Gardening Equipment Hire FAQs

For more specific examples of jobs in the garden when hiring is easily the best option take a look at some of the most Frequently Asked Questions by our customers.

All gardens have trouble with moss at some point. Fear not though, moss is a temporary problem and usually occurs after a drought or waterlogging.  It's best to hire a scarifier to remove moss. A scarifier is really easy to use and looks a lot like a lawn mower but has thin rake-like spikes that extracts the moss but leaves your grass intact. The best time to scarify your garden is early Spring and early Autumn. Once you've removed the moss the best way to keep it at bay is to keep your grass plentiful and vigorous. Consider hiring a lawn aerator before you do any re-seeding as this will increase oxygen flow to the lawn and will also give a little bit of protection for the seeds from birds. Hire a garden fertiliser spreader to encourage your grass to grow. Hiring a mower to cut your grass regularly will also help you keep your lawn healthy. To get your lawn nice and flat like a Premier League football pitch hire the Bomag 55 roller or the water filled garden roller.

We'd recommend starting with the wildest, most overgrown areas by aiming to remove as much of the bulkiest flora first. It's best to hire a heavy duty garden strimmer – it's powerful enough to tame most overrun spaces.  Next up, take a look at our range of powerful flail mowers for hire – they're great for really long grass, brambles, bracken and scrub land. We also have a number of top-of-the-range rotary lawn mowers for hire – for when the grass has been reduced to a more regular length.

Yes to both. If there's just one of you on the job try hiring a manual post hole borer. If there's two or more of you, and the job's quite substantial, hire one of our petrol-powered post hole borers. If you've got a large, tall hedge to tame try hiring a long reach hedge cutter, some podium steps or a scaffold tower to help you reach the top of it.

It's best to hire a stump grinder to remove a tree stump. They're easy to use and will save you a lot of time and effort hacking away at the tree stump.  Once the surface of the stump is out of the way you might want to hire a micro digger to remove the roots – they'll fit through the smallest of gaps and can operate in the tightest of spaces.

Much depends on the size and age of the tree. Hire one of our large diesel wood chippers to deal with the largest of trees and the chunkiest of tree branches. For most jobs in the garden you'll be fine hiring a garden shredder.
