If leaves are left to sit too long, generally more than 7-10 days, they will begin to adversely affect the health of your grass. If the layer of leaves is allowed to get too thick, creating a blanket of sorts, it can block access to vital nutrients like air, water, and light. At J&C Lawn Care, we recommend that you have leaves removed at least twice during the fall season.
As leaves accumulate, absorb moisture, and begin to decompose, mold and fungus start to form. This can also lead to fungal diseases attacking your grass. Wet leaves can also serve as a haven and breeding ground for nuisance pests such as spiders, snakes, mosquitoes, and more. When dangerous pests are left to hide in your yard, that can pose a hazard to your friends, family, children, and pets.
Typically, we schedule your first removal when about a third of the leaves have fallen and then come back out after most leaves have fallen. Doing this helps to ensure that your grass can absorb as many nutrients as possible before winter weather strikes. Your grass needs time during the fall and winter to process those nutrients and reach maximum levels of photosynthesis so it can be prepared for spring.
A healthy lawn can die within 1-2 years if a blanket of leaves is left to sit on it.
For larger properties, we use leaf blowers and blow leaves into piles. After that, we use tarps and bins to manually take them away from your property. For smaller properties, we may use rakes in the removal process. One of your leaf removals may be included in a fall yard cleanup where we will also remove yard debris such as branches and twigs that may have accumulated during the summer season.
