Autumn means visits to the local pumpkin patch, apple cider donuts, and pumpkin spice lattes (at least for us anyway). It also means it’s time to get your yard ready for winter. The right preparation now will help your lawn grow healthier when spring comes rolling around. Make sure you get the most out of your yard next spring by doing a fall yard cleanup. Below are the 5 reasons why you should do a fall cleanup.
Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Do a Fall Cleanup
Bugs love moisture. When it rains or there is dew on your property, wet leaves will attract bugs. If you keep those wet leaves on your lawn, moisture stays, and so do the insects. Get rid of those leaves and you will have less bugs on your property! Plus, it’ll look nicer!
Similar to the bug situation, rodents love clutter. They can hide in piles of leaves or collect twigs to make themselves feel at home. To keep your lawn as rodent free as possible, get rid of those leaves and twigs that make them want to stay. After all, they don’t pay rent!
Your Property Will Look Neat and Clean
There’s nothing better than walking out your front door and seeing a completely leaf and twig free lawn. You can enjoy your lawn all throughout the fall season. Best part, you didn’t have to do the work!
Eliminates the Spread of Lawn Diseases and Fungus
Because leaves hold moisture, they can produce mold, fungus, and other diseases. These diseases can spread throughout your property. If you allow that to happen, it may kill your other plants and even harm your lawn. By getting rid of the leaves, that fungus and mold won’t be able to take over any other part of your property.
Allows Your Lawn to Breathe and Stay Healthy
There’s nothing worse than putting a bunch of work into your lawn during the summer just for it to die over the course of the colder months. There are ways to keep your lawn healthy through all the seasons. One of the best things you can do for your lawn is not suffocate it. If you leave all those piles of leaves on your lawn, it won’t be able to breathe. We will remove all the leaves and debris from your lawn so it will stay nice and healthy throughout the fall.
