Jacksonville leaf removal services
Dozens of tree species are native to Jacksonville and are incredible features on residential properties throughout the area. Many new species have been introduced to the city and thrive in the local climate. In addition to beautifying yards, they provide essential shade for other vegetation and the home's residents.
The leaves of most of these species do not change color and fall to the ground in autumn thanks to the splendid local climate. However, there are several other reasons why trees can and do drop their leaves. These include stress, severe storms, and disease. Also, all leaves will eventually fall to the ground through natural processes, especially aging. While most people associate raking and removing leaves with colder climates, the reality is that Jacksonville residents also must rake leaves periodically to keep their yards looking great. Unlike other areas of the country, leaf removal is a year-round task in this city.
Some of the more common tree species in Jacksonville and throughout the surrounding areas are sassafras, flowering dogwood, sweet gum, persimmon, cypress, and others. There are also grand oak trees inland that typically shed leaves habitually in early spring.
Jacksonville sits on the northeastern coast of Florida along the Atlantic Ocean, and its climate is classified as humid subtropical. Summers in this region of Florida are generally hot, and heavy downpours are frequent in afternoons and evenings. Tropical storms and hurricanes can be problematic during the summer and early fall as well. Winter months are generally dry, and freezing temperatures, ice, and snow are uncommon. Low temperatures throughout the year in Jacksonville average between the low 40s and middle 70s. Highs range from the 60s in the winter months to the low 90s in the summer months.
Many of the same trees that are found on residential properties also thrive in protected areas, including the Timucuan Preserve, Little Talbot Island State Park, Yellow Bluff Fort Historic Park, Amelia Island State Park, and others. Many city parks are scattered throughout the area as well and are home to gorgeous trees. These include Hanna Park, the Southbank Riverwalk, St. Johns River Park, Hemming Park, Klutho Park, and others.
Leaves can drop on your lawn at any time of year, and they can also blow into your yard from other properties. These leaves cannot remain on the lawn for an extended time as they can cause significant damage. Leaves blanketing the lawn prevent the grass from receiving an adequate amount of sunlight and water. Fresh air is also restricted. The grass will eventually become patchy and bare. Diseases may be more problematic, such as brown patch and large patch. Jacksonville residents, in many cases, can prevent these various types of damage by merely raking leaves as needed.
Unfortunately, raking leaves is often challenging for residents. With Jacksonville's heat and humidity, many people prefer to do yard work early in the morning. Raking leaves may take several hours to complete depending on the size of the job. This is hard work, and the weather conditions can easily wear you out. In some instances, you may not have enough free time available at the most convenient times of the day to do yard work. Leaving the tree debris on the ground, however, is not an option.
Many people would rather spend the minimal amount of free time that they have in more relaxing ways. This may be something as simple as reclining on your patio with a good book, or it may be something more elaborate. For example, Jacksonville hosts several popular festivals throughout the year that may entice you to leave yard work behind. These festivals include the Jacksonville Jazz Fest, the Jacksonville Freedom Fest, the Caribefest, the Great Atlantic Festival, and others. These are also wonderful times to venture out to local parks. There, you can enjoy the majesty of native trees without having to worry about doing yard work. You can also participate in various activities, including fishing, biking, hiking, swimming, and more.
When the weather is beautiful, you may bring a few friends or family members with you to other outdoor destinations in the Jacksonville area. These include the Tree Hill Nature Center, the Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens or the Jacksonville Zoo. Many local sporting events for pro and semi-pro Jacksonville teams are held outdoors throughout the year as well. These include home games for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, and the Jacksonville Armada FC.
These are only a few of the many fun ways to spend your free time in northeastern Florida that may be more interesting than raking leaves. Jacksonville is also home to the Cummer Museum of Art, the LaVilla Museum, the Catherine Street Fire Station, the Kingsley Plantation, the Palm and Cycad Arboretum, the 1878 Merrill House, the Bryan Gooding Planetarium, the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville and more. The Ritz Theatre, the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts and other theaters are great places to check out live performances in your free time.
Allowing leaves to sit on your lawn is easy to do. After all, Jacksonville's residents have many opportunities to live life to the fullest, and working on the yard in the heat and humidity is not usually included in that list. Procrastinating, however, is detrimental to the condition of your landscaping. It can result in patchiness, disease, or even the need to replace your entire lawn with new sod. You could miserably try to rake your leaves when the need arises at various times of the year, or you could do what many other Jacksonville residents do.
