Backyard Clean-Outs

Backyard clean-outs are a hallmark of autumn. As the leaves turn and the plant life quiets down in preparation of winter, it’s much easier to judge the state of your yard and make improvements. Junk King Austin has some tips to help you with your backyard clean-outs:

  • Prepare
    It is only frustrating to clear a Saturday for yard work only to discover that you don’t have gloves or a shovel. Take stock of your tools and make sure everyone has a pair of gloves and that there are plenty of trash bags, shears, rakes, and shovels.
  • Assess and Organize
    While you’re assessing your tools, take a cursory glance at the space you’ll be working in. What needs to happen for your backyard clean-out to be a success? Jot down a list to help you from feeling overwhelmed when it’s time to work.
  • Feed the Plants
    Plants need extra nutrients in the colder months. Help them along with some fertilizer.
  • Get Rid of the Excess

How To Improve Curb Appeal

Even before entering, the first impression of a home has been made. Learning how to improve curb appeal is not difficult and can often be done in small bites. Here are 5 things you can do to boost the curb appeal of your home:

1. Freshen Your Door
The door of any home draws the eye, so make sure your door is ready to be noticed. A fresh paint job, polishing the metal fixtures, and cleaning off any dirt goes a long way.

2. Be Symmetrical
Symmetry is visually appealing and easy to accomplish. Focusing on the doorway, arrange plants and light fixtures in pairs.

3. Spruce Up The Mailbox
Coordinate the paint of your mailbox to match the trim or colors of the exterior of your home. Also consider surrounding your mailbox with pretty plants.

4. Add Window Boxes
Charming and sweet, window boxes add instant curb appeal. Be sure the window box matches the exterior decor of your home, and fill it with bright flowers.

5. Update Your Landscaping
Have you been neglecting your trees, planter beds, or shrubbery? Pruning and pulling weeds is a great start to the renewal of your landscaping. Go the extra mile and update your border or plant new flowering plants.

September Gardening & Yard Waste

September is an important month for gardeners. The month of transition from summer to fall is the time for changes. Here are some things to remember for September gardening:

  •  September is the ideal month to feed lawns
  • Cut back rose bushes, butterfly bushes, and salvias by 1/3. Don’t forget to fertilize!
  • Perennial fall plants include: Iris, salvia, scabiosa, blackfoot daisy, lantana, marigolds, and coral honeysuckle
  • Vegetables to plant in September: broccoli, Brussels sprouts, greens, radishes, spinach, beets, carrots, peas, and chard

Lawn and garden care is time consuming and physically exhausting, but very rewarding work. However, figuring out what to do with yard waste (trimmings, leaves, etc) can be a pain. Junk-King Austin has you covered. We pick up yard waste, as well as anything unwanted in your tool shed, home, or garage. Give your back a break after all your hard work and let Junk-King Austin do your heavy lifting.

Yard Waste and Gardening In Texas

Texas is notorious for having hot summers. For those who want a fall vegetable garden, this means putting in some extra sweat in July and August. These are the perfect months to put in raised beds, till the earth, and prepare the soil.

If you are new to gardening, here are some tips:

  •  Hot, dry weather can be difficult to start seeds. Try soaking larger seeds (beans, peas, okra, etc) overnight between two wet paper towels.
  • Frequent watering (several times a day) immediately after planting can help seeds germinate. After it sprouts, don’t forget to cut back on water – young plants can drown.
  • Although some authorities recommend full sun for plants like peppers and tomatoes, we understand that Texas summers can be scorching. Try to plant your garden in an area that provides shelter from the afternoon sun.

If you’re considering getting some yard work done, keep Junk-King Austin in mind. We haul yard waste (among other things, including appliances and other unwanted items), meaning you can take a well earned break from the Texas heat while we tidy up your property!
