Decluttering

My client had, by her own admission, too many clothes, and knew she had to declutter. Her clothes were distributed between three wardrobes, with no particular theme. I suggested that we create three distinct wardrobes, High Summer, Winter and her working wardrobe for right now. I suggested that she then move across items into Winter as the Season changed but in reverse, moved High Summer items into her working wardrobe again, as Spring changed into Summer.

These photos show before and after my decluttering. The cupboards and drawers were cleared and tidied, including shoes which were stored in a trunk. I sorted her clothes into colours, re-hung them on matching hangers and created a better wardrobe both visibly and practically. I tidied her chest of drawers and created separate drawers for lounge wear, underwear and sleep wear.

Gardening

As a professional declutterer I can pretty much turn my hand to anything. I offer my services on Helpfulpeeps which is pretty much a swap service. However, I have recently been offered a couple of small jobs for a lady who is disabled and I’m soon to do a garden for a blind gentleman.

I love gardening. I come with tools and also take the waste away. I am working on a design project at the moment too.

Garden project with clearing, jet-washing and designing patio area

A client asked me to visit a property owned by her parents. They wanted to rent the property out and my client asked me to assess the garden and come up with some ’design’ ideas as well as a tidying up and cleaning. The main wall of the garden was covered in ivy, the stone paving needed jet-washing. I sourced some plants and a few stone mushrooms too (!) to make the garden look more desirable. The ivy wall needed clearing, but I cleared the majority of the ivy without compromising the wall's safety. I jet-washed the patio and paving leading up the garden.

The garden took about three days to complete and I really loved being involved in this project (before and after photos of the ivy wall and patio below).
