Why Leaf Removal is Important for Your Yard
Is your yard so full of leaves that you can barely see the grass beneath it? Are you wondering how you’re going to be able to remove all those leaves? Here at Shreveport Lawn and Landscape, we understand how hard it is to rake your yard every week, only for it to be covered in leaves again the following week.
Thankfully, we offer Leaf Removal Services so you won’t have to do all the back-breaking work of raking your yard for hours. Not only that, but after another week or two, more leaves will fall and you’ll have to do the work all over again until all the leaves have fallen from your trees. Obviously, you don’t want to wait until every leaf has fallen, as that just makes your yard look tacky, and no one wants to see that.
Fall/Autumn is a beautiful time of year, as the leaves changes colors, and the temperature around Shreveport and Bossier City start to cool down. Here are a few facts about leaf removal that you might not have known:
- Lawn Care Companies are more efficient. When you hire a professional lawn care company to remove the leaves from your yard, they have equipment that can do it much faster than you can with your trusty old rake. Some use special vacuums that can suck up the leaves, and then mulches them. Other companies might use a blower to blow them into a pile and then haul them away for you.
- Mulch your leaves back into the yard. It may surprise some people to know that using a lawn mower to mulch your leaves back into the grass, will result in a much healthier yard in the spring time. Although if you have many trees, and a ton of leaves, this might not be the best option after all. You don’t want to over-mulch as this will cause the same issues as having a layer of leaves on top of your grass. You can use a lot of the mulch in your garden as well, and around trees and shrubs.
If you are elderly, have health issues or just don’t want to deal with the hassle of removing the leaves yourself, then Shreveport Lawn and Landscape will gladly come out and take care of the leaves for you. Prices will vary depending on the size of your yard, and how many leaves have already fallen. Give us a call today for a FREE estimate! 318-524-8729.
