Seasonal garden clearance

When the seasons change, so does your garden – there are plenty of points during the year that your garden might need a good clear-out, whether that’s cutting back hedges and shrubs, clearing out weeds and vines, or digging up turf to make way for new flower beds or vegetable patches.

Our small skips are ideal for this kind of garden clearance work – depending on the size of your garden and the extent of the work being carried out, we’d usually recommend:

4-yard skip hire: our smallest skip is ideal for most light garden clearance work – prices start at just £70 for two weeks.

6-yard skip hire: a little more roomy, our 6-yard skip starts at just £90 and is ideal for garden and green waste, and stones or rubble.

8-yard skip hire: this maxi skip is perfect for more extensive garden clearances, and is a popular skip hire choice for customers looking to clear green waste, soil, and stones. Prices from £120.

6-yard skip hire: able to hold up to four tonnes of soil and stone, our 6-yard skip costs from just £90 and is ideal for domestic landscaping work.
