Small Haul KC Plays a Role in Beautifying the City
Spring is one of the busiest seasons for landscape contractors. As the weather warms up, homeowners start migrating outdoors. That’s when it happens. Lawn and landscape improvement ideas start flowing faster than fresh lemonade. Landscape designers and contractors know that one of the keys to their success during this busy season is having all the right tools for the job. There’s nothing worse than having to stop for the day because a critical item was forgotten back at the shop.
While many don’t think of roll-off dumpsters as tools, here at Small Haul KC, we believe renting a dumpster is just as critical to landscape project success as having the right shovel or freshly-sharpened pruners. That’s why we offer commercial dumpster rental services for landscape contractors in the Kansas City area. Renting a dumpster from Small Haul is quick and easy. Using our online calendar, contractors can schedule the roll-off dumpster rental for each project as it’s added to the calendar. When landscapers show up at the client’s house, the dumpster is there, too.
Why use a commercial dumpster for a landscaping project?
Many commercial contractors believe that roll-off dumpsters are a no-brainer when it comes to clean-up for any construction project. When talking about construction debris like roofing shingles, broken ceramic tiles, and old drywall, that’s easy to understand. But sometimes, people forget that landscaping projects also create refuse that needs to be hauled away. A roll-off dumpster rental is perfect for yard waste. Yes, the yard waste does have to have its own container; it can’t be mixed in with other hard-surface trash. But since Small Haul’s dumpsters are available in various sizes, it’s no problem to get one that’s the right size for the job.
As with many home improvement projects, landscaping projects create refuse that needs to be removed from the project site. Just think about what it takes to create new flower beds or walkways, put in a fire pit, or add a flagstone terrace to someone’s home. Dirt, grass, weeds, and rocks can all go into the dumpster to be hauled away at the end of the project. Not only is this efficient for site managers, but it keeps the project site cleaner and safer, too.
This leads to another good reason for renting a dumpster for landscaping projects: homeowner satisfaction. Many contractors and others in the construction industry are great at what they do. They can put on a roof, install an HVAC system, or replace windows in no time, doing high-quality work. However, not all contractors are good at keeping the place clean as they go or cleaning up after themselves when the job is finished. Landscaping contractors who figure commercial dumpster rental into the scope of the project will have homeowners singing their praises to all their neighbors. And that could easily result in more business.
Trending Landscape Projects for Spring
All that being said, here are a few of the most popular spring landscaping projects in Kansas City.
Water features. There’s nothing more soothing than the sound of water trickling over rocks into a pool. Many homeowners will be looking for such relief after spending long winter months in the house. This winter has been especially tough, with the COVID-19 pandemic still lingering and people cooped up inside with nowhere to go. Landscape contractors will be installing koi ponds and waterfalls this spring so that homeowners can rejuvenate in the comfort of their own backyard.
More landscape beds. It’s surprising what a big difference it makes when beds full of bushes and trees are added along driveways and sidewalks. Suddenly, a ho-hum feature becomes an eye-opener. A well-landscaped driveway is welcoming as well as aesthetically pleasing and takes the whole property up another level. Enhanced curb appeal is a bonus; stunning landscape beds may even increase the resale price.
Pollinator gardens. It’s no secret that pollinators are having a harder time finding food than they used to. Butterflies, hummingbirds, and especially bumblebees are losing their natural habitats to residential developers focused more on making their customers happy than on maintaining the right mix of flowers to keep pollinators happy. This, of course, is as it should be. But many homeowners are now starting to realize the benefits of putting in a pollinator garden. The flowers used in this type of bed are full of color. Many of them smell good. And besides feeding pollinators, they help control other unwanted insects that may damage other plants or vegetable gardens.
Create a statement. Landscaping can be used to create a statement, especially when strategically-placed landscape lighting is used. Many homeowners love the thrill of pulling up to their home and feeling as if they’re entering an oasis. They should feel that way. It’s their home. Create a statement with urns, vases, flowerpots, arbors, ornamental trees, flowering bushes…the sky’s the limit when designing a focal point using landscape elements.
