For many, fall is the best time to enjoy the outdoors in North Texas. Between football games, festivals, & countless other events who wants to spend their weekend doing chores? A study published recently in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that when people spend money on time-saving services, such as lawn care, it can actually make them feel happier. The science makes sense - although you might be perfectly capable of raking your own leaves the opportunity to buy back a bit of free time has a huge return on investment.
When left on your lawn leaves can kill the grass since they block sunlight and air. They also provide a refuge for insects that can make their way into your home easily when leaves pile up around weep holes in bricks.
