Piles of dry leaves can clog drains and cause slow drainage of water or even flooding. Standing water damages hardscapes and lawns as it causes water stress and deterioration. Dry leaves that become wet in the rain will become heavy and start to rot. They can suppress the grass beneath, creating an ideal environment for fungus and mold. Leaves on lawns also block the grass from receiving sunlight to grow, thus weakening them.
Unwanted debris such as fallen branches, overgrowth, and plant waste should be cleared to maintain the health and appearance of a landscape. If a property is littered with debris, it will reduce the curb appeal. Cleaning a landscape of leaves and debris can be time-consuming work without the right equipment.
At Down To Earth Landscape & Irrigation, we use quality equipment to remove fallen leaves and organic debris to relieve landscapes of unwanted clutter.
