How To Clean Up After A Major Landscaping Project

How To Clean Up After A Major Landscaping Project
  • Opening Intro -

    Every homeowner surely wants to have that beautiful lawn.

    Perhaps what may have just been once a dream for you is now a reality, as you've finally called in the landscapers to work on your home.


The prospect of having a new garden, as you’ve never seen before, is surely an exciting one. But, it’s also a lot of work from the start to the completion of the project.

Now that your landscaping project is finally finished, you have to take that last but all-important step to finally enjoy your beautiful garden. That’s the not-so-exciting task of cleaning up, which you must, but may not want to do.

Yet, there’s no way for you to be able to appreciate your newly-landscaped garden if it’s still looking like a big mess. Thankfully, there are certain tips and tricks that can help make the clean-up process easier. Here’s how:

Pressure Wash The Concrete Areas

After all that gardening, hauling of soil, and planting, your driveway, deck, or concrete pathways will surely be quite messy.

There’ll be soil all over and other debris from the landscaping project that was undertaken. You’ll have to clean those up for your lawn to look sightly and presentable.

Previously, the only way to go about with it was to manually brush or scrub the problem areas. This process isn’t just time-consuming, but it can also be a lot of manual work.

A solution to speed up this process while also having a more thorough clean is by pressure washing the concrete areas.

If you have a pressure washer already in your shed, then this first step is something you can do on your own.

For households that don’t have one, don’t fret as you can always call local, expert power washing services in Los Angeles, CA, or wherever you’re from, to do all the elbow dirt on your behalf.

Ring In A Skip Bin Service

Depending on how big your landscaping project was, you may be faced with a mountain of waste, trash, and debris after the landscaping project. Those shouldn’t be a problem to dispose of if you’re only talking about regular-sized and usual trash or debris.

However, if you have bigger ones that no longer fit in your own bins, it pays to call professional skip bin services to visit your home and collect the waste.

Take that workload off your to-do list by letting the experts take care of the trash and junk collection. This is especially important when you’re dealing with waste that you don’t know how best to dispose of.

Remember that not everything you consider post-gardening or post-landscaping waste should make it to the landfill as their last destination. If you call a skip bin service, they may be able to send some waste to the recycling plant, for instance, when this is an option.

Clean Up The Debris And Leaves

You can make the clean-up process easier and faster if you actually take it one day at a time. At the end of every working day, clean up whatever you can.

For example, you can pick up any debris and leaves that are left after each day. By doing so, you don’t wait until all of those pileups, making it a longer and more difficult process to clean up.

Raking is a simple but effective step. You can think of this also as good daily exercise while helping keep your garden clean.

Then, if your garden space permits it, you can also start a small compost pit with the collected debris. This way, you’re making the most of the garden debris by creating natural fertilizer, which you can also use to nourish the plants you have from landscaping.

Dust All The Exterior Surfaces

This task is something you should do that covers not just the lawn or the concrete walkway and fences, but also the exterior walls of your home. Landscaping can be a big and dirty project to the effect that even your exterior walls may get dirty as well.

Don’t forget to give attention to those areas by dusting the exterior surfaces. When you do this, you’re improving your home’s overall façade, not just the lawn.

This helps make your landscaping project more impactful when you can really see clearly how the landscaping has significantly improved your home’s appeal.
