Fall Leave Recycling
Leaf recycling is a sustainable landscaping practice that is handled in two phases by the landscapers.
During the earlier and later parts of the leaf drop season, the contractor typically addresses lighter amounts of leaves in parking lots and streets by mulching them back into the lawn areas. The mowers are equipped with mulching decks that also contain a special mulching blade to reduce the leaves into a fine leaf compost which becomes fertilizer for the grass. Care is taken to avoid an unhealthy accumulation of leaf compost to any one lawn area which can kill the grass. Both stand-on and backpack blowers are used to direct the leaves into larger turf areas for a more uniform disbursement by the mulching mowers.
During the heaviest leaf drop period the same process of leaf mulching occurs, but leaf pick-up also becomes necessary. Leaf removal/pick-up requires the contractor to utilize backpack blowers and stand-on blowers to create piles which are moved by tarps to a designated pick-up area. Pick-up is done by large vacuum trucks and the leaves are all taken to Arlington County for recycling into compost.
We know this can be a dusty and noisy process, but it is necessary to handle the pileup of leaves in a sustainable way, so we appreciate your patience.
