Plans are set to begin the excavation process of the landscaping project on your property and what remains is the hiring of waste containers. Depending on the amount of landscaping work you want to do, the bins will vary in size. Notably, the advantage of skip bins during the excavation stage is that they save time by ensuring that site is not clattered as you work on it. However, other than disposing excavation wastes from your landscaping project, there are other ingenious uses for skip bins that you can try out.
Store Excavation Tools -- If the project is significant and it is likely to last a couple of days, then you obviously need several excavation tools. It might become a problem if you do not have enough storage area for these devices. In such a case, an empty skip bin can act as a tools storage unit. Therefore, when looking to hire, make sure that you order for several garbage bins so that as the project proceeds you will always have at least one free container for your tools. Since the containers come with a lock mechanism, you can rest assured that your devices will be safe. However, while you can convert a free bin into a tool storage unit, you should never order a bin exclusively for this purpose; instead, get a toolbox and complement it with the bin in those rare cases.
Transport Excavation Tools Conveniently -- In large projects, it can be hectic transferring excavation hand tools to and from the site using a wheelbarrow or by hand. However, most skip bins have rollers which make them easy to move about a project area. As such, you can use a skip bin for ferrying tools efficiently. Notably, if you use a large bin as your storage unit, then you need to carry all the equipment to the site at once. For example, if you want to dig out several stumps or stubborn rocks on your front yard, you can bring all the required tools in the bin then work your way from the first stump to the last without necessarily going back and forth for the tools or bins.
Top Soil Storage – An excellent landscaping project is one whereby the topsoil is preserved adequately with its beneficial microorganisms as well as nutrients that are critical for plant health. Therefore, during landscaping, do not let the excavated topsoil lie out in the open since it might get washed away by rain or dried out in the sun. An extra bin that is not in use can be converted into a soil preservation chamber to maintain the soil's profile. Once the site is ready for planting, you will have your topsoil well preserved and ready to be laid back.
