Clearing the garden: rest in your own garden

A garden can be a beautiful place to relax, enjoy nature and have quality time with friends and family. But there may be times when you want to clear your garden for various reasons. Maybe you are planning to create a new garden, you want to redesign your garden, or you simply need an empty garden without excess plants and structures. Whatever the reason, clearing a garden can be a challenging task, but with the right steps and professionals like ZSM House Clearance you can make this process go smoothly.

Why empty a garden?

There may be several reasons why you choose to clear your garden. Maybe you want to create a new garden with a fresh and modern look, or you simply want to tidy up the current garden and make a fresh start. Clearing a garden also offers benefits such as creating more space, removing unwanted plants and clearing out cluttered or damaged structures. Removing unwanted plants in an old garden is a common task. This is due to the fact that removing unwanted plants is difficult and having them removed from the garden is of course a lot easier. This way you don't have to do anything yourself and it's all done before you even know it.

Steps for clearing a garden

Having your garden cleared out is of course easier, because if you want to do this yourself, this can be a process that involves several steps. Would you like to try clearing the garden yourself? Here are some important steps you can follow:


Before you start clearing your garden, it's important to make a plan and gather the necessary tools and materials. This includes gloves, pruning shears, a rake, a shovel and possibly a waste container. Clearing a garden without these supplies is not safe.

Removal of plants and shrubs

The first thing you want to do when clearing a garden is to remove plants and shrubs. Start by pruning overgrown plants and removing unwanted greenery. Then dig out the plants, including the roots, to ensure they don't regrow. 

Disposal of garden waste

Disposing of garden waste is an important part of clearing a garden. Collect all garden waste, such as branches, leaves and grass, and ensure that it is disposed of properly. You can choose to rent a waste container or hire professionals such as a gardener or ZSM Home Clearance who can remove the garden waste for you. At ZSM Woningontruiming you do not have to remove this yourself, but we can take care of this for you. Clearing your garden is also no problem for us.

Remove paving and other structures

If your garden has paving or other structures such as a pond, gazebo or pergola, it is important to remove these as well. This may take a little more time and effort, especially if the structures are securely installed. Make sure you use the correct tools and proceed with caution to avoid damage to the surrounding area. This way you can completely empty and tidy up the garden.

Garden clearing costs

The cost of clearing a garden can vary depending on several factors. Here are some important factors that can affect costs:

Size of the garden

The size of your garden plays a role in determining the costs of clearing a garden and removing it. In general, the larger the garden and therefore more square meters, the more time and labor is required, and therefore higher costs. Do you only want to pay for emptying? Then this is also possible.

Nature of the work

The nature of the work, such as removing plants, shrubs and structures, can also affect costs. Clearing a garden often involves more work than just tidying up. Some gardens may have more overgrown plants or complex structures that require extra effort or consider digging up the garden. Would you like to have the garden emptied? Then you will of course make it a lot easier for yourself because clearing a garden may cost a bit, but you don't have to do anything yourself.
