Now that summer is heading our way we need to ask, “How is your garden growing?” The heat and humidity has settled in around Raleigh which means pests will start popping up in your garden. You need to keep an eye on them. Hopefully you can wash them off with a misting spray. If it gets serious you might consider clipping off some bit leaves and take them to your local nursery for advice. If you’re making transplants those new beds of soil have to be kept moist. You might want to add a rain barrel to your garden as a hedge against dry weeks. As your fruits and veggies start to come in make sure to harvest when the goodies are ripe.
Naturally, all of that above advice is based on the premise that you have a your garden up and running.

What’s the longest you’ve kept your garbage can out on the curb? Most Raleigh residents manage to bring the cans back in on the same day as the garbage pickup. However, there are some who have a problem with that. It’s such a problem that the City Council is getting involved to deal with complaints and they’re looking for a solution from the Solid Waste Services staff. Originally, residents were given until 7 p.m. the following day to bring the cans in. But that time frame was extended in 2006. Yet even with the extra time some residents are finding it hard to carry out this simple chore. The result is that a lot of folks are being issued a warning citation. Repeat offenders could find themselves being slapped with a fine if those cans are brought in. In the last year there have been over 1,500 warning letters issued to homeowners so clearly this is a problem.
Hopefully you’re handling your garbage in the proper way so as not to annoy your neighbors. But what about all the garbage you can’t easily throw out? We’re talking about the oversized items that can fit into those garbage cans. Those types of things can’t be put on the curb either. For the proper removal of that kind of stuff you’re only choice should be Junk King of Raleigh. These are the professional junk haulers who can handle any type of removal project.
Let’s talk dirt. There could be many reasons why you’ve got a pile of dirt in your yard. Maybe you needed to dig up some pipes or remove a tree whose roots are seeping into your home. Maybe you’re just rearranging your garden in anticipation of spring planting. Whatever the reason it’s going to be extremely difficult to load up your garbage can with piles of dirt. Where will the rest of your garbage go? With Junk King you’ll have a strong crew and truck at your command to help with the dirt removal.

While they’re removing the dirt, that same Junk King crew can remove other big items like a couch, stove, tire or play set. If you want to get rid of something then let Junk King do all the heavy lifting and disposal. When Junk King takes on the job they’ll be the ones getting dirty! You couldn’t ask for a better method of junk removal!
Did you have a good gardening season? This past summer was certainly proof positive that we’re living through some wacky weather but that doesn’t mean home gardeners didn’t manage to eke out a decent little harvest for themselves. As winter approaches, the temptation is to kind of let the gardens wither back into the ground and have Mother Nature take care of it all. However, most professional garden experts recommend that you clean up the spent garden debris to help diminish the occurrence of fungal disease. Worst case scenario would have those debris piles becoming a breeding ground for insects. Yes, there are bugs in the winter!
The suggestion is to deep plow that debris and get down to the roots. When roots are exposed to freezing temperatures there is a greater chance of reducing the emergence of plant pests. You could plant what is referred to as a “cover crop.” This would be something like rye grain, wheat or crimson clover. These plants will reduce erosion and provide nutrients for the soil. When these plants mature just plow them over about six weeks before you start the spring planting. We can all agree that it’s a lot of work to keep a garden growing and healthy but there are plenty of rewards to be had from all that work.
In terms of that hard work, you don’t have to do it alone. You can contract with Junk King of Raleigh to help with all the yard waste removal. While it is true that the bulk of what Junk King takes away is actually “junk” that doesn’t stop them from hauling off dirt, sod, fallen tree limbs, shrubs and leaves. In fact, there isn’t much that Junk King won’t haul away.
As a backyard gardener you might have the tendency to rake debris into piles. Nothing wrong with that. But when you hire Junk King Raleigh know that they can do all the work. In other words, if something has fallen in your yard, leave it where it fell and Junk King will take it from there!
Take note that all the work Junk King can do in your backyard doesn’t have to stop there. Why not take full advantage of their removal appointment by finally getting rid of some of the junk you’ve been hanging onto over the years? This will be all that useless stuff taking up valuable space in your garage, basement, attic and closet. Surely you could find plenty of other items that would make a perfect companion for your yard waste.
After Junk King has done their thing, you can focus on making sure the rest of your home and gardens are ready for the winter. Taking time to prepare now will set you up for a safe holiday and great growing season next year.
