When we think of renovating our home, it’s often only the indoors we consider however, it’s possible to do a garden renovation too. Removing your existing garden and clearing the space creates a new area that can be used for multiple purposes.
Before your new garden can take begin to take shape, there is plenty of groundwork to be done. Read on to learn more about what a complete garden renovation involves including:
When it comes to undertaking renovations in your garden, it is important to ensure it is done safely. While you may think it is a task you can tackle yourself, there may be work involved at heights plus the use of specialised equipment. Most equipment should only be operated by those who are trained and qualified to do so. Working together closely with nearby neighbours or officials for gas lines, water or electricity will give you peace of mind that certain structures are not damaged through the works process too.
Depending on what renovations are taking place, trees and stumps in your garden may need removing. The removing or pruning of trees can be dangerous work and should only be undertaken by those trained and equipped to do so. Once a tree is removed, it’s important to ensure the stump is ground correctly to ensure the trees root system doesn’t begin to grow again.
Garden beds removal involves ensuring all plants and soil is removed and discarded appropriately. Garden bed removal may also involve removing bricks or borders surrounding garden beds.
When the unwanted trees, stumps and garden removal has taken place, the process to clear away all debris and level off the surface takes place. It is important to also ensure all rubbish is disposed of correctly too.
Once this important groundwork has been done and you have a cleared space, your new garden can begin to come to life. Your new space can be used for may purposes including planting new lawn and vegetation or installing a new permanent fixture such as a garage or patio.

With winter approaching it’s a good time to check the health of the trees on your property. With winter comes strong and gale force winds and lightning storms, checking trees on your property now enables you to have trees that are unsafe or could cause damage to your property, trimmed or removed before winter arrives.
What are the signs a tree on your property needs to be trimmed or removed? Read on to learn a few signs to look out for including:
Tall and lush trees provide a great view and plenty of shade during summer. However, a tree that has grown very tall and now has overhanging branches can be a risk in winter. If branches are overhanging onto a home, an outdoor space such as a patio or shed, near windows, vehicles or even where people walk or stand then it is a good idea to have them trimmed. In some cases, strong and gale force winds can cause entire trees to be uprooted causing extensive structural damage to your home. The removing or pruning of trees and overhanging branches is a job best left to a professional who has the expertise and equipment to ensure trees are trimmed or removed safely.
If a tree on your property has a slight lean to one side, this can be normal. After all, trees often don’t grow straight up and down. However, if you notice a tree is now leaning more than normal, it’s time to call in a professional to work out why. If you can see a leaning tree’s roots around the base or a leaning tree has soil accumulating on the side opposite the lean, it is likely the tree is unstable. A leaning tree should be inspected by a professional. It may not have to be removed, rather pruned and re-stabilised to help redistribute the trees weight evenly again.
When checking trees on a property it is important to check the trunk and base of a tree too. Visible cracks and splits in a tree’s trunk, fungus around the stump or splitting or peeling of branches are all signs a tree can be damaged. While as a homeowner you may identify these warning signs, a professional has the knowledge to identify the cause of the damage and if the tree needs to be trimmed or removed or can be bought back to good health.

While most trees can live a long time, there are many factors that affect a tree. For this reason, trees on your property should be inspected regularly to ensure their good health. Despite regular checks, some trees still sadly die. When this occurs, it’s important to ensure removing them is a priority. A dead tree is unpredictable and if not removed, can be the cause of damage to home, property, vegetation or worse still, people.
Read on to learn 5 important reasons to make removing dead trees a priority including:
If a dead tree on your property is in an area that people access, removing it is essential. Once it has died, a trees branches are prone to breaking and falling without warning. Worse still, the whole tree may come down. Don’t put the well-being and safety of you and others at risk of being struck by falling branches.
A fallen branch from a dead tree can cause serious damage to home structures. A damaged roof, broken window or damaged vehicle can be the result of a fallen branch. A fallen dead tree could also block access to your home causing a huge inconvenience to you and your family.
A dead tree can be the culprit of damage to not only your home, but your neighbours too. Fallen branches or whole trees can cause significant damage to neighbouring fences plus neighbour’s outdoor areas including sheds, patios and garages. Eliminate the risk of a dead tree causing damage by having it removed.
There are several factors that can cause tree diseases including location, soil quality and weather conditions. Many tree diseases are contagious and easily spread to nearby trees and plants. Minimise this risk and protect the rest of your garden by having dead trees removed straight away.
The longer a dead tree remains standing, the more brittle it becomes. The more brittle a dead tree is, the riskier the job of removing it can become. This can lead to more time needed which can lead to more costs involved.

Having the correct equipment is essential when performing earthworks. Adding a new path, driveway, firebreak or landscape design to your home or property are all common reasons to have earthworks done. Old turf or lawn that has died and needs to be dug out is another common reason for earthworks. Earthworks can improve drainage if you have water pooling in outside areas such as driveways or around drains. Many homes have unwanted wooden or concrete structures, both can be moved with the correct earthworks to ensure no damage is down to irrigation or below ground pipes.
With winter comes strong winds causing branches and leaves to fall from trees. Fallen leaves can block drains and gutters causing further maintenance issues for homeowners. Overgrown trees can be an issue in not only your yard but neighbours too. Fallen branches can become trip hazards for you and your family when outdoors. Regular trimming of overgrown and overhanging tree branches will minimise the risk of damage. Lawn that is overgrown often requires not only mowing, but edges to be redone too. Debris accumulates quickly so a yard clean up will remove all debris and have your yard looking neat and tidy again.
Trees can require removal for various reasons. Removing trees can be dangerous work so it’s a job best left to professionals who are fully trained and have the correct equipment on hand to ensure safety.

The winter season is upon us as low temperatures, rain and strong winds settle in around the South West. If you haven’t already, it is certainly time to check the exterior of your home or property to make sure it is safe. This will not only minimise the risk of potential damage, but help prevent any nasty surprises when venturing outdoors after fierce winter storms or winds.
Trees on your property should be at the top of your list to be inspected. Here are just a few things to look out for when inspecting trees on your property this winter:
Trees often don’t grow straight up and down, a little lean can be normal. However, if your tree is leaning more than usual, has a build up of soil on the side opposite the lean or has visible roots around the base of the tree, it is a sure sign the tree may be unstable. An experienced professional will have the expertise to know how to re-stabilise the tree to help redistribute the trees weight evenly again.
Having beautiful large trees is aesthetically pleasing and provides beautiful shade during the summer months. Fast forward a few months to winter and the higher the tree, the bigger the risk of potential damage. The cause of this damage is often lightning and strong winds. If lightning strikes one side of a tree, it may live to see another day, but if a bolt travels through the trunk, damaging wood, bark and roots, it could mean the life of the tree is over.
Strong and gale force winds can cause entire trees to be uprooted or considerable structural damage to occur. Large branches can fall onto roofs, fencing, gutters, sheds, patios or even through windows. Cutting or pruning trees before winter is a job best left to a professional, they have the experience and expertise not to mention the correct equipment to ensure safety too.
While most trees have a long life span, there are many environmental factors that can effect a tree’s health. These can include not only the rain, wind and storms that winter brings, but also cold weather too. A few signs your tree may be unhealthy include cracks and splits in a trees trunk, fungus around the stump of the tree, splitting or peeling of branches and an uneven growth pattern. A professional has the expertise to identify these warning signs and know when a tree needs attention. Having your trees inspected regularly is the best way to ensure their good health.

When there are large trees around housing, fences or cars it is a good idea to keep them maintained by a professional who is better equipped to handle the trees and who has the knowledge with different signs a tree might show to indicate that the tree isn’t in its healthiest state.
Trees can cause thousands of dollars in damages when they come down on roofs, cars or neighbouring properties and if you are not covered by a reputable insurance company. You will also be thanking your lucky stars that no one was in its path when it comes to crashing to a halt.
Deep cracks or missing bark may be caused by a disease known as canker, this can cause a tree to break in that spot. If your tree looks healthy but is developing deep cracks this should not be ignored as with any deep cracks are not the sign of a healthy tree.
If you notice a tree leaning more than 15 degrees from strong winds or root damage the whole tree needs to be removed for safety.
When branches are growing tightly together this is a bad sign. Elm, Maple, Yellow Poplar and Willow trees will break at the forks of stems where weak formations are. Noticing a “V” shaped structure is not healthy and should be more like a “U” for a strong union.
This can be a sign that there are root system problems. As the roots are where the tree gets its nutrients and water from.
As the tree is trying to make itself smaller so that has less to feed, big branches could be noticed falling from the tree, more than usual. Any dead branches should be removed as soon as possible to ensure safety.
