Gardening & Lawnmowing
A beautiful garden is well worth the effort and time you put into to creating it. From planning and planting to nurturing your plants, it’s a large project to make something green and wonderful for your property. What many people don’t realise immediately is that gardens require constant maintenance. Although you can sometimes go a week or two without putting on your gardening gloves, at some times of the year you will be required to get to work multiple times a week.
Hiring somebody to take care of your hedging and pruning will cut down the majority of the time demanded by your garden. It will also help keep things happy and healthy so that you can enjoy your produce in the summer and spring.
Let’s look at some of the common things people want to know about hedging and pruning.
How complex is pruning?
Pruning actually takes a lot of knowledge and experience to do properly. It is easy to damage a plant by pruning it incorrectly. You will need to understand when and why to swap between formative pruning and maintenance pruning.
When should I prune my hedges?
Your hedges need to be pruned about twice a year. For evergreen hedges, pruning should be done in spring. Deciduous hedges should be pruned in winter.

Your lawn should be a point of pride – it should be kept neat and beautiful to compliment your building and make your property look spectacular. Many people enjoy gardening and maintaining a nice lawn. It can be a fun, rewarding and relaxing hobby. But most of the time we are too busy to take care of these kinds of things ourselves. Although a lot of us choose to forget about it and let our lawns become overgrown, it’s worth considering hiring a professional. Experts can make your lawn look beautiful and they work very quickly.
Let’s have a look at some of the things people want to know about lawn care.
Should I hire a lawn care expert?
This depends on the size and complexity of your lawn. If you have a lawn on a business property, you should absolutely hire experts. They will give your business an extra level of professionalism and style. If you are considering a lawn care team for your private residence, the most important question is – am I able and likely to do these jobs myself? If the answer is no, give Taskforce a call on 13TASK.
Should I remove grass clippings from the lawn?
Grass clippings decompose and make you lawn healthy. You should remove clippings only if there are too many. This can happen if you cut your grass too infrequently.

Blocked gutters can be a nuisance. A blockage will cause your drain water to back up and overflow. The water may be redirected and end up running down your building. This can cause problems such as rotting wood, or water leaking into your home. You can also end up with pipes that are clogged with leaves and debris. This often makes is a much more difficult problem to overcome.
Cleaning out guttering can be a simple chore. But if you’ve left it a long time, you might be better off hiring somebody to do the work for you. Clearing out the guttering system can sometime require dismantling, and may be a time consuming task if you need to do the entire building at once.
Let’s look at some of the issues around cleaning out gutters.
How do gutters get clogged?
The most likely culprits for block gutters are leaves. Trees often overhang gutters and during autumn, their leaves can fall into the gutters and cause blockages. Moss and dirt can also build up on the floor of the gutter and increase the likelihood of a blocked gutter.
How can I tell if my gutters need to be cleaned?
Water overflowing during rain is the strongest indicator that your gutters need to be cleaned out.
How can I avoid the need for regular gutter cleaning?
You can hire a Taskforce gutter cleaner to install wire mesh and screens over your gutters to prevent leaves and debris falling in and clogging your gutters. Methods like this will reduce the chance of clogged gutters, but you will likely still require some amount of regular gutter cleaning.
