Fall is the most colorful time of year in Western NY and many people look forward to the color show put on by Mother Nature.
As beautiful as it is Fall also creates a lot of work for homeowners. Some will "leave the leafs where they land." This is becoming a popular idea as an effort to conserve space in landfills. In our modern yards too many leaves can cause problems for the lawn so home owners have to consider the possible damage caused by too many leaves or remove them from the yard.
Leaving the leaves can also create a problem when they blow into the roadway and get rained on. Wet leaves can be nearly as slippery as ice. Also It also could present a hazard in piles if they are near where cars travel and kids play in the piles.
Raking up the leaves can be a back breaking, tiring effort. Some communities let you rake the leaves into the street but most don't as then the community has to remove them or have a lot of extra leaves getting into and clogging the storm drain system. Some communities require that you use brown lawn refuse bags and pick them up on the same day as trash collection in an additional truck.
Homeowners also have the option of hiring a lawn care company to remove the leaves for them. Homeowners on Grand Island NY can contact us to be put on our schedule and we will either mulch the leaves into the yard when mowing or bag and remove the leaves along with small branches as the homeowner prefers.
