Hi All,

I recently moved to a house in Luton and garden is a big mess. Overgrown plants and rubble from last building extension all spread in the garden.

Any suggestions where to start? Hire someone to do the job or do it yourself? Any recommendations from some personal experience about some landscaper/gardener?

Thanks

I would start by getting some rubble bags and take some stuff to the dump that will save you a lot of money . Once you have a clear area then you can decide what you want from your garden

Mini digger and a couple of skips, then order some decent top soil. No point in messing around.

Totally agree. Did this a couple of years ago and it was well worth it. Once cleared, a local guy dug it over and it's been great for planting/trench laying for utilities/slabbing/shed building etc.It made life so much easier.

Personally I'd clear the rubble then strimmer or mow what's left.
Clear any weeds that are left or come back then go from there.

Probably the most effort but cheapest and most rewarding.

Remove the rubble yourself as that is easy. Over grown plants best pay for a gardener. Look around for local gardeners to get quotes for the clearance.

Totally depending on scale, for my garden, when I moved in, I would say the opposite.

Your YouTube name is 'computer guru', but you filmed a YouTube video in portrait? I'm just winding you up.
You just need to get that to a point where it's a blank slate. Clear the weeds by hand (I don't think a strimmer will help you much there) then the rubble might not seem so daunting. If it is bad, like said above, get a mini digger in.

Depends how tight you are. You could do it yourself but I'm sure you could get a gang of foreigners to clear it for a couple of hundred quid whilst you enjoy a cold one on the sofa.

It's hard to tell with the quality of that footage but it seems fairly tame. More neglected for a few months than nasty.

If you fancy the job I would definitely do it yourself. There doesn't look to be anything that'd require specialist disposal or heavy machinery and you'll get more of a sense of it being your garden at the end of it.

As Joedastudd says, pick up the covering rubble then strim down the ground covering. Once the ground cover is reduced to lawn height you'll have a better idea of what's in your garden.
