• Don’t forgot to blow or remove the leaves on your lawn during the winter months.

    There are sound reasons removing leaves off your lawn relating to the health of the lawn and not just to make it look neat and tidy.

    1. Lawns need to “breathe.” A layer of leaves left on the lawn can smother the lawn.

    2. Leaving a layer of leaves on the lawn can invite pests and disease such as Fusarium (Snow Mould).

    3. Water, nutrients and air flow can be obstructed by the layer of leaves thereby reducing any goodness getting into the root zone.

    4. If they become well matted down they can significantly impact new grass growth and even leave bald patches on the lawn.

    5. And of course…Your lawn care provider will love you doing this too as it will mean all the good stuff they put on will produce much better results.
