Westchester Dirt Removal and Hauling

One of the many benefits of having a backyard is to enjoy the small glimpses of Mother Nature at her finest. Whether that’s with a blooming garden or by inviting in some friendly winged friends you’re sure to get hours of relaxing time in an atmosphere like that. Attracting birds is easy when you have the right “invitation” set out for them. The first item on the agenda should be a birdbath. There are so many varieties of birdbaths that it will be hard to choose just one. What you want to keep in mind is that the bath should be easily accessible for your garden hose to allow for a quick cleanup and refilling. The birdbath should also be placed in a cool, shady spot as opposed to the direct sunlight. If you’ve never had a birdbath set up in your yard before it might surprise you at how popular it will become. No need to put out a sign; the birds will find it fast enough!

Building a birdhouse is another wonderful way to invite the winged creatures into your yard. Once again, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to DIY kits. The thing to keep in mind is that you can weatherproof and decorate the outside of the birdhouse to your heart’s content but leave the inside “raw.” The size of the hole of your birdhouse will also determine how big a bird you might end up attracting. If you want to go the extra mile and provide feed for the birds you won’t have a problem getting a birdhouse with a feeder attachment. If you’re lucky enough to have a family of bird take up residence then watch from a distance. You don’t want to get too close especially if momma bird is looking out for her little chickadees.

Setting up a small bird sanctuary is just one feature you can add to your backyard garden. You might want to make good use of that space by planting a veggie or herb garden. To accomplish that you’ll probably be digging up a patch of land and creating a pile of dirt. Don’t throw that dirt out; hire Junk King Hudson Valley to come by and pick it up for a proper disposal.

Although their title might imply that junk is their specialty, Junk King is equally adept at removing all kinds of yard waste both natural and manmade. The natural would be clomps of sod, fallen tree limbs, shrubs or any other chunk of growth that you want gone. On the manmade side would be all those things we bring into the yard that take up space but have lived out their usefulness. Things like an old basketball hoop, a kiddie pool, a swing set or even an abandoned tree fort. All of that can be cleared out with one appointment with the Junk King Hudson Valley. Make your garden grow by getting rid of the junk.

Alternatives to Westchester Dumpster Rentals

Dumpster diving has developed into a kind of organized urban outing. There are those unfortunate souls who depend on sorting through dumpsters in the back of restaurants or grocery stores for food. That has lead to several non-profit groups to join in on the “diving” to point out just how much food is wasted. A typical dumpster diving excursion can uncover perfectly edible food that can feed plenty of folks. Now, a nonprofit group called Community Solidarity Inc. is turning to dumpster diving in a way of finding school supplies for families in need.

During a recent outing the group found two filing cabinets, stacks of colored paper, badminton racquets, folders, a calculator and packages of pens and mechanical pencils all in perfect condition with a lot of the items still in their original packages. Those supplies will become part of the huge collective of supplies being handed out by the group as the school year gets underway. What does this have to do with your own thoughts of renting a dumpster? It just points out that a dumpster is like a magnet that can attract all kinds of “divers.”  That’s not exactly the type of thing you want sitting on your property, is it?

The other thing that a dumpster attracts are people who are looking to throw out bulky items. That’s why you’re thinking about renting one, right? It’s not a stretch to imagine you’ll have a dumpster put down in the front of your house and by the following day find it filled up with everyone else’s trash. There are some businesses who think they can outsmart the divers. They’ll rent a dumpster with a lid and a lock. That’s not very convenient for the user. What happens then is that people will still continue to toss out their trash only now the trash is sitting on the dumpster lid. Guess whose problem that is to deal with? If you’re starting to realize that a dumpster rental isn’t such a good idea then have no worries; there is an alternative and that would be Junk King Hudson Valley.
