Most jobs are priced individually because there are many factors that must be taken into account, especially where pools and gardens are concerned. However some of our services are based on fixed fees and these are shown below.
Remember, asking us for an estimate or devis (quote) is free and we are always more than happy to come to your property to discuss your exact requirements.
We use our own equipment in your garden unless otherwise agreed.
We do not charge travel time so the prices shown are time on site.
The cost of gardening depends upon your garden and your needs.

Waste Removal Fees - Green Waste
Removing waste from a property requires time to unload, whether back at our base or at the dechetterie. That waste also then needs to be processed to a licensed waste disposal site and this incurs a cost too. Therefore each time we remove waste from your property we must make a charge.

Mixed waste or 'Tout Venant' in France is much more expensive to take to process as it needs to be sorted into different containers which makes it time consuming and in certain cases can incur high disposal fees.
The waste removal fee starts from €50 and time on site (TOS) is also charged for non green waste.

Skips in France are expensive and are often charged by weight. Where large volumes of debris are produced we will recommend the hire of a skip as the most cost effective means of disposing of the debris. Because we are not always able to know the exact cost until after the debris is processed, we will charge skip fees as per the skip company's invoice plus an arrangement fee of €75.
