Fall Leaf Clean-up

            It’s getting to be that time of the year when all the leaves are starting to fall.  Even though big piles of leaves can provide entertainment for children, it may be necessary to clean them up.  If enough leaves fall on your yard that you have a hard time seeing the grass, then a leaf clean up is in order.  Leaves left on the grass can smother the turf and cause dead spots in your yard.  It is true that leaves can provide nutrients for the turf and can be used as mulch, but too many leaves can be harmful to the grass.

            There a couple different ways to go about cleaning leaves.  The old fashion way would be to simply rake them into piles and haul them away.  Some prefer to use their mower with a bagging attachment to bag up the leaves.  There are also blowers that can assist with leaf clean up.  Some blowers have a shredder vac system that can suck up the leaves.  This method can be time consuming on large areas, but can work well for detailed clean up in landscape beds.  The key is to find the method that works best for you.

            We use a combination of methods in our leaf clean up service.  We use blowers for the landscape beds.  Rakes and tarps are used to haul off the big piles.  Mostly we rely on our mowers to do the bulk of the work.  This has proven to be the most efficient method for us.  If you are tired of struggling with leaves, then let us do the work for you.  We can assist you no matter how big or small the job may be.  We can do one big clean after everything is down or we can do multiple clean ups throughout the fall.  Give us a call today to schedule your fall leaf clean up service!
