Skipping Leaf Removal This Year Could Be Detrimental To Your Lawn!

Autumn in Calgary means leaf piles, the smell of pumpkin spice, and the taste of cinnamon. However, after some time, you’ll need to do something about those leaf piles! It can be easy to turn a blind eye and let the snow cover them up, but this is a huge mistake. Leaf piles can gravely affect your lawn’s health. The piles sit on your lawn, smothering your grass and creating dark, moist environments for pests and lawn diseases to thrive! The solution to dealing with your leaf piles is simple: schedule a leaf removal service! This is key to keeping healthy, green grass!



Leaf piles can attract pests to your lawn.

Red, orange, and yellow leaves are gorgeous symbols of seasonal change! However, despite how stunning the different colours look, fallen leaves can pile up on your lawn and create a moist, dark environment for insects to live in.

As the weather gets colder, pests can crawl under the leaf piles to find warmth and even a food source. The organic material provides both protection and a buffet of nutrients for desperate insects looking to stay cozy in the fall and winter. You can prevent pests by scheduling a leaf removal service to get rid of the piles on your property.

Sow bugs and pills bugs are two pests that feed on decaying leaves in Alberta!


Leaf piles can create the perfect environment for lawn disease.

Leaf piles attract more than just tiny pill bugs! The dark, moist areas create ideal environments for lawn disease to develop. These diseases can then wreak havoc across your turf by creating a wide number of problems, including discoloration and patchy areas. You won’t be aware of these diseases until the snow melts in the spring. Turning a blind eye to the leaf piles on your lawn might seem like a good idea now; however, come springtime, you’ll wish you didn’t ignore them! Some turf diseases require professional treatments to get rid of them as well as various lawn care services to nurse your grass back to health.

Turf diseases can take your lawn a step back in whatever progress it has made. Luckily, a professional lawn maintenance company can remove the leaves off your turf, helping prevent lawn disease!



Leaf piles smother your grass and block vital resources.

Leaf piles coat the top of your lawn and smother your grass! Because the layer blankets your turf, it can work as a barrier and block essential resources like water, sunlight, and nutrients from reaching the roots of your grass. As a result, your lawn will no longer have access to some of the resources it needs to stay healthy and strong.

The lack of sunshine and water can essentially result in weakened turf, brown patches, and, in some cases, dead grass! This makes the leaf piles on your lawn a nuisance.


Save yourself from a lawn nightmare in the spring. Call today to schedule our leaf removal service!
