Raking away leaves from your lawn is important to take care of before the Winter. If you seeded in the Fall, it is crucial to rake away your leaves so the new grass can receive sun light and water.
Getting rid of leaves can be done by either raking them up and bagging them, or by mowing them into pieces. If you mow the leaves, be sure the leaves are dry when you mow.
If you leave leaves on your lawn during the Winter and snow falls on top of it for extended periods of time, it can lead to lawn fungus growing.
