Your lawn can be a home to green grass and healthy plant growth. It can also be home to ugly waste and pests. You determine what your lawn becomes by choosing what stays on it. And this takes more than just weed pulling. So, what else do you want to thrive on your lawn along with your lush greens and lovely plants?
Certainly not the debris. Before choosing the garbage removal method to apply, let’s make sure we can weed out the debris from those that are meant to stay.
What can you consider as lawn debris?
A considerable portion of your yard waste comprises of dead leaves and flowers, grass clippings, pruned branches, dried twigs, dead plants and weeds and even rocks.
These wastes occupy a great portion of landfills as they don’t belong in your yard. To keep your plants healthy and attractive, dead leaves and flowers must be removed regularly. Long grass cuttings must also be raked away. Most importantly, keep diseased plants away from all the healthy ones.
You don’t want them spoiling the good ones. This goes the same for dead weeds, especially those treated with herbicides. Trash removal is a vital part of your lawn care services list. It’s not just for the beauty of it, but for the longevity of the health of your lawn and plants.
“So now that we have identified what should stay and what should go from your lawn, what waste management methods are best for your yard?”
You might already have the Bagster in mind. But remember that not all wastes should go to the dumpster in a bag. Let’s begin with the byproducts of your lawn care maintenance. All that mowing, weeding, pruning, and other lawn care methods create a pile of debris you don’t want to keep in your lawn.
But you don’t want them thrown away with regular waste disposal either. Believe me, you don’t. Did you know that these dead leaves, flowers, twigs, branches, and wood shavings make for great compost? You can have them taken away by lawn trash removal services. Lawn trash removal agencies turn these collected materials into compost while you pay for the service. But if you have some space in your backyard for your own compost, it would be great to simply keep your debris in that pit and produce your own compost.
Imagine the advantage of having your own compost pile in your garden. Supply nutrients to your plants with your own natural formula. Take care in keeping the balance in the content of your compost, though. It is best to have the disease-free and pest-free plants in your compost. Those treated with herbicides should be out.
A balance of green grass clippings and weeds without seeds and brown dried leaves and flowers should be in your compost. Grass clippings can even add nutrients to your lawn without being placed in a compost. If they’re not too long, leave them on the lawn for a little bit of grass recycling.
“Looks like you are all set for your yard waste removal. If you’re ever wondering how much the cost is against DIY maintenance, take a look at the prices and decide which works for you.”
Lawn debris removal prices vary depending on how much and what variety you have. Tree removal comes in different rates, so you may count that out. It does not go with the rest of your lawn waste. So, which yard debris disposal method is best for your lawn? You decide.
