Summer Gardening Tips

Get your gardening shoes on—now is a great time to freshen up your yard for summer. The plants are de-thawed from winter and beginning to shed spring leaves, so get out and tackle that dreaded yard work before the summer heat hits (if we’re lucky). Once the branches and piles of leaves have piled up, let Happy Hauler rid you of yard waste. Our efficient, eco-friendly disposal services will deal with the tail end of your hard work so you can focus on what needs to get done. We dispose of tree branches, leaves, blackberry bushes, gravel rock, grass, brush clippings, dirt, sod, and any other yard waste you may have. Leave the hauling to us so you can prune productively! Here are some gardening tips to freshen up the yard for summer:


With a rake gather fallen branches, leaves, and dead foliage. A simple clean sweep of the lawn and flowerbeds is instantly noticeable and will expose the areas that need special attention. Remove dead leaves from existing plants, trim stems, and remove excess vegetation. Leave yard waste in a pile for Happy Hauler to pick up!

Planning ahead

Now is a great time to get cleanup tasks done so you can pave the way for late-season planting. Once a seedbed is clear of excess plant droppings, mix in some compost or new soil to add maximum nutrients for the seeds. As summer fruits are reaching their peak, think autumn. It’s almost time to start planting fall vegetables like pumpkins, potatoes, peas, carrots and squash. Prevent pests early with repellant or protection such as chicken wire fencing.


Perhaps the least favorite chore of gardening is also the most important. Get down and dirty to prevent unmanageable weed growth by pulling them from the roots. You can prevent re-growth by sprinkling a 1-2 inch layer of compost or wood chips after weeding. Trim dead branches from bushes and trees, but don’t do any serious pruning until you’re certain about the type of plant and when to prune it.

It’s time to spruce up the garden for summer! Let Happy Hauler dispose of your yard waste quickly and efficiently.
