Leaves are starting to pile up in Delaware, and homeowners have to consider how they will go about removing them for the rest of the season. If you are not yet sold on the idea of leaf removal services, this week’s blog may change your mind. While a few stray leaves will not impact your lawn, letting autumn leaves sit on the ground in your yard can cause significant harm to your grass. Read on to learn why you should schedule leaf removal services with Paul’s Lawn Service this fall.
Give Your Grass Access to Light and Air
Did you know that simply covering grass is often enough to eradicate it? It is true — sometimes contractors or landscapers will cover grass with cardboard or newspaper to clear the way for paths, patios, or other projects. Fallen leaves can cause the same effect. When large amounts of leaves fall onto your lawn, they can block light and air from reaching your grass. Because grass needs sunlight and air to survive and thrive, removing excess leaves is essential. Do not ignore your leaf-covered lawn until it is too late. Utilize leaf removal services to ensure that your grass is getting the light and air it needs to survive.
Prevent Leaves From Going Moldy
Because leaves are organic materials themselves, they can often become moldy. While moldy leaves on sidewalks and driveways are merely unsightly, they can wreak havoc on your lawn. Molds that attack leaves can easily spread to your grass, creating a difficult hurdle for your lawn to overcome in the cold and wet autumn in Delaware. Prevent your grass from contracting mold by having leaves removed promptly by a professional.
Ensure a Healthy Lawn Come Spring
It is not enough to pamper your lawn during the warmer months and leave your grass to its own devices in fall and winter. While your lawn should come back in the spring, grass that was poorly-maintained in the fall will not be nearly as healthy and full as it could be. Fall is a vital period for root growth, and inadequate care during this time can result in a weak lawn that does not bounce back as well in the spring. While leaf removal services seem like a purely cosmetic service, they are essential to the continued health of your lawn.
