Autumn is a beautiful season of colorful leaves, brisk mornings and gentle breezes. Unfortunately, this also means falling leaves and a covered landscape. While it is easy to assume that raking leaves and removing debris from your lawn is for the sake of appearance, you should also know that fall cleanups are also necessary for the health of your turf.
For those that are overwhelmed by the fall cleanup process in your yard, Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping can help. We offer professional yard cleanup services to ensure your yard can survive and thrive during the upcoming seasons.
The Risk of Standing Leaves
Leaving leaves to linger on your grass creates an open invitation for lawn disease and fungi to breed. These diseases can wreak havoc on the health of your lawn and even sabotage its appearance when spring comes. While raking may seem like a laborious or time-consuming task, consider the money and time you are saving in treating lawn diseases.
How does disease develop under fallen leaves? The issue comes when precipitation hits the leaves. Whether rain, sleet or snow, the added moisture can saturate and decay the once crisp leaves. This creates a thick layer of rot above the grass, which means slimy leaves with the potential for mold, mildew and fungi across your landscape.
The following are common lawn diseases that can develop when leaves are not raked in a timely manner during the fall:
- Dollar Spot
- Leaf Spot
- Powdery Mildew
- Spring Dead Spot
