Fall is a beautiful time of the year. But the leaves usually look prettier on the trees then they do on your yard. Did you know that letting leaves sit on your lawn for an extended period of time can be damaging? Your lawn becomes deprived of oxygen and sunlight. Additionally, moisture can get trapped underneath the leaves causing fungus which can leave your grass in rough shape.
