1 Special Event

What are you planning?

We’re planning to throw a large party out in the garden to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary.

We want to invite around 50 guests, have a BBQ, some music and dance until the small hours.

We’ll also need some kind of heating in case it gets cold in the evening.

Take a look at our range of outside lighting. Our powerful Flood Lights, Fluorescent Lights or Mast Lights are great for lighting large areas.

Our Pod Lights and Festoon Party Lights offer more subtle options.

Check out our Event Heating options too – being in the UK it always gets a bit chilly.

You might want to take a look at our range of range of Power Generators as you’ll probably need extra power.

Your existing BBQ will be a bit too small, we have a range of large event-sized BBQs. Don’t forget the Calor Gas!

2 DIY Tool Hire Bourton-on-the-Water

What problem are you trying to solve? 

We want to remove a tree stump in our garden to make some space for a vegetable patch.

We have a large oak tree stump in the garden that we want to remove safely.

The machinery will need to fit down the side of our semi-detached house which is quite narrow.

We have a range of sizes Tree Stump Grinders to suit different types of jobs. They have powerful petrol engines, are easy to use and will save you many hours of trying to dig the stump out of the ground.

The smaller ones are also narrow enough to fit through the tightest of spaces, yet still powerful enough to get the job done.

We also hire Rotovators and Turf Cutters providing a quick and effective way of creating your vegetable patch.

Take a look at our Garden Maintenance & Design section for more tips and advice.

3 Emergency

What’s happened?

We’ve had a water leak and our bathroom upstairs is now flooded.

A pipe was leaking in our upstairs bathroom – it has now been repaired.

However, the water has leaked into a room downstairs and has soaked into the walls and carpets.

You’ll need to remove all the water then clean and dry all affected rooms quickly and effectively.

Our Submersible Puddle Pumps are best for removing shallow puddles of water.

The Hilti VC40 Industrial-Strength Vacuum will easily remove water from carpets.

Our powerful Carpet Cleaners will leave your carpets looking brand new again.

Large Fans will circulate the air and our Industrial Dehumidifiers will also help to dry out damp rooms. We recommend that you keep a dehumidifier running 24-hours a day for at least a week to be most effective.

Read our expert guide to dehumidifier hire and what do to with a flooded house.

Will you need to redecorate  following the clean up? If so visit our In the Home section.

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.
