The swelter of summer is almost behind us. Pumpkin spice and sweater weather will soon arrive, bringing with them the colorful nuisance of falling leaves. If you’re ready for a break from the heat but not looking forward to finding a place to get rid of your raked and bagged leaves, relax and enjoy the season. There’s an easy solution to the leaf pickup dilemma at your fingertips.
Why Leaf Pickup and Removal Matters
You may be tempted to let the leaves lie where they fall, creating a colorful blanket you don’t have to manage. Do this, though, and you run the risk of destroying your lawn and missing the sight of green grass come spring.
Winter weather brings moisture, which can cause fungal growth and other issues beneath the fallen leaves throughout the season. The leaves block the sun and trap water, so mold and disease are free to wreak havoc on your grass. As an added bonus, the damp and rotting leaves create an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes and can make your lawn almost uninhabitable when spring and summer arrive.
If you want to enjoy your lawn during the warmer months, it’s important to clear away fallen leaves in the autumn so they’re not contributing to mold, mildew and mosquito growth later. Raking or blowing your leaves into a pile is the easy part, though, compared to finding a reliable system of disposal for those leaves. You can’t set them on fire and you can’t throw them in with the household garbage, so what should you do?
Getting Leaves Off Your Property Responsibly
As with any other debris or garbage, there are responsible and ethical methods for getting rid of your leaves. Recycling centers turn them into anything from rich compost to fine mulch, but those leaves have to first make it to the appropriate facility.
