Why Do Fall Leaves Fall?

Why Do The Leaves Fall In Overland Park, Kansas City and Leawood?

Why Do Leaves Fall?

We all love looking at the leaves as they change color in the fall in Overland Park, Kansas City and Leawood but have you ever considered why the leaves eventually fall and need to be removed from your lawn? At SK Lawn Care, we have often wondered while removing leaves from lawns in Kansas City, Overland Park and Leawood and here is what we have learned.

As winter approaches in Kansas City, Overland Park & Leawood, there is less sunlight and trees (and your lawn) begin to prepare for winter.  In the spring and summer, the leaves act as a source of retrieving sunlight, water and air for the tree but in the winter there is typically less water, cold and dry air and less sunlight over the course of a day. As a survival mechanism, trees will “shed off” their leaves and seal where the stems of the leaves where once attached thus cutting off the tree’s support to the leaves at which time they turn color and fall into your lawn.

Once the leaves have fallen onto your lawn, they create a protective barrier between air, sunlight and water from reaching your lawn and your grass’ roots.  Without leaf removal, your lawn in Kansas City, Overland Park and Leawood may lose to the leaves over the course of the winter. SK Lawn Care has upgraded its leaf removal and lawn cleanup equipment this year in order to better serve our customer’s leaf removal needs.
