The leaves fall from the trees every year – it’s a matter of fact. They can look very pretty lying there on your lawn and thinking, ‘a few leaves won’t hurt’ however - there are a few dangers in giving them free reign over your garden.
Your grass is a living organism and requires both air and sunlight to create food, and grow. Allowing thick piles of leaves to gather on your lawn will prevent sunlight from reaching the grass, therefore suffocating it. Leaving leaves for even just three weeks, may be enough to damage your grass and leave a muddy mess.
