Landscaping professionals suggest that you clean up leaves in your yard in the fall, rather than waiting until spring arrives. Prescott Maid to Order can help clean up the falling leaves on your Prescott home’s landscape.
Here are some suggested time intervals for cleaning:
- Once at the end of October
- Once somewhere near Thanksgiving Day
- Once at the beginning of the New Year
Leaf cleaning and removal at the above intervals should keep your lawn from getting overrun. Experts say it is important to not allow leaves collect on the ground for too long.
Excess leaves on the lawn block sunlight. This reduces water evaporation and can cause a host of problems including fungus, mold and disease. These things alone can destroy a lawn within a couple of years, even if it’s cleaned up every spring.
A well maintained, healthy lawn can take a hit and bounce back, but a stressed lawn left with leaves sitting for long periods of time can be sent over the edge. Allowing leaves to sit can result in areas where leaves retain moisture. Wet, decomposing leaves can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Also some plant diseases can get cycled back into plants as the leaves decompose into the soil at the base of the plant.
