It can be hard to know where to start when you’re looking at an overgrown garden. Perhaps you’re a landlord whose tenants haven’t looked after the property, or maybe you’ve moved into a run-down house that you’re looking forward to renovating.

Hiring a local garden clearance specialist can save you weeks of time and often works out more cost-effective than purchasing the specialist tools required to clear your garden yourself.

But what should you look for when you come to hire a garden clearance specialist?

What questions should you ask a Garden Clearance Specialist?

What's your area of expertise?

Different garden clearance companies will have different areas of expertise so it’s important to ask the right questions. Some will go as far as clearing the garden of weeds and trimming trees and hedges. Others may have more broad specialisms which means they’ll be able to lay new turf, plant shrubs and hedges, and even do basic landscaping.

What experience and qualifications do you have?

Be sure to ask your garden clearance specialist about their experience and qualifications to find out what they enjoy and where their expertise lies.

What's your availability?

You’ll also need to ask your garden clearance specialist about their availability. Are they available immediately or do they have a waiting list of projects that you’ll need to join?

Do you provide the tools?

It’s also important to ensure that your garden clearance specialist will be bringing their own tools. You’re probably looking to hire a garden clearance specialist because you don’t have the time, skills or equipment to do the task yourself, so you don’t want to have to buy tools on top of hiring the specialist.

What qualifications should a Garden Clearance Specialist have?

There are many different routes into becoming a garden clearance specialist, but you’ll find that experience is the most important pre-requisite. 

No piece of paper can ever beat the skills and expertise that is gained from clearing hundreds of different gardens and working with many clients.

Look for a garden clearance specialist who has completed other projects similar to yours. Any professional garden clearance specialist will be happy to provide you with written testimonials from previous clients or contact details for you to obtain references.

It's also super easy to read professional's reviews on their Bark profile too!

What insurance should a Garden Clearance Specialist have?

Your garden clearance specialist should be adequately insured to cover any damage or injuries that occur whilst they’re working on your property.

To sum up

It’s a good idea to hire a local garden clearance specialist to save you time and manual effort. However, it’s always best to ensure you ask the right questions and perform the right checks to make sure you’re choosing the right professional for your garden clearance project.
