Importance of a Fall Clean Up
With the summer coming to what seems to be an abrupt end, it's time to prepare your lawn for the fall months. You guessed it, leaves! We all would probably rather be doing other things like going to a football game or trying to keep up with your kids school activities or maybe getting that last beach day on a warm fall weekend but fall leaf removal plays an important part in keeping your yard healthy and keeping unwanted bugs and pests out of your yard and home. Here are a few tips on helping your lawn and landscape look the best it can for the following spring.
Bugs and Pests Love Wet Leaves!
Leaves left unattended during the fall months become a moisture haven for bugs creating a perfect habitat for colonies of unwanted pests that can enter your home and destroy your lawn in the fall and the following spring. By removing the leaves, you ensure that your lawn is healthy the following spring making it a much less desirable environment for those creepy crawlies! Also, a build up of leaves can brown out your lawn and increase the risk of snow mold which is a cold weather fungi primarily affecting cool season grasses that produces large, grey circles in your lawn that isn't noticeable until the following spring. Rodents and other small animals love piles of leaves that create shelter for them making them feel safe which can also lead them to the inside of your home.
