Reasons to Consider Mulching Your Fall Leaves Cumming , GA
Leaf Mulching Alpharetta GA

As autumn makes its entrance onto your Georgia landscape, you’ll watch falling leaves begin to cover the green grass you’ve worked so hard to keep up during the last several months. While you may admire the beauty of fall colors blanketing your backyard, it’s rarely a good idea to let those leaves lie there for long. In fact, to keep your lawn healthy during the fall and winter, it is important that you either rake or mulch fallen leaves.

Don’t Leave Your Leaves

A thick coating of leaves across your lawn can essentially suffocate your grass and deprive it of the sunlight and oxygen it needs to survive. It is also common to have large clumps of wet leaves. When left to linger, these piles can create soggy areas of mud within your turf. If allowed to stay through the winter, fallen leaves can freeze and over-saturate your grass when they melt.

Your Grass Can Use Leaves

Your lawn can get some valued benefits from fallen leaves. These rich-colored leaves contain nutrients that enrich your soil when they biodegrade, such as carbon, nitrogen and other organic matter. Unfortunately, the time it takes for your leaves to naturally breakdown on their own can be too late for the benefits to outweigh the consequences on your turf. But – there is a way to get the benefits of leaves without risking lawn suffocation and other landscape setbacks.

Why Mulching is Ideal

It is common for homeowners to spend hours raking their leaves to uncover their grass. While this is certainly better than neglecting the fallen leaves altogether, there is another approach to your fall leaves. Mulching leaves is the process of chopping leaves into smaller, more easily broken down pieces. This allows your grass to use the nutrients of the leaves while still staying tidy and healthy.

Mulching is easier than you may think. Simply mow over the fallen leaves and use the side discharge on your mower to spread the leaf clipping across your turf. Breaking down the leaves makes for a neater appearance, and it also allows the leaves to biodegrade faster so that your grass can reap the nutrients.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
