We’ve been lucky to have a little rain over the last few weeks in Brisbane which means things are starting to grow again! Rain means you might have noticed the gutters need cleaning and if you’ve been hit with some of the small storms we’ve already experienced then no doubt there are some tree branches down and a lot of leaf litter around. In a bush setting or rural block this is easily managed with a quick incineration or laying the garden waste as mulch or creating compost. Those of us who live in suburban homes in Brisbane know that green waste builds up quick and takes up space that can be put to better use.
And that is really one of the key things our green waste removal team deliver alongside ‘more time’ it’s ‘more space’ because a) no one really wants to spend their spring weekends heading to the tip to dump rubbish and b) no one really wants to give up a good piece of the back yard (or make the front yard seem unsightly) in order to store compost or piles of garden rubbish.
That’s why there comes a point when you’re happy to pay someone else to do these sort of tasks. Of course moving into an apartment is an option but some of us aren’t ready to give up the space and freedom that comes with home ownership or renting and having space and greenery between your home and the next. Outsourcing these services such as waste removal frees up your time so you can enjoy a low maintenance lifestyle and spend more time with loved ones. It’s one of the bonus’ of living in Brisbane and enjoying the great outdoors and modern suburban or inner city lifestyle.
Garden rubbish collection is a hot enquiry item right now and our team are working hard as per usual. It looks like Spring (or is it summer?) has come earlier than expected and i’s not looking to be a great combination of heat, wind and drought conditions. This means September a good time to be clearing all garden debris. Not only is this good for garden maintenance to make room for new growth when the rains come, it’s good for storm season and also to reduce your fire risk.
If you’re in Brisbane there are sure to be a few branches down with the recent windy weather. It can be hard to find time on the weekend (especially if you have family commitments) but we can halve the job by doing the garden rubbish dump run for you. So, when you’re finished with all the trimming give our team a call and we’ll finish the cleanup and remove all the garden rubbish with no drama.
It’s storm season once again, which means a torrential downpour every afternoon and news stories about it every night. The reporters will be standing outside under umbrellas to show how useful they can be (the umbrellas, not the reporters), and cutting to footage of golf ball-size hailstones falling elsewhere in the state.
(Just be thankful Mother Nature isn’t a soccer fan.)
Unfortunately, the mornings are still bright and sunny. And you know what happens when you combine sun and rain, don’t you? That’s right: a weather report that goes for half the news bulletin.
It’s also Mother Nature’s sure-fire growth formula for plants, which means you’ll have to trek through metre-high grass to find the morning paper. (Assuming they managed to lob it over your hedge, which now resembles the maze from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.)
It’s time to get gardening and sort out your green waste collection in Brisbane before you get started. Why? Well, Winter is over, and we finally get to say goodbye to Jack Frost. Unfortunately, a lot people will now be saying hello to a new arch nemesis—Harry Hay Fever. (Forget about skipping through fields of flowers. These people will be sprinting to the nearest chemist to to buy a truckload of Claratyne.)
Yes, spring is here at last. And if you stop for a minute and take a look around you’ll immediately be trampled by hay fever sufferers.
But once the stampede has passed, take another look and you’ll see the trees and gardens bursting with colour. It’s as if they’ve all had a month’s worth of growth overnight. Unless they happen to be your trees and gardens, in which case it will be more like three months’ worth. Continue reading
