Leaf Cleanup

Leaves that fall from the trees need to be cleaned up for a couple of reasons. The excessive amounts of leaves that fall can with snowfall prevent grass regrowth. Additionally, the leaf litter layer can help promote snow mold diseases which are not good for lawns. Finally, the leaves that are left on the ground provide shelter to voles and other rodents that can potentially damage lawns. Not only is cleaning up leaves good for your lawn it helps by keeping the stormwater drains clear. If the leaves are not cleaned up they can enter lakes and streams. Leaves add excess nutrients that can be harmful to the water.
