There are many things you can do with your old yard debris. Whether it’s installing new outdoor furniture or hosting a yard sale to get rid of old clothes and other items, the possibilities are endless! Keep reading for some great ideas on how to turn your old leaves into mulch and what to do when weeds grow in your lawn.
1. Have a yard sale to get rid of old furniture, BBQs, etc.
If you are tired of all the clutter in your yard, try hosting a yard sale to get rid of old items that you no longer need. You never know what people will buy, so don’t be afraid to start with just one or two things! Remember that if someone is interested in an item but does not have enough money, you can negotiate with them to make the sale go smooth.
2. Compost your leaves by turning them into mulch
Composting your leaves is a great way to get rid of old lawn debris. This process can take up to three months, but once it’s done, you will have nutrient-rich mulch that can be used for gardening and planting. To create a compost pile, you will need to mix yard debris like leaves, grass clippings, and plant cuttings from your garden in a pile. Once everything is in a pile, add soil to the mix (50/50 ratio), then you can protect your pile with a cover so animals cannot get into it. Finally, let the pile sit for three months before using it!
3. Clear out any weeds or clutter from the yard
Leaves and yard debris are great for composting, but it’s important to make sure your other yard items are clear out of the way. Remove weeds or any unwanted plants from around your property, so they do not spread their invasive seeds into a new location. Clear away anything cluttered in the front or back yards like toys, lawn clippings, trash, or other unsightly things.
4. Get some outdoor furniture for relaxing outside on hot summer days
With the warm weather, it’s important to have a comfortable spot outside. Add chairs, loungers, or even a hammock in your front yard so you can enjoy spending time outdoors during those hot summer days!
5. Plant flowers around the front porch of your home
When you have flowers and plants in pots, you can enjoy their beauty all year round. Try planting some flowers around your front porch so the color and fragrance of them will be seen as soon as visitors step into your yard!
