Leaves Sitting in Gutter Cumming GANow that the winter weather is settling in, you probably have a layer of crinkly or soggy brown leaves that have fallen on your turf. Just because you won’t be mowing as often during the winter, doesn’t meant it’s necessarily okay to “leave your leaves.” In fact, neglecting to remove fallen leaves can contribute to the following problems on your landscape:

  • Clogged drains
  • Smothered lawn and blocked sunlight
  • Lawn diseases from wet, moldy leaves
  • More rodents and bugs

Now that we know that you shouldn’t just leave them alone, what exactly should you do with those fallen leaves? You have two options: mulch or removal. The best answer depends on the size of your property and how many trees you have. Unless you simply have too many leaves, mulching is often the most beneficial to your lawn.
