It's Fall!

As the crisp autumn breeze dances through the trees and leaves start painting the landscape with vibrant hues of red, orange, and yellow, it’s time for homeowners to embrace the enchanting season of fall. But with fall comes a special responsibility – maintaining your yard. At Mitchum Lawn, we believe that regular fall yard cleanup and leaf mulching are the secrets to a happy, healthy lawn, and we’re about to spill the leaves – I mean, beans – on why!

Leaf Me Alone - A Clean Yard:

Fallen leaves may be charming, but they can quickly turn your beautiful lawn into a messy, leafy carpet. Regular yard cleanup ensures your yard remains clutter-free and ready to impress guests, neighbors, and even those friendly squirrels.

Lawn Health 101:

Leaves not only create an unsightly mess but can also smother your grass, depriving it of essential sunlight and oxygen. This can lead to dead patches and a weakened lawn. A clean yard in the fall is the first step to ensuring a lush, green lawn come spring.

Mulch Ado About Nutrients:

Falling leaves are a nutrient-providing part of your yard’s ecosystem. So how do we take care of the unsightly piles, while still helping things grow? Mulching!

Leaf mulching isn’t just about tidiness; it’s a nutrient-rich gift to your lawn. Our Mitchum team can mulch those leaves into a fine, natural fertilizer, providing your lawn with the nutrients it needs to thrive. This eco-friendly approach benefits both your wallet and the environment!

Pest Patrol:

Leaves left to linger can become a cozy home for pests like mice and insects. Regular cleanup eliminates this pest-friendly habitat, keeping your lawn pest-free and your outdoor gatherings enjoyable.

Preventing Moldy Mayhem:

Damp leaves can become a breeding ground for mold and disease. By removing leaves , you’re taking proactive steps to protect your lawn from potential fungal infestations that could haunt your yard for seasons to come.

Aeration Appreciation:

Leaf mulching not only adds nutrients but also improves the soil structure. It allows air and water to penetrate the soil more easily, promoting healthy root growth and overall lawn vitality.

A clean, well-maintained yard enhances your home’s curb appeal, making it more attractive to potential buyers if you’re considering selling. Even if you’re not, a gorgeous yard is a source of pride for any homeowner.
