Fall leaves are a beautiful sight to see, just not when they cover your entire yard.
A lawn with a thick layer of leaves is at risk for developing diseases, pest infestations, and weakened grass growth. Removing your leaves with a professional service will protect your lawn from these issues.
Understanding why leaf removal is important can help your grass stay healthy even after it goes into winter dormancy.
The health of your lawn is reliant on getting enough water, sunlight, and nutrients to maintain strong growth. A thick mat of leaves covering your yard can suffocate and block these necessary elements. This can quickly kill your lawn if the leaves are not picked up for several weeks and create a breeding ground for certain insects and pests.
As the leaves begin to rot, there is also an increased chance for fungus and mold growth. A lawn that is suffering from fungal disease will start developing yellow, white, or brown spots throughout your yard. The most common fall disease is dollar spot, which are small, silver dollar-sized spots that can merge and form large clumps of discolored grass.
One serious issue you may find if you don't perform some kind of leaf removal is an increase in voles and mice. These critters love to hide under layers of leaves so they can safely ravage your yard...
