I'm hoping that someone can give me an idea of whether £3600 is a good price for having a garden cleared (old compost heap, soil heap etc) and returfed. It's about 25 metres by 5 metres. The price includes pruning all the existing trees and getting rid of some stumps.
Any advice greatly appreciated, I am garden "virgin".
That seems incredibly expensive. How long did they say the job will take and how many men. How tall are the trees and how many ?
Apart from the tree pruning this isn't a skilled job.. Are they taking the rubbish away? I've just had a plum tree and 2 evergreens pruned for £120 and I live in London where things are considered to be very expensive. It took 2 men less than an hour.
I am in London too. It is a team of 4. When I say re-turf, they will be rotovating, mulching and then laying turf, and also laying an area of bark chips to the rear. They will be removing all the rubbish. I was thinking it would cost around £2000 + vat.
Not sure about the turf, but I've paid £180 to have 60 foot hedge cut right back and 120 foot garden cleared, 2 days work for 1 guy. Why not price up the turf and then see if it seems reasonable for the labour on top?
We are in East London. Last year we paid c£2k for partial clearing of our garden (top third of our garden was a mess), laying turf on 2/3 of it and pruning the plants/bushes in the borders. Garden c150ft.
Your quote does sound pricey. I'd get another quote to compare.
