How to Get Rid of Yard Clutter: 3 Tips

For some homeowners, memories of their backyard as a prime space for entertaining guests and relaxing is just that – a distant memory.

There’s no use having an amazing backyard you cannot enjoy because it’s piled with stuff – some broken and some you may actually use – crowding the space. Getting rid of yard clutter is the best way to take back the enjoyment you once had with your yard.

Here are 3 tips to get rid of lawn clutter right now.

Big Clean Up

Rent a dumpster and go through what’s broken, what hasn’t been used in a long time and what you can toss, sell or donate. Once you’ve eliminated mess and unnecessary items, you’ll have space to start cleaning and seeing your grass again. Imagine that – a backyard that can actually be used for enjoyment. Maybe even a barbecue before the cold weather comes around.

Mow & Trim

If you don’t want to hire a professional to spruce up the space, roll up your sleeves and pick up leaves and sticks, clip the grass and cut back or remove any dead and overgrown plants and weeds. Consider a fresh coat of paint on fences that look tattered or power washing patio and furniture to give it new life.

Get a Portable Storage Shelter

Keeping your valuable items and extras in a safe place in your yard is the best way to stay neat and organized. The great thing about portable storage shelters is that you can pick the location, and it doesn’t have to stay there. If you need seasonal storage you can take it down at the end of the season, and if you want to change the usages from storing lawn equipment to a place to have an outdoor party, you can do that too with a portable shelter.

Shelters of America offers instant storage buildings with galvanized steel frames to ensure you get true all-weather protection from damage caused by sun, wind, rain, ice and snow. See a full list of our products.
