Get Ready For Your Dallas Garden Planting

There is a new kind of gardening cropping up around Dallas and it has to do with straw. Straw bale gardens are finding their way into many backyard where the soil is less than desirable for growth. These special straw bales have been prepped by having fertilizer added into them through watering. That fertilizer acts as a natural compost. You can then plant directly into the bale and as the straw breakdowns, your veggies start to bloom. When the bale is completely broken down, you just bring in a new one. This is perfect for anyone with a backyard that is more concrete than lawn. It also helps with the layout as you simply have to line up the bales in any configuration that works for your space. Of course, it will help to clear that space before you bring in the bales. For that job, you only need to call Junk King.

Junk King provides the tools, the truck and the manpower to handle any type of cleanout. Typically, this is for homeowners who want to make room in their garage by having all the clutter hauled off. Or if someone has reached critical mass in their closet, then a call to Junk King can insure all the unwanted stuff can be removed in a matter of minutes. As for the yard work, this is where hiring Junk King will really make sense.

That two-man crew assigned to your appointment won’t have any problem loading up things like rusty patio furniture, a crusty grill or a broken lawnmower. They can also haul away auto parts, lumber or piles of scrap metal. If you’ve got stuff just sitting in your yard for no good reason, then turn it over to Junk King. That includes any big object that might have to be taken apart. Something like a swing set, a tool shed or even a deck can all be dismantled by the Junk King crew and loaded up on the truck.

Always remember that the bulk of what is collected by Junk King could make its way to a recycling facility. That holds true for all that yard waste including dirt and concrete. If Junk King can avoid making a trip to the landfill, they will consider that a good day! Try something new for your garden planting this year but start with a call to Junk King.

You might not be focused on getting rid of your clutter during your St. Patrick’s Day celebration but that clutter isn’t going anywhere. When you hire Junk King, you’ll be getting a company who is dedicated to a green way of doing business. It all comes down to the diversion rate. This is the percentage of collected junk that Junk King is able to divert away from local landfills. The goal is to keep as much junk out of a landfill as possible. The only thing junk does in a landfill is decompose and that is when potentially harmful materials can be released into our water and soil. Keep junk out of landfills and the environment is kept clean. As for Junk King, they are proud to maintain a diversion rate of 60%. That translates into literally tons of junk being recycled on a daily basis.

Not all recycled junk is about grinding or melting. You can also recycle junk by donating it a charity. Many local organizations accept all kinds of unwanted stuff and Junk King makes weekly drop offs to these charities. This happens after they’ve sorted through all the truckloads of junk they collect. Furniture goes into one pile and clothes in the other. There can also be a pile for books, toys, appliances and household goods. Even if those items are bit scuffed up, they can still be put to use. Junk King doesn’t want anything to go to waste.

Because the Junk King crews do all the sorting, you don’t have to worry about what can be recycled. You also don’t even have to ask. Junk King will always recycle junk without asking. It’s just how they roll!
