With all its beautiful colours, fall is a beautiful season. One of the most attractive aspect of fall, for many people, is the fall leaves in shades of orange, red, yellow, and brown. As beautiful as they are, letting fallen leaves buildup on your lawn and garden poses health risks to your lawn, and your family.
A layer of leaves kills your grass by reducing the grass’ access to sunlight. The thick layers of rotting leaves also create the perfect environment for mold and pests that can cause harm to your pets and family. A leaf removal service can also save you and your family from injury. Wet leaves are the perfect material for falls, which can be severe for the elderly.
All plants need photo synthesis to grow. Photosynthesis is the process in which plants use sunlight to create nutrients from water and carbon dioxide. To survive, plants need to see the sun so that they can make their own food; this applies even in the fall and winter. Leaf removal services remove all leaves from your outdoor space, which ensures that your lawn will have the sunlight it needs to stay healthy year-round.
Wet, decaying leaves not only block out the sun, but they trap the water. This damp environment is perfect for mold, fungi, and pests to thrive. Mold can damage your lawn, and garden. It can also be dangerous for humans and animals. Walking through layers of the fallen leaves can kick up mold and release spores, which are then breathed in. Breathing issues, dizziness, and other severe health concerns can all be caused by breathing in mold and spores that lie under the layers of leaves. The best way to prevent mold and other unwanted growths in your yard is to hire a leaf removal service.
Depending on where you live, dead leaves can also hide dangerous pests such as snakes and spiders. Fallen leaves offer a thick layer of shelter and warmth. If leaves are left on the yard for a while, the chances of disturbing the home of a dangerous pest grow.
It is healthier for your lawn and less of a risk for you and your family to regularly remove leaves as they fall. Therefore, having a leaf removal service is preferable for some people. Whether it is due to lack of time, mobility issues, a dislike of yard work, or other reasons, using a leaf removal service is an efficient way to ensure that your lawn stays healthy, and your yard stays safe.
Leaf removal services can also be included with other landscaping services such as lawn mowing, edging, aeration, and other services that your lawn or garden might need.
Some people love to garden, some like to do yard work, some like to do both, and some like to do neither. Whatever you prefer, there are landscaping services that fit your lifestyle schedule and suit your needs.
