As the leaves begin to fall, your lawn can quickly become overwhelmed with debris, causing potential damage to your grass and a less-than-impressive appearance. At Hobart Lawn Care, we understand the need to keep your yard clean throughout the year. One of the important and often overlooked tasks to keep your yard healthy is leaf removal. Fallen leaves can cause damage to your lawn and garden if left around, especially in the colder months. Our team of pros provides great leaf removal services tailored to meet your needs.
Our personalized approach ensures that we work with you to determine the best course of action for your lawn. We use proper raking techniques to remove the leaves efficiently, without damaging your grass or plants. Our team is equipped with the best tools for the job, ensuring that the work is done quickly and efficiently.

Also, bagged leaves can be a valuable resource for your garden. We can bag the leaves for you and leave them in a designated area for your use. Or, we can also haul them away if you prefer. Whichever is best for you.
Trees like maples, oaks, and birches are common culprits of lawn damage from falling leaves, producing copious amounts of leaves that can quickly accumulate and cause damage to lawns and gardens if not properly managed. However, it's not just the quantity of leaves that can be a problem; certain types of leaves, such as those from black walnut trees, contain chemicals that can inhibit the growth of nearby plants and vegetation. As such, it's important for homeowners to be mindful of the types of trees in their yards and how their leaves may impact their landscape.
Another example of a tree with leaves that may cause damage is the oak tree. Oak leaves are tough, waxy, and slow to break down, which can lead to a buildup of thatch on the lawn. Thatch is a layer of dead organic material that accumulates on the surface of the soil. When thatch gets too thick, it can prevent water, air, and nutrients from reaching the roots of the grass, leading to poor growth and health.
Leaf removal should be done at least twice a year, in the fall and spring. However, the frequency may vary depending on the amount of foliage in your yard and the rate at which the leaves fall. Signs that your yard may need leaf removal include excessive leaf accumulation on the ground, leaves covering plants or flowerbeds, and the grass appearing yellow or dead. If you notice any of these signs, it may be time to schedule a leaf removal service with Hobart Lawn Care.
