GUTTER GUARD INSTALLATION AND HEDGEHOGS
Gutter guard installation can dramatically decrease the amount of times you need to have your gutters cleared.
Moss, leaves and other debris can build up in your gutter system over time causing them to flow insufficiently and cause serious problems. Gutters without guards or hedgehogs should be cleared annually, where as gutters with guards can be cleaned every 5 years!

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I CAN USE TO STOP BLOCKAGES
Yes, you can install leaf guards into the top of the gutters downpipe to stop any debris clogging up the swan necks. These don’t offer the same protection as gutter guards or hedgehogs because smaller pieces of moss and other things like pine needles are still able to pass through them, but they are a much more cost effective option if you don’t want to spend a lot of money installing gutter guards or brushes.
In conclusion, gutter guards or hedgehogs are a good idea if you want to clean your gutters less often. However, check out the price compared with having your gutters cleaned professionally on a regular basis, at least (annually) to make sure it’s the right thing for your property.
