If you want to do less yard work this summer, be environmentally-friendly, and still have a beautiful yard, keep yard waste out of the street, sidewalk, driveway, and storm drain. Executive Lawn Care only recommends weekly mulch mowing only during the high growth summer season for all yards.
Did you know? Yard waste blown or swept into the street, sidewalk, driveway, or storm drain can end up in nearby creeks, streams and lakes. Yard waste in our local waterways kills fish and other aquatic life because it depletes oxygen from the water. It can also clog a storm drain which increases the risk of flooding.
Instead, leave them on the lawn. Grass clippings left on the lawn can provide up to 25% of the lawn’s total fertilizer needs. Leaves contain 50 to 80% of the nutrients a plant extracts from the soil and air during the season. They will provide a natural fertilizer and return valuable nutrients to the soil, producing a beautiful, green lawn.
