Mulch Delivery &/or Shrub Removal in Basel?

Hi,

Previous tenants left me the lucky recipient of one of the worst yards in Basel. Woot!

I've managed to clear the weeds away from the front yard, but I'm left with two unsightly and (according to my neighbor) annoying shrubs. Does anyone here do or recommend a business who will remove these shrubs for me?

Also, I'd like to spread mulch on my front & back yards. As I lack a vehicle, I do not relish the idea of lugging bags of mulch on trams, etc. Does anyone here do or recommend a business who will deliver mulch?

BTW, I live in Basel ~~ specifically, Bruderholz.

Thanks!

I used these guys. Friendly, helpful. Frau Hunziker speaks English. Not massively cheap though... How big are these shrubs? Impossible to move yourself? Will the landlord be ok with it?

For mulch delivery, most garden centres will deliver for a charge. We're redoing our patio, and Coop Bau arranged delivery straight from the supplier for us.

Re: Mulch Delivery &/or Shrub Removal in Basel?

If I bought an axe, I could probably remove both by myself. One is a forsythia & the other is some sort of viney-tree like thing that annoys my neighbor because it winds itself into her shutters & blinds.

The forsythia is nice, but too close to the wall. I'd like to move it to the back yard, if I can salvage enough of its roots.

The other thing doesn't bother me, except insofar as I'd like my neighbor to stop complaining at me.

The state of the lawn is so bad that, when I interviewed for this place, the landlord was very keen on having me redo the lawn (& said they would send help at the first sign of spring-- ha!) So, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to ask for permission to clean up my yard, but if they send anyone by to tsk tsk at me, I'll gladly step aside & let them finish the job however they like!
