Preparing For A Large-Scale Landscaping Project


If you are planning on completely revamping your home's landscaping, there are a few steps you'll want to take to help ensure the project goes smoothly. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you get ready to redo your property's existing landscaping:

Rent A Roll-Off Dumpster

For a big project, you won't want to spend time loading lawn clippings, leaves, and other lawn debris into the paper bags your local trash pickup typically suggests you use. Instead, opt for a roll-off dumpster. Your dumpster provides a convenient way to unload all of your lawn waste, as well as other items you are getting rid of, such as garden gazebos or brick garden edging. Work with your dumpster rental company to arrange dates for delivery and pickup as well as where to place the container during your project.

Use A Wood Chipper

If you are removing large tree limbs, consider renting a wood chipper as part of your project. You can use the wood chips as mulch around flower beds and vegetable gardens as well as around the trees that will be staying on your property. This also provides a great alternative to throwing out the wood from your tree, as it allows you to reuse the materials in a new way. IF you are using a tree trimming service to cut down the trees, ask if they have a wood chipper that can be used on your property. The service can also remove tree stumps so you can fill in the ground and lay down fresh sod where the trees once stood.

Stock Up On Supplies

Create a staging area in your garage for the materials you'll need for your project, and then begin to stock up. Your landscaper can help you to determine what you will need to complete your project. This might include rocks for flower beds, mulch, seed, and plants. If you are planning to add flowers or other plants, place them on a table in your garage, grouping them into high-walled cardboard boxes. The combination of the table and box can help to keep pests at bay. Be sure to water the plants regularly until your project begins, and take them outside for sunlight each day.

With the right equipment and a handy staging area, you can begin to tackle your large-scale landscaping project. Talk to your landscaper, tree-trimming service, and a dumpster rental company like Tennessee Trash Service, L.L.C to make sure all of the materials and equipment you need will be in place for the start of your project.

How the Sanitation Industry Keeps Big Cities Clean

Hi there, my name is Jody Becker. Welcome to my website. I am here to talk to you about how the sanitation industry keeps cities clean. When I moved to a big city, I was shocked at the level of organization needed to keep the streets tidy. I paid close attention to how the sanitation workers serviced each area using their garbage, recycling and yard waste trucks. On this site, I hope to explore this topic in more detail to help everyone understand how these professionals perform their jobs. Please feel free to come by daily to learn more. Thank you for visiting my site.
