Leaf clearance in Hertfordshire can be an unwanted timely task especially if you live in Welwyn Garden City where there are plenty of trees blowing in the wind this autumn causing leafs to drop from the trees into your front and rear gardens.

Often residents are unhappy about all the leafs blowing into there front garden from trees on the roadside verges causing untidy garden and dangerous paths.

Many gardens have trees in them and often trees at the back of the property dropping leafs into your boundaries which often land on the lawn which can then lead to the grass being starved of light which causes it to become diseased.

Autumn leafs cause problems with ponds and swimming pool filters which can damage vital parts to become damaged as well as looking unsightly. Handyman WGC can help remove leafs from ponds and pools to help keep them in good condition.

Handyman WGC also undertakes other landscaping tasks.

Moving belongings from a house can be a stressful time especially if there are a lot of bulky items that just will not fit in the car and require a large van for the removal of household items.

There are various reasons for people using our services, like if your moving home and need a house clearance service in Hertfordshire because you are unable to take your belongings with you or perhaps your downsizing your home clearing out old clutter to remove and dispose of furniture and rubbish which is not in a saleable condition. 

In the unfortunate circumstances of dealing with a deceased estate it can seem like a daunting task at an already difficult time, Handyman WGC can help take some pressure off when you require a home clearance offering some careful and considerate compassion towards the removal of furniture items, old clothes etc.

Handyman WGC can accommodate big and small jobs from an entire household clearance to just wanting to clear one room out in the home or remove valuables.

No need to worry about recycling because items in good condition are passed on where available through selling sites, charity shops and any other identifiable means to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Failure to pass goods on to be recycled get another chance at the waste disposal sites where items are sorted further into recyclable materials again reducing rubbish sent to landfill to help create a better environment for the future.

The loft is a typical dumping ground in the average house where old clutter that is not used any more but your to sentimental to throw the stuff away in the bin then consequently gets stored for a few years with no use. Do not be a victim of this hoarding behaviour and call us today to come and clear your loft out and remember rubbish out of the loft gives a good chance for a clear mind.

If your thinking of clearing out the shed once and for all after looking at the old items to be disposed of then its a good time to make use of our shed clearance service to gain a clear shed for the summer.

Handyman WGC is on standby ready to come to your property and fit a new outside tap so you can complete them outdoor jobs like watering the grass in the garden to help keep it lovely and green or perhaps the garden flowers need watering to keep them looking healthy.

Outside taps can be a welcome addition to the garden especially for attaching the hose pipe ready to get cleaning the patio area and garden furniture ready for the summer BBQ party.

Plumbing is not everyone's speciality and many people would prefer to stay clear of any plumbing jobs and get an expert in, and that is where Handyman WGC can help you with fitting a outside water tap.


  1. Decide where the outside tap is going to be located.
  2. Where is the water supply going to be taken from? (The water supply would normally be taken from under the kitchen sink area)
  3. Decide what will be the best outside tap solution? (I.E - Should I buy an outside tap kit or get the plumbing put in correctly with solid pipework?)
  4. Think about limiting the exposure to the weather elements with freezing by making sure the tap pipework is exposed to the minimum amount of outside element to help prevent unnecessary freezing conditions. (You may want to consider changing the taps position to achieve this)
  5. Pipework will tap into an existing cold water supply to feed the outside tap.


There are several ways an outside tap can be plumbed in and really is personal preference.

Simple tap kits are available and normally consist of a self cutting in isolator valve with a piece of rubber hose and an outside tap to fit to the wall which are a pretty inexpensive kit to purchase from around £10.

The Pros
Tap kits are relatively easy to fit and are a cheap alternative to installing an outside tap.

The Cons
A tap kit is not always the best solution to use and could cause future problems with water leaks due to splits occurring in the rubber pipe which become weaker over a period of time.
The water pressure may be reduced due to the self cutting isolator valve tapping into an existing pipe and can also be problematic with leaking valves.

Plumbing in an outside tap with solid pipework is another option to consider which consists of using solid pipe like copper piping or plastic pipe material which offer high durability and reliability with the parts costing of around £25.

The Pros
Solid pipework for an outside tap is the better option for long term reliability because the pipe is stronger and the fittings allow better water flow to increase water pressure with less chance of future water leaks.

The Cons
Harder to fit and more labour intensive therefore installation costs will be a bit higher.

To have an outside tap installed behind the water supply on the exterior wall it would cost from £80

If you answered yes to the above decking question asked then you have come to the right place.

Handyman WGC recently transformed this decking platform in a customers garden in Welwyn Garden City.
The Decking pictured above was looking old and tired before Handyman WGC revived the decking to totally transform the look giving a new finish to make the garden look like a nice area to sit back and relax in on a nice sunny day.

The previous wood stain was faded and a good percentage of the decking boards were covered in green algae and moss, therefore our handy service scrubbed and cleaned the decking wood to remove the algae and green moss before painting with anti slip decking stain and wood preserver.

The anti slip decking treatment not only improves the look but also makes the decking safer to walk on, especially in the wet after a dose of rain resulting in the common problem with decking where the boards get very slippery like ice and can be very dangerous.

For this decking project we used a quality branded staining paint  by Cuprinol in a boston teak colour which looks fabulous an took two tins of paint to complete the treatment giving two coats.

We purchased the Cuprinol anti slip decking paint from screwfix for its stability, hard wearing properties and long lasting weather protection to keep the garden area looking in tip top condition all year with added algicide to protect it from green algae and mould growth.
