Now that the weather has turned colder the leaves are falling. It is important to keep fallen leaves off your lawn.
While raking your lawn is a tedious task, it's important to maintain a healthy lawn. Keeping leaves off the lawn helps the grass to grow. Leaves prevent the sunlight from getting through, smothering the lawn, which effects growth. In addition, it is important to let your lawn breath.
Removing leaves helps prevent the spread of fungus and disease not only to the grass, but also to trees and plants.
Raking helps remove any thatch that has built up on the lawn.
Raking leaves is a good physical activity! So get out there and get that lawn cleaned up!!
