5 Tips for Preparing Your Garden for Winter from Clearance and Clean Up, Specialist Rubbish Removal in Sheffield

Now that the clocks have gone back, the evenings are dark, and the unmistakable whispers of Christmas can be heard, it’s time to get your garden ready for the winter ahead. As experts in waste removal and garden clearance in Sheffield, we’ve put together our top 5 tips for preparing your garden for the winter.

Remove and Plant Tender Species

Tender species such as Dahlias, Begonias and even some woody shrubs can be lifted, potted up and brought indoors for the winter to avoid the first frost. Simply cut back the stems, gently lift the tubers from the ground, and give them a clean. They can then be stored somewhere cool but frost free, in trays of dry compost or sand over the winter until the spring comes.

Now is the time to remove annual plants and either add them to the compost heap or dispose of them. If you have any plants that need to be moved, or perennials that could do with being separated, Autumn is the perfect time to do this.  Ideally, you cut your perennials back to approximately 5cm above ground. Then, cover borders with a good layer of compost, manure or bark chips.

Give the Wildlife a Helping Hand

Winter can be a tough time of year for wildlife visiting your garden, so do your best to look after them. Put up a couple of bird feeders and provide some water. Try fat balls, nuts and over ripe raisins or apples.

Repair Fences and Woodwork

With your herbaceous borders empty, you’ll have plenty of room to survey and improve the structural aspect of your garden. If your fence is in need of repair, a good paint, or needs to be removed and replaced, Autumn is the perfect time to do it. Walls, plastering, and other woodwork such as decking, sheds or summer houses can be addressed at this time too.

Add Some Colour with Winter Plants

Autumn and Winter in your garden need not be colourless and bleak if you know what plants to choose. For example, cyclamens, pansies, violas and winter jasmine are all hardy enough to survive the winter, and bring some colour and variety to your garden over the colder months.

I needed my garage cleaning and found these guys on the internet. It was a great service from beginning to end. Tom who answered the phone was very polite and accommodating to my needs. I work shifts so I explained to Tom that it needed the rubbish collecting after 11 and before 1 due to my shift and sleep patterns! We arranged a time off 11.30, the lads who did the job turned up on time as agreed and were polite. They were real hard workers and cleared the garage in no time at all. All in it was a really professional and efficient service. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.

Highly recommended. Having been let down by Veolia, who wouldn’t pick up the rubbish, supposedly because of access to my property, I was delighted that it was no problem for this company. Tom very trustworthy and straightforward on the phone. They did exactly what they said they would do and for a very fair price too.

These guys were brilliant. They were very fast and efficient at replying to my initial query, quoting and carrying out the job (garage clear out ready for house move). I can’t really say if their prices are comparable to others as I’ve not used a company for this before but I thought they were reasonable.

Had these guys clear an outbuilding and despite them charging per hour, they were like machines and got the job done in no time! Cheaper than we have had previously - by a marginal amount granted, but their service was far superior, so all in all very competitive! Turned up exactly when arranged, extremely pleased with them and would DEFINITELY use again!!

Excellent service, quick and efficient nothing was too much trouble. Arrived on time professional and courteous. This was a house clearance after our tenant left the property in a disgusting state, the guys cleared everything saved us time in getting the property back on the market and money and effort in having a skip. Great job highly recommend.

I had no trouble booking a slot when I needed and the guys turned up exactly on time. They were cheerful, friendly, speedy and belpful. So much better than hiring a skip. Everything was gone within fifteen minutes. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend.

Great experience with these guys. They came and cleared a load of rubble from my garden. The two lads who came were very polite and friendly, they cleared the rubble in very little time and I am very impressed with the job they've done.It was slightly more expensive than hiring a skip, but so much less hassle! Plus if I'd hired a skip I'd have had to do all the lifting and moving myself! Definitely worth the money, I will definitely use again and I would recommend to anybody.

Really impressed with the service I received today. The guys were polite, friendly and efficient and cleared everything really quickly, despite the heat. I now have a garden I can enjoy for the rest of the summer. I would highly recommend this company - far less trouble than hiring a skip and very good value for money.

Brilliant guys who came to clear up the bungalow of an elderly relative with dementia who had been a hoarder all her life. They worked quickly and were very polite. We used them 2 weeks running because of the amount of rubbish. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and would use again in the future.

Great company, great experience from start to finish Helen taking the call for me and having to change the date at last minute, they did not mind. Lads on time Rob and Trev did a brilliant job they deserve a bonus for all their hard work. Definitely, use this company if you need their services.

This is the second time I have used them. Arrived promptly and they cleared my garage in about 10 minutes. Both guys were very friendly and did all the work. Much easier than trying to deal with a skip. Will certainly use them again when I fill the garage up with more junk.
