The Trusted Name in Yard Work and Yard Cleanup

Experienced

When you hire yard help, you want to be sure that your chosen professional knows what they’re doing. Yard work takes a particular set of skills and some strength, making it unsuitable for everyone. When you use Handy to find someone to take care of the yard work, you can be sure that they’ll show up with the know-how to get the job done, as quickly and as effectively as possible, along with a few tricks of their own that will help to give your yard the makeover it needs. Why waste your time digging through online ads for yard cleanup services, when you can find the best local yard help through Handy?

Skilled and Capable

When you use Handy, you can be sure that backyard work service professionals you’re connected with have the expertise and skills to get your yard back in order. Using the equipment you already have, they’ll work hard to rake up those pesky leaves or do any of the yard work you need them to. Backyard help professionals that use Handy are all vetted, screened, and background-checked, so you know you’re dealing with reliable and capable professionals. If you can’t be there to let them in, do as many of our customers do, and leave a key for them in a lockbox or with a neighbor.

Reliable

Yard clean up professionals who use Handy will turn up on time, ready to get started straight away. There’s nothing worse than wasting a day waiting for a yard work service to arrive when you could book yard help to arrive at a time that’s best for you. When you book backyard work services on Handy, you can see the ratings and reviews of your professional cleaner before they arrive, so you can be sure that they have a history of excellence.

Flexible

Flexibility is an important quality, but one that large yard cleanup companies tend to overlook. When you use Handy to find help with your yard work, you can add those little extras to the itinerary that might fall beyond the abilities of bigger yard help services. Whether its leaf removal, weed removal, or light debris disposal, your professional will work with you to give you the service you want. Flexibility is also an integral part of our operation; we know that our customers’ schedules don’t always go as planned. If something comes up, give us a minimum of 24 hours’ notice and we’ll reschedule the appointment to a more convenient time without any fees or extra charges!

The Best Yard Work and Yard Cleanup

Affordable yard clean up services

Using Handy puts you in control. Instead of dealing with the high prices and long wait times offered by large businesses, Handy provides access to an extremely cost and time-effective alternative. When you use the platform to find backyard help, you’ll be provided with a clear and competitive quote so you can make sure that the service fits your budget and your needs. And there are no hidden fees to worry about; the price you’re shown is the price you’ll pay.

Find yard help in your area

Handy has connected millions of customers with thousands of professionals across two continents, for many years. However, while those numbers might appear big, we like to keep things local. When you use the platform to book yard cleanup services, you’ll be matched with the professionals local to your area. With them nearby, you won’t have to wait for hours for them to show up!

Quick and convenient

It takes just 60 seconds to book cost-effective yard clean up services in your area when you use the Handy platform. All you need to do is download the app on your cell phone or log in to the Handy website via your laptop. Enter your zip code and a few details about when you need yard help and you’ll be all set. We’ll match you with a local yard cleanup professional and you’ll have a pristine and clean yard in no time at all. In addition, services booked through the Handy platform are always covered by the Handy Happiness Guarantee.
