Trash, Junk, and Litter are Spoiling it for Others: What Can be Done?May 1, 2023
Tips for the Disposal of Appliances in an Eco-Friendly WayMay 10, 2023
As the days get warmer, so are we motivated to get back into our gardens and prepare for summer. The thought of blossoms and green foliage popping out everywhere is enough to spur us into action. Also, the sound of birds returning to their habitats makes us want to join them outdoors soaking up the warm rays of the sun.
Winter is a period of dormancy in our gardens, sometimes a bit depressing, but that is the cycle we are used to. Before we get started with our plans to spruce the garden up, let’s think about the rest of the inhabitants of the garden and how your actions will affect them.
We are talking about insects, birds, and anything else that finds your garden home. Clearly, they co-habit with you, and by taking into account where and how they live, you may avoid destroying their life patterns when you do the garden cleanout.
So, before you commence your spring clean, leave the chainsaws, hold on to the spades, leave the gloves in the cupboard, or call your nearby junk removal waste management company, read this first.
We at Junk Removal Wirral like to think that the rubbish removal that we do from a garden cleanout does not take away anything that should be left at home that could benefit nature.
Your Garden Ecosystem
Everything in the garden is interconnected in the form of a food web. All the organisms live together in an organized ecosystem that is driven by energy. In cold winter months, the energy that is derived from the sun is minimal, so either they rest up in a dormant phase or they convert themselves to pupae that later hatch when the weather is warmer.
With all this going on in the garden, the cycle of life comes alive when the weather gets warmer. Energized by the sun, they all start to reproduce, grow, excrete, and look for food. The food web is a chain of food sources for the entire ecosystem to survive. At the bottom of the food chain are plants, like the ones that are going to be removed in garden cleanup.
Now that we have you thinking, perhaps before any trimming or digging takes place, here is some more information you should know before you commence the garden cleanout and do a rubbish removal that you will regret later.
Garden Cleanup: What to Consider
Firstly, let the garden come to life. This will only happen when the temperatures have risen to 12C or more and the summer weather is on its way. Starting with larvae and eggs laid by insects, which have been dormant in winter, there will be an emergence of butterflies and insects, bees, and flies. As new life comes to the garden so will the hungry predators, like birds arrive on the scene looking for food.
Take time to notice this transformation, and suddenly you will realize that you are sharing your garden with a new family that you may have been ignoring. All the areas of the garden can be ecological homes for a variety of natural organisms, insects, and animals.
So, even though you want to get started and trim back furiously, take time to understand that your garden is something you share with others and that it’s worth taking note of who they are.
Getting the Garden Cleanup Done
So, with this in mind, what areas of the garden are safe and how should the garden cleanup be approached? So, the idea is to be careful of creating too much disturbance in the garden. It means that pinpointing certain key areas and focusing on them for a start is a good way to go.
Do the most visible garden beds, the ones where you want the first summer flowers, and clear them of dead branches, excess leaves, and twigs. Remember that these materials are going to be put to good use, so collect them in stacks. Insects trapped in them may come out and escape before you send this all for composting and they start decomposition.
Let Nature Help in the Garden
What goes on in the soil by nature is astounding, and everything is designed to make your landscaping efforts more successful.
For example, the organisms in soil are the ones that get your organic matter decomposed in a way that is helpful. Also, soil organisms can sequester nitrogen which is a great nutrient for plants. Because they live in the soil and on the roots of plants, soil organisms are continually hard at work making nutrients for plants and food for other organisms.
Everything happens in harmony in a garden, with all the role players having a place in the food chain. It is like the garden is alive with activity all the time. And all of this helps make your garden healthier and even better than if you just do it yourself.
So, with a little help from your friends in the garden, you’ll have a healthy garden and become a very good gardener. This starts with the soil where the organisms in it are all hard at work on your behalf.
When cleaning up your garden a lot of the reason to do so is to clear the previous year’s growth and to neaten it up. It’s recommended that you keep your soil tillage as little as possible, as the soil equilibrium shouldn’t be disturbed. It is not wise to disconnect the existing ecosystem in the ground, as this will mean your friends have to start all over, doing good for you.
