Importance of Leaf Removal as Fall Approaches

Leaf removal is one of the most important parts of yard work for keeping your outdoor landscape healthy.

Your lawn needs plenty of love and care in order to stay healthy. With fall right around the corner, you need to keep up with proper lawn care so that your yard can handle all of the impending cold weather. One of the biggest chores of fall yard cleanup is dealing with the leaves that begin to cover your property. Leaf removal is one of the most important parts of yard work for keeping your outdoor landscape healthy.

Leaf Removal Lets Your Grass Grow

When leaves start to litter your yard, they deny grass the ability to absorb all of the sunlight and air necessary to thrive. This stops the grass from growing. Lack of sunlight and air also makes grass more susceptible to various pests and diseases. Leaf removal allows grass to absorb the nutrients it needs so that it can stay healthy and grow.

Leaves Limit Water Vaporization & Promote the Growth of Mold

Your lawn needs to have the opportunity to breathe. Without breathing room, water won’t be able to evaporate, meaning it gets trapped into your lawn. This excess moisture results in your lawn facing more diseases, mold, and fungi, which don’t just harm your lawn, but yourself as well. Leaf removal allows your lawn to breathe and keep too much moisture from piling up.

Leaves Can Provide Shelter for Dangerous Pests

Your yard can become the living space for many dangerous pests if you aren’t careful. It gives pests the perfect place to hide and shelter themselves. You don’t want to be put at risk by having these creatures inhabiting your yard.

If you get leaf removal done, there will be fewer places for these pests to hide, and they will be less likely to make a home out of your yard. This is especially important for families with pets and young children since they may not be looking for these dangerous intruders as vigilantly.

Leaf Removal Keeps Your Yard Looking Clean and Presentable

Lastly, leaf removal gives your yard a clean and refined look. This is especially important if you’re trying to sell your house one day. If leaves are cluttering your outdoor living space, potential homebuyers won’t be able to see all of the beautiful aspects of your lawn. A messy yard also suggests to people that you will have a messy home interior as well. Make a good first impression and take care of leaf removal.
