FALLEN LEAVES


FALL SEASON IS UPON US!


The Lakes at Cedar Grove CC&R's exist to maintain consistency and high quality aesthetics of the homes in The Lakes at Cedar Grove.  You can read the CC&R's on the Association's website, www.thelakesatcedargrove.com


Why Clean Up Fallen Leaves

  • Copious amounts of large leaves like maple or oak will smother your grass and flowers if left as is.
  • Your fallen leaves will blow onto neighboring yards. Could ruin a great friendship.
  • Your fallen leaves may get into the storm drain. Leaves that go into the storm drain, rather than being bagged, is a violation of the LCG 'Use Restrictions' and can clog the drain and cause overflows.  Once leaves reach a waterway they decompose and can cause algae blooms that can kill fish.
  • Leaf removal may be required by your HOA
  • Fallen leaves can carry diseases such as anthracnose, a type of fungus.
  • Foliage in your roof gutters will cause clogs, which may result in damage to your fascia and soffit boards, as well as rainwater backing up into your attic. Eventually, when the temperature dips below freezing, clogged gutters tend to produce ice dams.
  • Clumps of dead leaves on the roof itself will trap moisture, leading the shingles underneath to rot.
