4 Reasons Why Fall Clean-Up Is Important

Leaves are falling and the holiday season is right around the corner, which means that winter will be here before we know it. A fall clean-up will help prepare your lawn for the winter months ahead and ensure that you have a thick, green, lush lawn next year. Why should you schedule your fall clean-up with JFC Grounds Maintenance now?

4 Reasons Why Fall Clean-Up Is Important

  1. Fall clean-ups help to protect your lawn. Fallen leaves can create a gorgeous color palette on your lawn, but once they start to accumulate and decay they can create a barrier on top of your lawn that will prevent water, sunlight and air from getting to the grass and grass roots. Over time, this can lead to brown patches, disease and other negative effects. Leaf removal might not be fun, but it can be easy when you work with JFC Grounds Maintenance.
  2. When you have a fall clean-up, you are also protecting the trees and other plants in your yard. During the clean-up process, pruning limbs and branches that are dead, dying or otherwise in need of removal will ensure the plants can remain healthy. We can also take care of other activities that preserve plant health, like mulching.
  3. If you don’t clean up your yard in the fall, you are also putting yourself at an increased risk of pest issues. Bugs love moisture and will lay eggs underneath organic material in your yard. Rodents also will find shelter in clutter or debris, like piles of leaves in your yard.
  4. Before the rain and snow that fall during the late fall and winter period in Maryland, it’s a good idea to have your gutters completely clear and ready to direct water away from your home. When your gutters are clogged, it can lead to serious issues when snow and ice melt and have nowhere to drain.
