Fall is officially here along with an excess of leaves on your lawn. One of the main landscaping tasks you need to fulfill this fall is leaf removal. You want to avoid leaves covering your lawn entirely because it can prevent your grass from receiving necessary nutrients and growing properly. The last thing you want is for leaves to still be on your lawn once a heavy snowfall hits your property. Luckily, there are few simple tips you can follow when it comes to leaf removal.
Invest In A Leaf Blower
Depending on the size of your property, using a rake to collect of your leaves might be too labor intensive. If you want an efficient way to remove all of the leaves from your large lawn, then you should invest in a leaf blower. Advancements in technology have made battery-powered model readily available for homeowners. All you have to do is use a blower with a vacuum feature so that it will bag your leaves for you.
Use a Mower
When it comes to removing leaves from your lawn, using a lawn mower is an effective method. If you have a light amount of leaves on your lawn, you can use a mulching mower to shred and chop the leaves in tiny pieces. This process is a form of composting which allows your grass to absorb the nutrients and organic matter from the leaves. Leaving the leaf mulch on your lawn allows your grass to survive the frigid winter months and have an improved appearance in the spring.
Lay Down a Tarp
If you want to remove the leaves from your lawn in an efficient manner, then you should invest in a tarp. All you have to do is lay down your tarp in an area that is clear of leaves and then rake or blow the leaves in a pile on the tarp. Once all the leaves are removed from the grass, you just have to wrap up the tarp.
