Sarasota Dirt Removal and Hauling

Have you noticed what’s happening at your local grocery store? That would be the rising food prices. Yes, everything is going up and not just gradually. It seems that every week things are becoming more and more expensive. Clipping coupons or driving to that store across town with the better bargains can help cut down on those grocery bills but there’s an even better method: grow your own. There are plenty of Sarasota residents who are not only turning their backyards into gardens for their own families but are also cashing in on the organic urban farming craze. It’s not a stretch to grow your own fruits and veggies and sell them for a profit.

Growing food to sell doesn’t always mean setting up a stall in a farmer’s market. You might find a local café or restaurant who would love to have fresh herbs or veggies delivered to them every day. Think about what you could grow in large amounts like jalapenos, spinach or peppers. These are also the items which are fetching hefty prices at the supermarkets. Thanks to the growing popularity of these urban farms you’ll find there are many workshops being offered around the Sarasota area to help you get started.

Once you settle on what you’re going to grow you’ll need to make room. This often means digging up some sod and replacing the dirt with nutrient rich soil. You want to give your new plants the best start by having topsoil that is fresh. If your current backyard dirt is chock full of rocks then you can smooth it all out by digging it up and bring in the new stuff. This will mean getting rid of piles of old dirt and that’s just when Junk King Sarasota can ride to the rescue.

Sarasota Patio Furniture Disposal

Aside from all the general discomfort, the Sarasota summer heat brings another unwanted guest: alligators. With the rising temperatures alligators are becoming more active which increasing the likelihood that they will start wandering out of their comfort zone. Just recently, a 12 foot gator was killed after crossing on to I-275 in St. Petersburg. Imagine the traffic snarl that caused! The best advice offered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is if you see an alligator, leave it alone and call it in. It is advised that you stay away from waterways. Yes, the temptation to take a dip to beat the heat will be great but you’re better off in your own backyard.

Maybe it’s not the gators keeping you out of your backyard but the way it looks. Maybe it’s time for a make-over. Once the sun goes down and the cool breeze picks up from the Gulf, it’s the perfect time to chill out on a patio or deck especially if you’ve been “trapped” indoors in the chilly AC all day. However, if you’re patio furniture is rusted or plain beat up it might be time for a new set. You already know that anything you keep outdoors is going to take a beating from the sun and rain but that doesn’t mean you can’t find great new patio furniture that can hold up to the elements. Wicker and wood might not be the best choices unless they’ll be kept on a covered porch. If you go with resin or metal you’ll be in good shape. Just don’t forget the added layer of comfort to be had from a cozy seat cushion.
