Be-leaf it or Not!
Leaves and the damage they can cause.
The changing of colors and falling of leaves is a beautiful scene. Each year we are fortunate enough to witness the marvelous changing seasons. The temperatures start to drop, the colors begin to change, and the leaves trickle to the ground. What you might not know, however, is the damage that these beautiful falling leaves can cause to your lawn. Whether you have a small residential lawn or a larger commercial property, it is important that you stay on top of the removal of leaves. Because, although the leaves might add a seasonal touch, they could create major problems for your lawn come spring.
Be-leaf it or Not!
Why is this such a big deal? Can’t I just let the leaves stay there over the winter? Well, you might be surprised to hear that unattended fall leaves can damage and even kill your lawn. There is a lot that is going on beneath that layer of leaves and your grass could really use your help!
What’s Really Going on Under Those Leaves?
- Less water evaporation
- Less sunlight
- Limited air circulation
- Increased risk of mold, fungus, and other disease growth
What Can I Do About it?
There are a number of different options for you to choose from when it comes to your leaf problem. Gathering the leaves and disposing of them is the most viable option. Different cities have different regulations when it comes to leaf collection, but you can typically dispose of your leaves with your normal trash pickup service. To find out more about this service in the Indianapolis area, visit this website. While it is important for you to dispose of the leaves properly, it can also be effective to simply chop them up with your mower. This option, however, could potentially leave you with a mess and some irritated neighbors.
