Why is seasonal yard cleanup important?

There are a few important benefits of seasonal clean up:

  • It eliminates potential health risks – Debris and leaves can create serious issues for your plants, your lawn, and your loved ones. Dead, rotting leaves and plants create a damp blanket that traps in moisture and creates the ideal breeding ground for mold and fungus. Mold is not only harmful and toxic to your lawn and plants, but to your health as well.

  • It allows for new growth and gives your yard a neat appearance.
