Choosing a site for your bin in your garden
If you want to make your garden look, nice and beautiful you will have to keep it clean and tidy. Throwing away papers or other stuff here and there will not only make it untidy but will increase the entry of pests and insects as they are attracted towards filthy places more than the clean places. It is very necessary to place a dustbin in your garden.
Dustbin not only helps you to keep the filth and dirt away from your garden but it will make it easier for you to maintain your garden. So what is the right place or site for a dustbin in your garden? The right place for your dustbin in your garden is the place that is easily reachable from most corners and parts of your garden. Keeping a garden in the remote corner can be difficult reaching sometimes and small children or your guest may throw the papers and other crap nearby.
If you will keep the dustbin in easy reach then you can keep a control on the activity of your children and ask them to throw the dust away in the dustbin. Also, make sure that you do not place your dustbin in the middle of the garden because it decreases the looks of your garden and occupies vacant space. You must not keep it near the entry of your garden, as it also tends to make a bad impression. You can also choose to keep your bin a little far from the different plants, as it will be little hidden that way. Keeping the bin covered with a lid is must so that it does not become a breeding place for flies and mosquitoes.
