When the temperature starts to drop, so do the leaves on the trees too. While the orange, red, and brown leaves make for a beautiful view in Autumn, when they start to fall, they can be quite the mess to keep up with maintaining a neat landscape. The windy cool days make it hard to keep the pile of leaves you spent hours raking up in one place, let us handle the hassle. Motivational Landscaping offers many services throughout the year from lawn mowing, to weed removal, to even season lawn care. This is the season of leaves and falling branches and we are here to help remove all that debris.

You might be wondering; do I really need to remove the fallen leaves from my landscaping? This is a great question that many people ask! The short answer is yes. It’s a good idea to remove large amounts of leaves from your property. Raking can be a good source of exercise, which is a nice reason to get outside and enjoy the season, but maybe you don’t have the time to dedicate to cleaning them up on your own. That’s where Motivational Landscaping can come in to relieve that duty from your plate. Here are a few reasons why you should do your lawn a favor and have the excess leaves removed:

  1. Piled-up leaves can deprive your lawn of sunlight, which is essential for the health and growth of your grass. Having areas that are covered and unable to access any UV rays may result in unhealthy spots or dormant grass.
  2. With temperatures dropping there is often excess moisture in your yard and the fallen leaves can result in trapped moisture in the lawn. This invites fungus, root rot, and other unpleasant conditions that can harm plants.
  3. Your property will look neat and well-kept. You won’t have to worry about leaves blowing into your property or getting stuck to your shoes!
  4. The fallen leaves in your lawn can be composted. Leaves can be shredded and used as soil or mulch. So rather than throwing them on the curb for the garbage company to collect, they could be used for good.

All properties are different and here at Motivational Landscaping we tailor every service to meet your property’s individual needs. We know in lawn care there is not a one size fits all plan. If over 30% of your yard is covered in leaves, then getting those removed will be the healthiest option to let your grass breathe and fully produce oxygen. We will get your property prepared to withstand the cold temperature seasons with leaves and snow, so when Spring comes back around your landscaping is still healthy and in tip-top shape!
