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
    If you have old outdoor furniture, an unwanted deck, or a broken hot tub, take the steps to have it removed.

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.
