Lawn Care Tips
Things To Do With Dead Leaves
With winter here, your trees have likely shed a lot of leaves. You don’t want to leave them on the ground since they can damage your grass or flowers, be unsightly, and they can pool up water in areas leaving algae.
1. Clean up the leaves
You can remove your leaves by using a rake, bags, a blower, or a lawn sweeper. You can then throw them in the garbage or have someone come pick them up for disposal. Most large companies will use a lawn sweeper to remove them.
2. Mulch the leaves
Another option is to mulch them your lawnmower. This is a good option for a smaller amount of leaves because it will lead to decomposition faster and fertilize your lawn.
3. Collect some of them
Fall leaves can be very beautiful and you can use them to make crafty arrangements.
4. Create a compost
Good compost has a range of different materials and leaves can be one of them. Collect a good bit of leaves and either pile them or put them in a compost bin to speed up the process of composting them for spring garden fertilization.
