Category Archives: Leaves on Lawns

Autumn can be a beautiful time of the year, with trees and shrubs looking colourful. For some lawn owners this can also be a frustrating time. Leaves will fall from trees creating extra work clearing them from your lawn. As you as you clear one set, more leaves fall. Leaves blow around your garden and can create thick carpets at the edges and in the corners.

Leaves on lawns

While leaves can make a lovely soil conditioning leaf mould, they can also kill your grass. Leaves on lawns can shade out the grass, preventing it from using much needed winter sunshine. Grass will quickly turn yellow and die. Leaves on lawns also reduce air circulation, creating the ideal habitat for fungal diseases. Prevent these problems by keeping an eye on your lawn during the early winter months.
