Why Do We Need a Clean Up?

As homeowners in Calgary, we take pride in our properties, but sometimes, our yards can become neglected, leading to an eyesore that affects not only our personal satisfaction but also the overall aesthetic of our community. According to a report by the City of Calgary, “Residents of Copperfield and Mahogany would like to see improved maintenance of landscaping and green spaces, and would like to address the issue of weeds taking over common areas.” This sentiment is echoed by many homeowners who feel that a clean and well-maintained community sets an important precedent for current and future residents.

  • The Environmental Impact

Beyond aesthetics, a clean yard has significant environmental benefits. For instance, a study by the City of Calgary found that “wasted water costs more money and can result in the shortening of your plants’ root systems (trees, shrubs, and grasses) making them less resilient to dry conditions.” This highlights the importance of efficient irrigation systems and regular maintenance to reduce water waste.

  • The Economic Benefits

A clean yard can also have economic benefits. According to the City of Calgary’s Climate Strategy – Pathways to 2050, “yard waste from landfill in 2021, which reduced methane emissions and produced bioenergy.” This initiative not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions but also generates renewable energy.

  • The Social Benefits

A clean yard can also have social benefits. It can increase property values, making our homes more attractive to potential buyers or renters. Moreover, a well-maintained yard can foster a sense of community pride, encouraging neighbors to take care of their properties and contributing to a more beautiful and welcoming neighborhood.

  • Conclusion

A clean-up of residential yards is essential for both personal and environmental reasons. It not only improves the aesthetic appeal of our properties but also has significant environmental and economic benefits. By taking care of our yards, we can reduce waste, conserve water, and contribute to a more sustainable future.
