As the temperatures start to cool down, there is still a lot of work to do on your St. Louis Landscape. Some of the work is in an effort to prepare it for the cold temperatures while other tasks are to ensure a healthy growing environment once spring rolls around once again. Whatever the reason, you should definitely discuss fall clean-up and leaf removal with your Landscaping St. Louis Landscaping professional.

While many lawn care companies do offer fall leaf removal, there are some steps you can take in between visits. Raking leaves is almost an American past time, but you may not know how beneficial this habit actually is. If leaves are left on your lawn, the turf beneath will not have adequate access to sunlight, water or other nutrients it needs, especially during a time when daylight is fading and your lawn needs to soak up all it can while it’s available.

Another great reason to have fallen leaves removed from your St. Louis Landscape is because of the risk of developing fungus. The damp leaves are the perfect breeding ground for mold, especially if you have temperature drops. Some unlucky homeowners may not discover until spring that a fungus has developed and by then, the damage may be so severe that a lawn renovation is required.

Do you have a vibrantly green lawn? If you want it to remain that way, leaf removal is a must. A blanket of leaves can cause your lawn to brown. Leaf removal may seem like a lot of work, but you can simplify the process by deciding to mulch the leaves rather than rake them. Mulching allows you to put the nutrients within the leaves back into the ground since the mulched leaves will decompose over time.

Landscaping Tip: Fall Checklist

by on January 14, 2020

Many people find the bi-annual daylight savings to be a time to check in on their house to make sure everything is working properly and running smoothly. They may make it a time to inspect their roofing or plumbing, but include smaller tasks such as checking smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Depending on the part of the country you live in, you may be in for a long, cold winter. Or, you could just be slightly inconvenienced by some chilly weather. Wherever you live, there are definitely some tasks you can consider when daylight savings time is once again upon us. Here are some as recommended by your Landscaping St. Louis Landscaping professionals.

The most obvious task is to check your clocks. Replace batteries in wall clocks to make sure the time doesn’t fall behind and consequently, you as well. While you’re on battery patrol, check the batteries in flashlights as well. You should have a few well-placed flashlights throughout your home in case of a loss of power, as well as in your car in case of a break down at night.

If you have an irrigation system, you may want to have that checked by Landscaping St. Louis Landscaping professionals or do it yourself if you can. You can also check your thermostat if it’s on a timed program and make sure you’re setting it for the correct temperature, given any temperature changes you will experience due to seasonal changes.  Many people also use this time of year to check or replace their furnace filter. This is especially important because it keeps your system running as it should.

And of course, there’s always fall leaf removal! Call your Landscaping St. Louis Landscaping professionals to see what needs to be done before winter sets in!
