Redeveloping Your Landscape? Here's How to Keep Things Clean, Safe, and Organized

Gregory Walker

If you're planning to redevelop your landscape design, it's important to consider safety and organization. Here are three things you can do to keep your project site clean, safe, and organized overall:

Rent a Dumpster

The best way to keep your property clean and free of unneeded debris is to have a rental dumpster dropped off in front of your home to sit there throughout the duration of your landscape project. With easy access to a rental dumpster, you can throw large bushes and tree branches away, get rid of nails and other dangerous accessories that aren't usable any longer, and ensure that glass is picked up off the ground before it gets broken and someone gets hurt. You should find that cleanup during work hours is more manageable and cleanup at the end of each day is less time-consuming.

Set Up a Lockable Shed

If you don't already have a lockable shed on your property that you can dedicate for use throughout your landscape project, consider setting one up. This will allow you to keep all your important tools and accessories safe in one place where you can always find them, and you don't have to worry about others running off with anything.

Install shelves inside the shed so you can store labeled tubs of nails and other small items, and leave the floor of the space open so you can conveniently get the larger stuff inside and out. You should treat all the seams of the storage unit with weather protectant spray paint to ensure that no moisture builds up inside and ruins your tools.

Focus on One Project at a Time

It can be tempting to start a new landscape project before finishing the one you already started if you need a change of pace or you want to see more of a progression take place visually, but focusing on more than one project at a time can result in poor quality and disorganization. So, take the time to complete one project before starting another to ensure that you stay on track and remain true to your original landscape design plans. If you feel the need for a break of change of direction, spend some time reviewing plans for future projects to see if any small tweaks can be made – then get back to the task at hand!

Make use of all these tips and tricks to optimize your experience while revamping your landscape design.

Hi, I'm Caroline. Welding has always been really fascinating to me. One day, when I was at work in my office, we had a leaky pipe in the ceiling. After calling a plumber, he called a welder who came to repair the large, open pipe. As we were all sitting there trying to work, the welder just came in and started repairing the pipe! I had never worked on a construction site before, and I probably never will. But I started thinking about what it would actually be like to work on a construction site, which led to me exploring construction themes and writing this blog!
