We provide a garden clearance service in East London and Essex.


Removing all kinds of waste from your garden

Do you need to clear your garden ready for landscaping or other construction? Or does it feel neglected or overgrown? We break up and remove patios, dismantle sheds and take apart concrete paths. We also clear weeds, shrubs, trees and other plants, old turf, trunks and roots.


Clearing your garden without making a mess

This kind of work is quicker if we have direct side or rear access to the garden. But don’t worry if that’s not possible. We cover floors and protect walls and furniture and carefully carry waste through. Before the job is finished, we always make sure we leave the area clean and keep any disruption to a minimum. 

Disposing of waste properly
We can either bag up garden clearance waste and leave it for council collection. Or we can take it straight to a local licensed waste and recycling centre for an additional charge. For waste disposal information please see our price list.


If you have a large amount of waste, we may need to hire a skip or lorry. We can take care of this, including obtaining suitable permits.


Contact us for a quote

For smaller garden clearance projects, we can discuss and quote on the phone. But if you have a job that takes longer than one or two days, we’ll come and visit you at your home or other site.

Quotations are free of charge. We email you the quote, broken down into labour and waste removal charges.
