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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’ve had a good clearout this Autumn in preparation for Winter, our garden clearance services in Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley may be just what you need. We can remove everything from clippings, hedge trimmings and dead plants, to felled trees and unwanted top soil.

It’s a well known fact that keeping a garden well kept and tidy requires a lot of work. There are hedges to prune, lawns to keep short and healthy, and flower beds to tend. Keeping on top of all these tasks can seem daunting, especially when everything grows so quickly during the summer months.
But if you want to get your garden looking neat and tidy in a jiffy, here are 3 simple tips from Clearance and Clean Up rubbish removal Sheffield that will transform your garden for a fast make over.
When you look out over your garden, it’s likely that you’ll notice the overall effect rather than all the little details. Improving the overall effect by tidying up your flower beds and borders, running the lawnmower over the lawn and trimming the hedge can have a dramatic effect. These are all easy actions that can make messy areas look tidy and well-cared for with minimum effort.
This is a great tip for adding colour and interest to your garden, and it’s really simple and easy to do. Choose a tall plant as the centrepiece for the pot, and surround with trailing plants and colourful annuals. Or, you could select one large, bold plant per pot for an eye-catching statement.
Trellises are a great way of adding a little architecture to your garden, adding a focal point or marking an entrance. They look really lovely when covered with flowering vine plants. Take a trip down to your local garden centre and you should be able to pick one up for a reasonable price.
As you can see, there are plenty of simple things that you can do to tidy up your garden quickly, create a lasting impression on your guests, and allow you to enjoy your garden over the summer.

The clocks have gone forward and British summer time is finally here! The weather might not be brilliant yet, but hopefully it won’t be long before you can enjoy the sunshine in your garden. Whether you’re looking forward to having a BBQ or relaxing in a deckchair, the chances are you’re eager to get your garden looking great for the warmer months ahead.
Lots of people really enjoy gardening and it’s lovely to be able to get out in your garden and tend to your shrubs, bushes and flowers. There’s nothing like having a flourishing garden full of bright coloured flora and different shades of green! But sometimes unwanted waste can collect in your garden, which makes getting it looking neat and tidy for summer that much harder.
Before you can really enjoy your garden this summer, there may be some bits and pieces that you are keen to get rid of. Perhaps you’ve finally got around to pruning that bush that’s been overgrowing for years and have lots of garden waste to dispose of? Or are you thinking of replacing your garden furniture and want to get rid of your old set? You may have clippings, hedge trimmings and even felled trees to get rid of. Or possibly an old children’s play house or dismantled shed. Either way, hiring a rubbish removal company in Sheffield is an easy way of getting rid of your unwanted garden waste without the hassle!
Sometimes, people end up using their garden as a bit of a dumping ground for unwanted household items too. For example, when you get a new fridge, freezer or washing machine, you may move the old one out into the garden until you have the time to take it to the skip. But if you hire a Sheffield rubbish removal company, they can take that away for you too.
