New Orleans leaf removal services
When most people think about New Orleans, they immediately think about the cultural diversity of the French, Creole, and Spanish influences that the area has had over the years. This diversity extends to the beautiful landscapes in the area as well as the incredible native vegetation. Vegetation, such as magnificently grand trees, thrive throughout New Orleans and the rest of southern Louisiana thanks to its unique geographical features, location, and climate.
New Orleans has a low elevation and flatlands. With its location close to the Gulf of Mexico, Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River, flooding is unfortunately common. This generally moist environment is well-suited for many stunning tree species to thrive. Some of the trees that you may see in and around New Orleans include the swamp chestnut oak, laurel oak, Shumard oak, the white oak, water oak, and many others. Some native species reach a mature height of more than 50 feet.
The region has a humid subtropical climate that is heavily influenced by its proximity to the coast. Generally, residents here enjoy mild winters and warm summers with high levels of humidity common throughout the year. There are approximately 115 days annually with measurable precipitation, and annual average rainfall is more than 60 inches. Tropical storms and hurricanes are relatively frequent in the area as well.
Oak trees that thrive in New Orleans and surrounding areas typically lose their leaves in early spring, but other trees in the area lose leaves traditionally in the fall. Also, intense storms that could strike any time of the year may blow leaves to the ground. This means that local homeowners may have to deal with several periods throughout the year when leaf removal is essential. Removing the leaves from your yard is often considered for aesthetic purposes, but there are other reasons why you must remove leaves as soon as they fall to the ground. The most important reason is to protect your lawn.
Oak leaves and other types of leaves that fall onto your lawn effectively block the sunlight and fresh air from reaching the grass. They also limit the amount of rain that can filter into the grass roots. When the leaves remain on the ground for an extended period of time, your grass may become stressed. Disease and potentially death can occur, which means that you could be faced with an expensive and time-consuming re-sodding task if you do not rake and bag all leaves as soon as possible.
Leaf removal can be a time-consuming chore, and it also can be challenging to find an ideal time when weather conditions are perfect for raking leaves around your busy schedule. When you have free time on beautiful days, you may prefer to spend your time enjoying all that New Orleans offers rather than cooped up at home during strenuous yard work for several hours.
New Orleans is a popular tourist destination with year-round visitors. When you live in New Orleans, you are fortunate enough to enjoy all that the city offers year-round. New Orleans is known for its many exciting cultural and music festivals, and these include the Mardi Gras Festival, Gentilly Fest, NOLA Reggae Fest, Hell Yes Fest, the Voodoo Music, and Arts Experience, Rougarou Fest and dozens of other smaller and larger events held throughout all seasons in and around the area. New Orleans also has several professional, amateur and collegiate sports teams that local residents closely follow throughout the year. If you are a fan of teams like the Saints, the Pelicans, the Baby Cakes or the Pelicans, you do not want to miss out on a game to rake your leaves.
When the weather is nice in New Orleans, you may prefer to spend leisure time at one of the area's many lovely parks. Some of the more popular parks that offer a wide range of amenities and activities include Jackson Square, Crescent Park, New Orleans City Park, Louis Armstrong Park, and Audubon Park. Throughout the year, you may also have plans to visit the Vieux Carre Historic District, Bourbon Street, the New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park, the French Quarter, the French Market, the St. Louis Cathedral, Canal Street, the Natchez steamboat and other venues with your favorite people.
Because your trees' leaves may fall throughout the year, leaf removal is a necessary task across all seasons. While the leaves cannot sit on the lawn for a lengthy period of time, you may not have enough time in your busy life to spend hours outdoors raking the leaves. Some New Orleans residents have tried to take a shortcut by using a leaf blower rather than a rake. A leaf blower seemingly would save time and energy, but many people have learned the hard way that a leaf blower simply blows the leaves up and into the air. From there, they will flutter around and land in a new location. It can be challenging to effectively use a leaf blower to get the leaves in a pile. In fact, because of this challenge, you may actually waste time using a leaf blower. Ultimately, you may still need to reach for your rake to get the job done right.
