely holiday brunches or barbeques. Lots of people love to populate their garden with brightly coloured beautiful flowers, some with fragrant herbs, and some with useful and seasonal veggies.

Maintaining this joy and pride can be a lot of hard work, but so satisfying if done regularly and systematically. In fact, a lot of people find tending to their garden very therapeutic and satisfying. If you have a family, getting the older folks as well as the young ones involved can be a great bonding exercise as well as a way to keep them interested in a hobby. If however, you are planning on looking after your garden, do it the right way. The following are some important steps and stages in garden clearance and maintenance.

Separate the greens from the waste materials:
When you gather your garden waste, you're going to be looking at mounds of furniture, plastic bags, bricks, soil, pots etc. but there's a lot of waste in the garden that can actually be put to good use. This recyclable stuff consists of grass, leaves, smallish twigs and weeds. It's also much cheaper to dispose off, at least by half. When calling the company to collect this waste, it makes sense to let them know you've segregated it, and you end up getting a much better rate. It's also your own nod to the environment, which feels great at the end of the day.

Lose the bulk:
Garden clearance companies also cost basis volume. So you don't want your waste to end up looking like the Louvre. It's going to look like a big job for them, when most times it isn't. Cut up the branches, push them together, bag up the cuttings from leaves and grass. Do whatever you can to make it all take up less space. And bagging also makes the loading and taking away easier for them, they're sure to appreciate it in some way.

Reduce the manual labour:
Another way to cut down on costs, time and disgruntled men, is to keep your waste as close to the curb as possible. Whether you do this in reusable bags or bins, it's much easier for the men to clear it away, dump it in their truck and return your containers. It just cuts down the time the job will take, and make the entire process a whole lot efficient.

Try and get economies of scale by ordering as large a skip as your area allows, figure out a way to sell off your perfectly good logs instead of throwing them away, and set up a little compost to get rid of your waste responsibly while helping it go back into growing you a better, healthier garden.

Whether it's tiny jobs or a large flattening job that may involve masonry, ask around for quotes and testimonials about different garden clearance companies, before you select the one you think you'll be satisfied with.
