Fall is renowned for being one of the most picturesque seasons there is. It is home to lush scenes such as leaves swaying and falling to the ground, hay rides, and Halloween, amid other pleasantries of the season.
While fall may be one of the most beautiful seasons, it certainly doesn’t come without a price. If you are a homeowner, or maintain property, you know that fall is a very important time for clean-up, too.
In this blog, we will discuss ways to stay on top of your fall clean-up, helping your landscape shine through all the seasonal change. If that sounds interesting to you, keep reading for more information!
Dead Leaves? Time To Rake Them
Though we admit few things capture the essence of fall as well as dead leaves on the ground, you are encouraged to do away with them – once you’ve appreciated their aesthetic value of course.
Why? Well, leaves and other organic matter can attract the likes of pests such as termites, beetles, rodents, or even groundhogs. Removing dead leaves means curbing the threat of these pests in your landscape. Not only are pests annoying to deal with, but they can deliver significant damage to your lawn.
A Couple of Tips For Raking
Raking might seem like a demanding task, and we can’t disagree with this notion. Especially if you have a landscape that is larger than most, removing dead leaves and debris can eat up your time and energy. The tips below, however, aim to make your leaf removal go smoother.
- Tarp Is Your Best Friend
Rake all of your dead leaves onto a large tarp for an easy removal. This can make hauling your leaves to the curb or to a compost pile so much more convenient.
- Adopt a Raking Strategy
Having a plan is never necessarily a bad idea. In fact, it’s ideal to have a linear approach when raking your leaves, creating a sense of order and structure. For example, raking your leaves into defined rows is one way to maximize efficiency and make removal easier.
