Get Ready for Your OC Garden Planting

It is tough taking care of garden planting in the OC. Not because the weather isn’t great. It’s because plots of dirt are at a premium. Many homes have concrete backyard that are perfect for skateboarding and basketball but not so great for gardening. If you really want to get a garden going and all you have is cement, there are options. There are many plant-growing systems that actually allow you to have fresh vegetables without any soil. Some of these are special planters. Other methods include straw bale planting with bales treated with fertilizer. Those can be set right on your driveway. If you’re interested in these alternative gardens, you might want to begin the process with a little clearing. That can happen with a call to Junk King.


Junk King is part of a national chain of professional junk haulers. They specialize in removing all kinds of household rubbish like old furniture, appliances, clothes and e-waste. However, the same crew who would be assigned to your junk hauling can also perform some backyard waste removal. Just like in your home, you could have created a lot of piles of stuff that you no longer want. This could be things like old auto parts, leftover construction waste, tires and lumber. There is no reason to hang onto any of that, right? Turn it all over to Junk King.

You might also make room for garden by taking away a swing set or playground area. Junk King crews have been called upon to take apart hot tubs, swimming pools and decks. Clearly, that can remove whatever you need to get rid of!

Everything that is collected by Junk King will go on the back of their truck. There is a good chance a lot of this material will be dropped off at a recycling center. The goal is to avoid dumping at local landfills. Junk King has made it a mission to get the OC as  close to “zero waste” as possible and they’ve maintained a healthy 60% diversion rate. That’s good news for our environment.

When you’re ready, you can set up your appointment online or by calling Junk King. Either way, you’re sure to have your task finished within 24 hours. Garden planting prep and junk hauling begin and end with a call to Junk King.
