A common misconception
is that leaves left on a lawn is good fertilizer for the lawn. The truth
is that damp leaves left on the lawn will damage grass.
Not only do they shade the grass during late fall when it is still growing,
but they weaken the grass over winter. The wet leaves mat down and smother
the grass. How you care for your autumn lawn determines, to a great
extent, its health for the following year. Take
good care of your lawn in the fall, and it will look great
in winter, spring and summer.
Rakes are important
in the fall to perform the very best lawn care. Raking leaves
every couple of days as they are falling off the trees has the dual
benefit of exposing the grass to as much sunshine as possible and aerating
the soil by the action of the raking. Removing leaves is best done when
the lawn is dry, so get this done in early Autumn, before the weather
turns wet. The leaves can then be
used for composting, along with any grass cuttings. To make
lawn care easier, rake your leaves into the Amazing
Leaf Cart and wheel them away to your compost pile where
they'll be converted to rich, organic humus to create mulch and fertilizer
for the spring.
is the most eco-friendly alternative to burning. Dry leaves alone will
take a long time to break down but mixing in green plant materials,
such as summer flowers and plants youve pulled for the year as
well as twigs and grass clippings will speed up the process. Sources
of nitrogen, such as livestock manure or commercial fertilizer, will
also help. Mix the pile occasionally to keep a good supply of air in
the compost. A compost pile should be a minimum of three cubic feet
and will generate soil conditioner within weeks or a few months, depending
on conditions. Make sure to include a layer of dirt between each foot
of leaves. Make sure to turn the pile once a month to ensure overall
In addition to composting
your leaves, use your Amazing Leaf Cart to
transport some of them to put under trees and shrubs where they will
compost themselves. Then, when spring returns, you will need significantly
less new bark mulch to cover the areas surrounding your trees and shrubbery.
Research has shown that trees fair better when they have a mulched area
surrounding them. The mulch will improve the trees health and
increase its growth rate. The leaves covering the majority of your lawn,
however, need to be cleared away if you want decent grass come spring.
You dont need to rake every time the wind blows, but waiting too
long will make for much harder work.
