In the height of summer, there’s nothing we brits love more than a good clearout. The sun might be blazing (as much as it does) and we’ll be in the mood to get stuff sorted. In this case, the garden.
August Garden Clearances
With the summer holidays well and truly upon us, and those with kids having time off to spend with them, what better time to get that garden under control?
The kids love being outdoors when the sun is shining, and giving them a way to help out is even better! So let’s grab them a pair of gardening gloves and get them working!
Getting The Kids To Help
Once the kids have their gloves on, there’s nothing stopping them from helping you rid the garden of all the excess waste. Of course, depending on the size of the kids will depend on how much help they can be, or where they can help.
For small children, we recommend that they aren’t too close to the skip itself as the metal body of our skips is the quickest way to a bruise or two. While bigger kids are a great way to get the skip loaded in a hurry!
Loading The Skip
When it comes to garden waste, we get a mixture of everything you can find in the garden. From giant tree roots to grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, old pots, broken-up fences, sheds and greenhouses. So when it comes to clearing your garden waste, consider the waste that you will be removing before throwing it all into the skip.
You might be tempted to put waste into the skip as you find it, however, by loading the skip in a specific order, you can increase the waste that you can fit, and make the most of your skip.
Loading softer cuttings and trimmings at the bottom of your skip allows for them to be compacted as more waste is loaded on top.
Bulkier items, such as your tree roots and panels will ideally be loaded on next as this allows for other waste to be entered into the skip around them to maximise the space.
When it comes to working in the garden during the height of summer it’s not just the children who need to take time out of the sun. As you’re already in the garden, why not consider a padding pool? Keeping it in the shade helps the kids, and the adults take those all-important breaks while cooling off.
If the pools not for you, make sure to take regular shaded breaks with plenty of fluids.
