To many homeowners, leaves are a real menace. During the fall months, leaves can quickly pile up and removing them can seem like an impossible task. It is an essential chore because leaves can clog storm drains and suffocate grass and plant beds. Also, during the fall season, grass goes through a rejuvenation process, and it is important that leaves are not covering grass for extended periods. JFK Lawn & Landscape has fall cleanup and leaf removal services that will protect your property’s beauty! We service all of Howard County so give our experts a call today and let us do the dirty work for you!
The Importance of Leaf Removal
Did you know that leaves that cover more than 20% of your lawn can smother your grass during the winter months and then prevent grass growth the following spring? On top of that, an excess of leaves can also cause snow mold. In addition, JFK leaf removal services ensure that driveways and walkways remain clear to prevent slips and falls!
How Often Should Leaves Be Removed?
There are a few factors that should be taken into account when deciding how often you need to remove the fallen leaves from your property. The number and type of trees on your property (and your neighbors) will affect how often leaf removal needs to be done. If you have a large lot and no place to dispose of the leaves, you may need to do removal multiple times to keep up with the volume. Also, try to remove them before any heavy rains are forecasted.
Don’t forget about your gutters this fall! A clogged gutter can lead to overflow which can back up into your home or flood your basement. Cleaning gutters is a dangerous job because you usually need to climb a ladder! Don’t put yourself in harm’s way and let one of our experts at JFK clean your gutters this fall!
Have you ever considered creating a compost for your property? It will allow you to take advantage of those pesky leaves that litter your yard every year. It is nice having access to fresh organic soil supplements for all your gardening needs. You can also use it as a place to toss away any grass clippings or dead plant matter.
