Should You Leave the Leaves?

Fallen leaves are one of the most quintessential images of the fall season. 

As trees shed off their leaves, it seems that nearly every inch of the ground is covered with vibrant and brilliant colors. Although it may look visually appealing, most homeowners and landscapers would recommend that you remove fallen leaves from your home in a timely manner.

In today’s blog, we’ll be discussing the significance of leaf removal, and the advantages behind doing so.

Why Is Leaf Removal Encouraged?

When fall rolls around, homeowners and landscapers are quick to break out their rakes and haul away the buildup of leaves – but why is this the case? Well, there are a number of reasons why leaf removal has become standard practice each and every fall.

For starters, removing leaves can reap a number of benefits for your lawn’s health. By removing the pile-up of leaves, your lawn can simply breathe better and grow more effectively. Grass needs natural sunlight to go through photosynthesis, and if leaves are in the way, the grass quickly becomes devoid of the nutrients that it needs to flourish. Without the burden of leaves, your lawn can reach its highest potential.

Additional Benefits of Leaf Removal

Do you want fungi, mold, or other diseases growing throughout your lawn? The chances are high you said no, and for that we can’t blame you, as these can be invasive and obnoxious to deal with. The buildup of leaves can give way to these harmful diseases, and insects, which have the power to wreak havoc on your lawn. 

Not only are these diseases harmful to your lawn, but they can even pose a threat to you and your family. Inhaling mold, for one, can be particularly dangerous for those with respiratory issues – causing dizziness, among other potential hazards. You can curb the threat of mold, fungi, and other issues by simply removing leaves that have accumulated on your lawn.
