Help us keep Timnath beautiful this fall by taking care of fallen leaves on your property and removing them from sidewalks. Instead, try one of these neighborhood-friendly ways to dispose of excess leaves:
- Mulch your leaves. Add a layer of leaves to your garden beds to add protection from the cold, wet weather and you’ll have healthier plants in the springtime.
- Treat your lawn. Fall leaves are full of nutrients that provide all-natural lawn food. Use your mower to turn your leaves into tiny pieces that settle and decompose, and you’ll have a happy yard come springtime.
- Bag your leaves and have them removed.
- Make your own compost. Pile up the leaves in a place where they will be undisturbed over the winter and they will become rich compost by springtime next year.
In addition to excess leaves, fall brings cooling temperatures. Make sure to winterize your sprinkler system with an end of season blow out. If you’re not sure how, ask a local landscaper to help—you’ll avoid much costlier repairs in the long run.
