We really really need someone to come and clear the back of our garden - there is a bit of rubble and the area is quite overgrown with weeds. The area is about 3mx3m. The quotes from gardening companies we've had are just extortinate! We just need someone with a small business (and van!) who wants to make a bit of money!

Can anyone help?!

Thanks!!

One was over 400!!!!
The cheapest was 200 - in my opinion the area is not that big to warrant paying that amount of money! Just taken some pictures - husband just uploading them now!

We want the area clearing because we'd like to level the area to make room for a new shed

Thanks!

When you say clear do you mean to just take away and chop down those big bushes and thats it?

Well yes that's part of it but under those 'big bushes' (weeds) is a quite a lot of rubble. Would it be better for you to come and see it?

Exactly! Shocking isn't it?! I'm thinking that these garden clearance companies just don't think it's worth their time so they charge more????
