Mulching is Great For Your Sherwood Lawn
Throughout the year, leaves build up on your lawn from the trees near your property. It can be hard to decide what to do with these leaves. Should you leave them to decay on your lawn or clean them all away? Is there another option you haven't thought of?
Many people believe leaving leaves to decompose on their lawn is the best option to promote growth. While it is true that decomposing leaves provide several essential nutrients to your lawn, it's also dangerous to leave a large buildup of leaves on your lawn.
The reason for this is that, during the winter months, these leaves will freeze, and your lawn will lie dormant. Because of this, the leaves don't have enough time before winter comes to decompose completely. Once spring hits, the leaves create a protective layer of decomposing material between your lawn and the sunlight it needs to survive, which can irreparably damage your lawn.
Not only does your lawn not grow, but leaves provide the perfect place for mold, mildew, and bugs to find their home.
Most people then jump to the next obvious choice: remove all leaves.
Removing leaves from your lawn isn't necessarily a bad idea. The leaves won't stay on your lawn throughout the winter months and your lawn will get the sunlight it needs during the spring and summer months.
However, this takes away the essential nutrients decomposing leaves provide to your lawn.
The best option for your lawn is to invest in mulching your leaves. Mulching breaks your leaves down into small pieces that are then spread throughout your lawn in the fall. These smaller pieces decompose much faster, which provides the nutrients your lawn needs without the danger of cutting off sunlight.
