Get Ready For Your Pittsburgh Garden Planting

The Pittsburgh Botanic Garden is set to open this spring and once it does, it is going to stay open all year long. These 460 acres of abandoned mining land areĀ  considered a “work in progress” as amateur and professional gardeners will continue to plant and cultivate the area. Just because the gardens are finished, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. The 10K “Race In The Garden” event is perfect opportunity to check out the area while getting into shape. If your own garden planting project is considered a “work in progress” then maybe it’s time to step up your game with a little help from Junk King.

Junk King are the professional junk haulers who have made it their mission to help homeowners and businesses clear out any amount of unwanted rubbish. This has resulted in literally tons of furnishings, appliances, clothes and household goods being loaded up and carted away. What does any of this have to do with garden planting? Junk King can also provide the same level of expert care when it comes to removing yard waste. That’s just what you’ll want to get done before the first seed goes in the ground.

Every appointment with Junk King comes with a capable two-man crew. This will be the team that is going to do all the hard work for you. In addition to any lifting and loading, the Junk King crew will be happy to clear your yard of overgrowth and debris. Take this opportunity to finally get rid of anything that is rusted, broken or beaten down by the elements. That can include a child’s playset, a tool shed or even an old lawnmower. None of these things can be tossed out in the garbage. Instead, leave them for the Junk King crew to pickup.

When the crew arrives for your scheduled appointment, you’ll take them on a tour of all the things you want removed. Once they’ve sized up the scope of the job, they’ll present you with an estimate. This will be based on volume as in the space your junk will occupy on the back of the truck. It’s going to be a very fair price that isn’t going to change. Once you accept the fee, it is locked down and the crew will spring into action. The best approach to garden planting and junk removal is to hire Junk King from the start.

Get Green For St. Patrick’s Day in Pittsburgh – Recycle Junk!

As it is every year, there will be plenty of talk about leprechauns and pots of gold this St. Patrick’s Day. Legend has it that if you follow a leprechaun back to their tree home, you could find their pot of gold. Of course, no one has been able to explain why a leprechaun needs all that gold in the first place. And just because we’re in Pittsburgh, doesn’t mean there aren’t any leprechauns around. Apparently, they are quite the travelers. The legend of the leprechaun is one of the many ways we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. They other popular tradition is to wear something green. These days, going green has taken on a whole need meaning. It means to recycle and there is no better recycling partner than Junk King.
