Since the COVD-19 outbreak, we are forced to live within our houses and enjoy doing things that do not necessitate going outside and interacting with people, and this is where doing house projects and house maintenance become relevant and fun for us.  

There are different aspects when it comes to doing house projects and maintenance, and these include taking care of your backyard (the only outdoor space you can probably enjoy in these times). In this article, we will be sharing with you one of the ways to keep your backyard organized and clean: throwing irrelevant materials and stuff. 

The Dumpster Rental Sterling Heights can help you with the dumps; the rest of the planning and doing are in your hands.  

5 Things from Your Backyard to Throw Away This Weekend 

1.Old paint 

Many homeowners prefer to save and store some paint for future painting projects. However, it is recommended to toss away these old paints to clear some space and organize your backyard. Clear away all deck coatings, interior and exterior paints, primers, repellents, sealers, etc. 


It is not recommended to throw away paints in your garbage can as they contain chemicals that are hazardous to the environment. Check out Paint Care Org to find locations where you can donate your old paints.  

2.Old or broken gardening tools 

There are homeowners who like to keep old gardening tools for sentimental value. However, experts would recommend that tossing away old equipment do not just clear some space, but also improve the curb appeal.  


If you have some metal material, it is recommended that you put them in a recycling bin.  

3.Broken ornaments and statues 

There is a certain aura and ambiance that old statues and ornaments provide in your backyard. However, if they are overly broken with a missing head, and provides a messier look, it is better to get rid of them completely.  


If the statues and ornaments are severely broken, toss them in the bin by pieces. However, if they are still in decent shape, you can clean them and find a place to donate.  

4.Containers and Golden Pots 

It is understandable to have an urge to consistently repair your flower pots and garden containers. However, it is probably the right time for you to replace them with new ones and completely discard them especially when you already have used them for several years.  

5.Dying grass 

There is nothing worse than having a yellowish grass on your backyard as it destroys the overall curb appeal of the property. If you notice that your grass, whether synthetic or real, has faded away, it is now a perfect time for a replacement. 


If you want to avoid frequent and regular maintenance, you can opt for artificial turf on your backyard. 

Final Thoughts 

There are many things you can get rid of in order to make your backyard organized and clean, so long as you think it is old, unusable, and not-that-important, it is better to toss them away properly or donate them to those who are in need.
