Springtime is just around the corner, but there are still plenty of fallen leaves for Delawareans to deal with on their lawns and walkways. Although some fallen leaves can break down and create useful nutrients for your yard (or provide a satisfying “crunch” underfoot), too many dead leaves on your lawn can create a health hazard for your grass. You could remove the leaves yourself, but that can take time. Professional leaf removal is an excellent option for Delaware homeowners who want to do what’s best for their lawns — without having to sacrifice their entire Saturday to do it.
Prevent Lawn Thatch Buildup
One of the reasons that a deep layer of leaves is a problem for grass is that it can create an excess amount of thatch, which blocks oxygen and vital nutrients from reaching your grass. Thatch is a thick layer of organic material that is comprised of dead leaves, roots, and grass parts. Fallen leaves block sunlight and cause other issues that can kill grass, leading to grass death and excessive thatch formation. The leaves themselves can also contribute to this layer of thatch. Because of this, leaf removal is essential to the health of your lawn.
Remove Hiding Places for Pests and Mold
Another way that leaves can harm your lawn is by creating the perfect environment for pests and mold. Dead leaves become wet with rain and dew, and they can quickly become covered in mold. This fungus can attack vulnerable grass, harming or killing it. When your lawn is attacked by the fungus lurking on fallen leaves, it can even contribute to a poor growing season for your grass in the spring and summer. Also, leaves can create an excellent hiding spot for pests, both large and small.
Save Time and Get Professional Results
Cleaning up the leaves in your yard can take time and effort. If you have ever wrestled with a rake and lawn waste bag, you know this. Hiring the neighborhood kids to rake your yard is one way to stimulate the local economy, but the results will likely be less than professional. Besides, it is highly unlikely that your neighbor’s kid is properly trained, experienced, and insured. Consider enlisting the help of Paul’s Lawn Service for professional leaf removal. Our crews work tirelessly to make sure that your yard is free of leaves, and we offer a variety of maintenance services to help ensure that your lawn and trees are healthy, happy, and beautiful.
