I am new to this gardening malarkey but i had a massive mound of mud in
my garden which the gardener decided to leave there and now i have a bit
more time to myself i have been turning my hand to gardening but still
with these mounds i am thinking of hiring a mini digger but the cheapest
i can find is this tool hire company called national tool hire shops
does anyone know any cheaper ones?

There's a bunch of rental places. Home improvement centres (big box
hardware stores) often rent tools, and there are a few national chains
(Big-4 rents I believe is one). I've generally rented from the local
outfits myself, but more often than not, I just buy the tool,
sometimes seeking a good deal on a secondhand one.
FTR, you're posting to the international USENET group rec.gardens, and
not indicating where you're located -- readers are left to make the
judgement call that since you're using gardenbanter.co.uk you might be
in the UK, though I'd wager I could set up a gardenbanter account
easily enough, despite being in California...
You're not at all clear on what it is you need to do and the size of
this excavation... you may get by with a wheelbarrow and a shovel or
your job may require a bulldozer. Before even thinking DIY call in a
few contractors to give you estimates and meanwhile pick their brains
as to what all your job entails... and only then if you feel confident
you can DIY proceed, or hire someone. Remember the adage about DIY
that the cheap often ends up expensive.
