Posted on November 14, 2016 in Tips

I don’t know about you, but the idea of sacrificing a weekend raking, trimming, and dealing with green waste disposal is not my idea of time well spent. But now that fall is in full force and the fallen leaves have completely covered your lawn, this is the perfect time to tackle that huge mess you call a backyard. If you want a beautiful yard before the winter sets in, here are some quick and easy cleanup tips to help you complete your fall chores faster.

1. Come Prepared

A great way to avoid sabotaging your cleanup project before it even has a chance to start is to come prepared. Make sure you have everything you need to see your yard cleanup and green waste removal job through. Your backyard decluttering inventory should include gardening gloves, big trash bags, clippers, shears, and a positive attitude (after all, outdoorsy stuff can be fun). The better prepared you are, the less chance you’ll get discouraged and throw in the towel.

2. Make a Plan for you green waste removal in Vancouver

Taking on a huge cleanup project can be overwhelming if you don’t have a plan. Nothing can kill your motivation faster than staring at your yard, paralyzed, not knowing where to begin. Creating a plan of attack will help you break your project into smaller more manageable tasks. Figure out what you want to do first and then move on from there. When it comes to big yard cleanup jobs, slow and steady wins the race.

3. Remove Landscape Waste

Still not sure where to begin? It might be a good idea to set your sights on the green waste and landscape debris removal portion first. Once you’ve cleared out all the bulky stuff, you’ll have room to move around to take care of the smaller details later. Get rid of leaves and branches, as well as tree stumps, soil, sod, and rocks. Don’t have the time, tools, or tolerance to haul away your landscape debris?

You can always get a professional junk removal company to do the heavy lifting for you.

4. Trim Trees and Shrubs

Overgrown, broken, and dead limbs from trees and shrubs can make your backyard look like a jungle. Pruning your trees and shrubs will not only help keep them healthy and strong, but also makes your backyard spring cleanup a breeze. A pair of sharp shears and an electric hedge clipper should help make short work of your trimming duties.

5. Handle the Smaller Yard Waste

Now that you’ve got the heavy hauling and trimming done, it’s time to get rid of the smaller yard waste. Rake up all those leave and twigs and put them in big trash bags. For an eco-friendly alternative, you can always compost the dead leaves and yard trimmings. It’s a great way to improve your garden and enhance your plants, not to mention reduce your carbon footprint.
