The fall season is upon us, which means beautiful fall foliage. Unfortunately, those beautiful fall colors don’t stay on the trees for long. By now most of the leaves are all over your yard! Not to mention the pine needles! Fall landscaping in Fayetteville NC means leaf removal, but it doesn’t have to be back-breaking or exhausting. Below are some helpful tips for leaf removal.
Many homeowners rake their leaves, but this is the most labor-intensive method. If you have to rake, make sure you’re careful not to over exert yourself and hurt your back. Blowing your leaves with a leaf blower can be an easier option. Blow your leaves from your yard and garden into a large pile on a tarp. You can then move the tarp roadside for pickup. If you bag your leaves, do not use plastic bags. Plastic bags cannot be recycled. Be sure to use bio-degradable trash bags to collect leaves for pickup. Another option for fall landscaping in Fayetteville NC is to use leaves in compost. Adding leaves and pine needles to your compost pile will result in a high quality compost for spring planting.
