When it comes to spring cleaning, most of us think about the inside of the house. But outdoor spaces need cleaning, too, which can mean yard waste removal.
Backyards, front yards, side yards - and all the things in them - need to be cleaned out, spruced up, and prettified periodically. And, for most regions, early spring is a great time to make that happen.
Spring Cleaning Outdoors: What To Do and Where To Start?
Many homeowners and renters enjoy having a large outdoors space with broad lawns and plenty of room to play and relax. But the bigger the space, the bigger the cleanup! So, what should you be paying attention to?
One article suggests,
"Clean outside light fixtures and replace light bulbs with energy-efficient bulbs. Check hoses for cracks and leaks; store on a decorative hose holder to prevent damage while adding a nice accent to your outdoor space. Give a critical eye to retaining walls, driveways, sidewalks and outdoor furniture for damage."
Between the "softscape" and the "hardscape" elements of your landscape, there are likely to be any number of repairs and replacements to be done. And possibly room for improvements and upgrades.
So, what is the difference between hardscape and softscape?
As The Spruce explains it,
"Hardscape is the hard stuff in your yard: concrete, bricks, and stone. Softscape is the soft, growing stuff, like perennial flowers, shrubs, succulents, and trees. Softscape is living; hardscape is not."
Ultimately, these are the elements that make up your outdoor spaces - the things you plant, feed, and water, and the things you build, install, and repair.
The most obvious elements in your outdoor landscape are usually the lawn and any trees, shrubs, or flowers you have. Along with these there are the sidewalks, patios, and perhaps decks, water features, retaining walls, etc.
When it comes time for cleaning and sprucing up, the end result of your efforts will likely be piles of organic waste, dirt, rocks, and possibly old masonry and lumber. Oh, and don't forget all the empty bags and packaging waste from the new materials you purchase.
In addition, cleaning should be considered for these areas:
- Exterior walls
- Outdoor kitchen or patios
- Garden beds
- Outdoor structures
- And your lawn...
Yard Waste Removal Doesn't Need to be a DIY Project
