There are a number of facets to cultivating and growing a healthy lawn. As the cooler temperatures of Autumn begin to be felt in the evening and overnight hours, there are some important steps that you need to take to maintain the care of your lawn so that it will survive the cold winter months and re-emerge healthy, thick, and full when spring comes. One of these important maintenance tasks is leaf removal. Leaf removal is a vital step to keeping your lawn healthy in the autumn, and also prepare it for winter.
A thick carpet of dead leaves left on your lawn can suffocate and kill your grass. It also reduces the evaporation of water, and can provide concealed shelter to dangerous pests. Fall leaf removal is important, and Davis Kee Outdoor can help. We have the professional crews and state of the art equipment to handle any size leaf removal projects.
Removing Leaves Keeps Grass Growing
Allowing a thick layer of leaves to accumulate across your lawn suffocates your grass by blocking its access to sunlight and air. When your grass is unable to receive proper sunlight and air, it is unable to grow. A lack of nutrients contributes to weaker grass that is less resilient and unable to fight off diseases and pests. Removing leaf clutter from your lawn ensures your grass can breathe properly and soak up the sunlight and air it needs for proper growth. Davis Kee Outdoor can remove leaves to help ensure your grass is able to grow optimally.
Leaves Capture Water & Hide Mold Growth
Your lawn needs to breathe and having access to air is pivotal for effective water evaporation. When leaves build up on your lawn, they prevent water evaporation and trap moisture underneath their layer. This moisture creates the perfect environment for fungi, diseases, and mold. Mold is harmful to your lawn and can also be harmful to your health. When you walk across the leaves on your lawn, it can disturb the mold, thus releasing mold spores into the air. Breathing in mold spores can cause respiratory and other health problems. To prevent mold growth on your lawn, vigilantly remove all leaves and keep your lawn well-maintained during the fall season. Davis Kee Outdoor can handle leaf removal professionally and efficiently so you don’t have to.
