Yard Cleaning Hacks

Keep trash receptacles in discrete locations throughout your outdoor space.

If you have kids, you know how easy it is for them to just drop their food wrappers or other trash wherever they are. If you keep a trash receptacle in multiple locations it is easy to make sure that the trash gets put where it needs to go. Plus, many stores have super cute trash cans that blend in with your yard decor.

Set Habits for Everyone

Everytime the kids or the family is outside hanging out, make sure everyone does a sweep of the yard and make sure that they bring in any trash that they brought out. We are outdoorsy people anyway, so I always use the “leave no trace” saying to remind my kids to leave the yard as they found it. 

Have Plentiful Storage Space

Make sure to keep storage cabinets or chests on hand for toys, lawn tools, and any other items that are frequently outside in your yard. Having a place to put everything keeps them from being left in the middle of the yard.
