Yard Cleanup Tips in Time for Winter

The days are getting shorter. “Spring forward, fall back” is the tried-and-true saying for daylight-saving time. While that might be great for keeping accurate time, fall definitely isn’t the time to fall behind on yard maintenance.

There are a number of steps that you can take right now to ensure the healthiest lawn possible come next spring. Removing leaves, weeds, and unwanted shrubs are a must in terms of fall yard cleanup.

What is Yard Waste? and What to Do About It 

Yard waste is a fairly broad category but it basically includes items like leaves, grass clippings, and tree trimmings (organic yard waste) as well as fencing, plasterboard, shingles, and patio furniture (inorganic yard waste). But Junk King Fresno will remove anything at all from your yard including construction debris, old furniture or anything else that has accumulated in or around your home. 

Organic yard waste is the kind that can be composted, whereas inorganic yard waste can be composted.By weight, grass is said to comprise about half of all yard waste, whereas leaves and brush largely make up the rest. By volume, leaves are the biggest contributor overall to yard waste. Yard waste is a pretty heavy hitter when it comes to municipal solid waste (MSW) in that it ranks third by weight, after paper products (e.g., paper towels and soil napkins) and food waste. 

The average person in North America produces about two hundred pounds of yard waste every year.

Currently, half the states in the US restrict or outright ban yard waste disposal in terms of municipal curbside pickup, but Junk King continues to take all kinds of yard waste. Don’t spend time worrying about what can be left at the curb for pick up in Fresno, call your local junk removal experts instead!

Understand You Have Options 

Junk King can also help you get rid of yard waste like branches, clippings, and lumber out back. If you’re looking to get rid of any of the following yard waste items, then Junk King can help. 

  • Branches
  • Clippings
  • Stumps

  • Sod
  • Landscaping Debris
  • Fencing
  • Firewood
  • Lumber
  • Old Timber 
  • Plasterboard

You can select full-service junk removal. This service means that you select a date and time tailored to your schedule and a junk removal professional will drop by within a two-hour service window, provide a 100% guaranteed written estimate, and get to work once you agree on a price. 

For yard cleanups, Junk King offers three different sizes of self-service dumpster rentals. These are roll-off dumpsters that can be delivered to your driveway on your schedule and picked up, for example, three days later. 


Whether you choose a self-service dumpster rental or full-service junk removal, you will only pay for the space that you actually utilize within the dumpster.

You can throw thorny debris and huge tree limbs and branches into the dumpster without breaking it down or squeezing these items into lawn bags. Fencing, outdoor patio furniture, inflatable pools, or swing sets can all be put into a dumpster.

Junk King takes basically every type of residential and commercial waste, excluding hazardous waste like motor oil and solvent-based paints. For yard cleanup, this means that Junk King will take both organic and inorganic yard waste. 

Continue Watering and Mowing Lawn 

The lawn care professionals also recommend that you keep watering and mowing your lawn to the very end of the season. The end goal with fall yard work is allowing your lawn to be as vibrant as possible come winter.

Part of reaching that goal is enabling your lawn to withstand frigid temperatures in the winter months ahead. One way that you can make that happen is by allowing more sunlight to reach your lawn’s soil. 

By setting your lawn mower blades to one of its lower settings for the last two mows of the season more sunlight will ultimately reach the crown of your lawn’s grass; this nourishes the soil and allows it to become dryer in the spring, facilitating quicker growth in a few months’ time. 

That said, the lawn care professionals add that you should only keep cutting your grass if it continues to grow. If the temperature drops consistently below 50 degrees, then the grass will not grow enough to both with mowing every week. 

Use Tarp for Leaf Cleanup 

Using a plastic tarp can make leaf cleanup much easier. The basic idea is to use a rake or leaf blower to direct the leaves onto a sprawled-out tarp, put a thread through the tarp’s grommets, then pull the spring snap (or carabiner) tightly to create a movable bag of leaves from a tarp! 

Clean Out the Gutters 

Getting leaves and gunk from your gutters while the temperature is still relatively mild can pay dividends later. By putting on a pair of plastic gloves and grabbing a handful of leaves from your gutters in the fall you can sidestep costly roof repairs down the road. 

If there’s a lot of gunk or solidified dirt in your gutters, then you might consider reaching for a garden trowel to uproot the debris. With solidified dirt, adding a touch of water can help to make it gloopy enough to grab and dispose of; add enough water and the dirt can run out the gutter, once the leaves are removed. 

The stream from a garden hose can get loosened dirt and smaller debris in your gutter to race down the downspout. Just remember to follow basic ladder safety tips, including not to actually stand on the top step of your ladder.

If you encounter a pesky clog while cleaning your gutters, then you might consider using a plumber’s auger to puncture through the debris. But whether you use your hands, a trowel, the stream from a garden hose, or plumber’s auger, you can rely on Junk King to take all of the leaves and gunk that arises from cleaning out your gutters this fall. 

Consider Giving Composting a Go 

Composting is the process of naturally recycling organic matter, such as leaves and food scraps. These can be turned into a valuable and eco-friendly fertilizer for your garden. 

Composted materials contain many plant nutrients and even fungi that help plants grow. Food scraps and yard waste comprise nearly a third of all of the stuff that people throw out, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

These can both be composted instead of being left at the curb for municipal pickup. The EPA breaks composting down into three basic components: browns, greens, and water.
