Commercial businesses in Dallas tend to reside in landscaping surrounded by trees that shade the property during warm summers. Sure, these natural beauties provide your commercial landscaping with some comfort, but what happens when the leaves eventually fall.
Most business owners would say rake them up and dump them out. However, at Yepez Maintenance Service, we believe that creating mulch from the mess is an even better solution. Here are some of our tips for mulching your dead leaves and why you should do it.
Mulching Makes your Lawn Happy!
Every lawn care professional knows that there are several benefits to mulching leaves. The biggest one being, that your lawn thrives from a fresh mulch. The key benefits of mulching include:
- Added curb appeal
- Protection against the elements
- Moisture conservation
- Improved soil
The best part about mulching is that you can essentially create it with the leaves and “waste” created naturally and through lawn care services.
Leaving Your Leaves Leads to Landscaping Problems
The decision to let resting leaves lie is one that can create lawn issues once the numbers start stacking up. Although a few leaves scattered around your building won’t be a problem, neglected leaves will prevent your grass from getting the sunlight it needs.
Accumulated leaf piles also create a moist and moldy environment that could promote disease on your lawn, creating permanent bald and discolored patches.
Leaves can even end up costing your business money beyond lawn replacement. Unremoved leaves can easily lodge in your building’s gutters and either freeze over or build up water that begins to slowly damage your location’s roof.
Invest in a Mulching Mower
If you want to make your mulching efforts efficient, investment in a mulching mower can help. These pieces of equipment are designed with a high deck and ensure that the blade cuts up leaves and grass into small pieces. In order to have an instant mulching effect, use your mulching mower without a collection bag and simply spread the nutrients as they are made.
