Monterey Patio Furniture Disposal

As the summer begins to wind down hopefully you had a good season outdoors on your patio. Nothing can be spending a cool evening with a glass of wine and some good friends. Or a lazy Sunday afternoon curled up in the shade with a good book. This summer season could have given you the opportunity to assess the status of your patio furniture especially if that became a hub for you and your family. Did your patio furniture hold up? Did it get baked in the sun? Did a surprise rain storm soak it? The answer to any one of those question could determine if you should be in the market for new patio furniture. If so then you’re in luck because this is the perfect time of the year to make a purchase like that.

At the end of summer, retailers know you’ll be thinking about the fall and upcoming holidays. Don’t be surprised to find Halloween decorations already on display. To make room for the fall merchandise, retailers are going to need to clear the floor of their summer stock. That means the patio furniture has got to go. Translation?  You’re going to find some amazing deals.

Before you head out to score some new patio furniture take a moment to consider how you want to use this space. Did you end up spending having a lot of dinners out there? Maybe it’s time for a bigger table? Would a table with an umbrella stand in the middle be a benefit? Now would be the time for that kind of upgrade. If you want to make that kind of change make sure to measure the space you have to work with. A table in a showroom can look deceptively smaller or bigger than what you might be used to.

Depending on the circumstances, your patio furniture could be outdoors year round. This means you need to make sure your new furniture will be of the durable variety. Did you notice that your cushions pick up too much dirt? Might be time to change the color scheme of your furniture. Even if you get an indestructible model made of wrought iron you still want to keep it clean. Hosing it down every couple of weeks is a good way to go. One material to be leery of is wicker. Although it looks great it doesn’t hold up to the elements. Wicker patio furniture is best used when it can remain in the shade like on a porch and protected from the elements.

As for getting rid of that old furniture that won’t be a problem as long as you hire Junk King Monterey. They’re the local business who specializes in all kinds of junk removal. You won’t be able to throw out your patio furniture. Let Junk King Monterey cart it off. While they are at it they can cart off any other junk you want gotten rid of. It’s the perfect way to end the summer.

Monterey Dirt Removal and Hauling

Looking for a new plant to grow in your Monterey garden? Have you thought about dahlias? Perhaps you should. Dahlias are an extremely popular ornamental plant that grows easily and blooms for an extended period of time throughout the years. As you might expect, the Monterey Bay Dahlia Society takes their dahlia growing very seriously. They happily provide advice for the three phases of dahlia-growing. These are: “selecting the plants, planting the tubers, and enjoying the blossoms. The planting season begins after the last frost (after April 1 for the Monterey Bay area, conservatively) and ends mid-June (earlier is better).”

According to the American Dahlia Society there are 18 forms of the dahlia, 15 colors or color combinations, and nine blossom size categories. That is a lot of dahlias to pick from. Fortunately, you can take in the Monterey Dahlia Society’s Annual Dahlia Show to get inspiration. Before you begin any planting you might have to make way in your garden by clearing out some old dirt and replace with enriched top soil. If you’ve got piles of dirt that need removing then your only call should be to Junk King Monterey.

Junk King makes it their business to help folks clear out the clutter in their lives. In some cases that clutter involves yard work. Sure you can toss out the occasional stack of tree trimmings in your weekly garbage but for bigger piles of yard waste you’re going to need Junk King. The Junk King loves a good pile of dirt. They’ll have the containers to fill with that dirt and know just where to dump it. They also enjoy piles of other junk like furniture, construction waste, appliances or old computers. Technically, you don’t even have to put things into a pile for Junk King to cart it off. You can just point to an item and tell the crew to take it away. That’s the big plus with hiring Junk King Monterey: you don’t have to do any lifting.

The other benefit is that Junk King Monterey isn’t going to surprise you with extra fees or hidden charges. The price you pay will be based on the amount of space you take up in their truck. That amount will be determined by a supervisor who will make a pre-pickup visit to your home. Once that price is locked in it won’t change. Actually, it might change if the amount of stuff the ends up in the truck takes up less space than what was estimated. In that case, you’ll be given a refund! You just can’t beat that kind of pricing policy. Start with dirt removal and finish with a junk free home thanks to Junk King Monterey and get those dahlias growing.
