Landscaping projects can transform your backyard and improve the overall curb appeal of your property. However, they can also generate a large amount of waste. Here are a few projects that may require a dumpster rental.

What Backyard Landscaping Projects Should You Rent a Dumpster for?

1. Building a Vertical Garden

When space is at a premium, many homeowners choose to build a vertical garden to house their plants. Building the structure that contains the garden is going to leave you with waste, such as wood pieces and excess chicken wire. Since the structure won’t be large, a 10- to 20-yard container is enough to haul away the extra construction supplies.

2. Hardscaping

DumpstersHardscaping features elevate the backyard’s appearance and bolster the overall property value. However, installing stone pathways, outdoor kitchens, or fire pits can leave you with extra stones, soil, and greenery. Having a 20- to 30-yard container to remove this waste facilitates the installation project and ensures a clean backyard.

3. Tree Trimming

Trees are nice additions to any backyard, but they can also be hazardous. When they grow too close to the home or become brittle, falling branches can cause personal harm and property damage, so it’s best to keep them trimmed back. If there’s just slight trimming being performed, have a 10-yard rental on-site to place the leaves and branches.

4. Storm Damage Cleanup

Rental containers make it much easier to clean up after a storm, because you have one convenient location to toss all of the waste. The size of the container will depend on the amount of debris.

If it’s just some small branches and leaves, a 10-yard container is large enough. If the damage is more severe and impacted structures in the backyard, like a shed or playground, you might need a bigger one to hold broken doors or damaged swings and slides.
