Even though it may not feel like it outside, fall has arrived! Leaves are falling, but what should you do to keep your yard clean? Many people rake up the leaves, put them in bags, and dispose of them. However, leaves have nutrients that are beneficial for your yard! There are better options than just throwing away those leaves.
Leaves can’t just be left in your yard after they fall. They block air and sunlight from reaching the grass roots. This can become even worse if it rains and the leaves are matted on top of the grass. If something isn’t done to falling leaves, your yard may develop turf diseases or die.
Turn those leaves into mulch! Many mowers are designed with mulching blades that cut the leaves into tiny pieces. So tiny, that you won’t even notice that the leaves are in your yard anymore. It is important that you are mulching the fallen leaves at least once a week. If leaves are left to build up for too long it could be too much for your mower. If you have several big trees on your property, you may even need to mow twice a week, depending on how rapidly the leaves are falling.
It is important to mulch in the fall to supply your yard with nutrients before winter comes. By utilizing the leaves in your yard you are saving money because you’ll make your own mulch for free! It will also save you time because instead of raking for hours and placing in bags, you can mulch in the leaves with a mower.
