To avoid damage to your lawn like snow mold and dead or bare patches, we recommend removing leaves from the lawn in fall.
When large drifts of leaves are left on the grass and planting beds until spring they smother the grass and provide a habitat for overwintering garden pests like cabbage worms and the truly annoying fungus gnats.
To take care of the light cover of leaves you see after a storm or in early fall, our mowers are outfitted with "mulching" blades. These blades cut leaf debris up into tiny pieces that feed your lawn as they decompose.
However the sheer volume of leaves that remain on the ground at the end of the fall can not be addressed in this way.
