What do you look forward to in Autumn? Is it the cooler weather? The pumpkin spice lattes? If we had to guess, we’d imagine that raking leaves is not the highlight of the season for you. However, most homeowners have been told that leaving (pun intended?) fallen leaves on their lawn will suffocate the underlying grass – so the leaves must be cared for immediately! Is that true?

Well, technically, yes. Significant amounts of leaves covering a wide swath of grass, covered by another layer of winter snow can cause mold growth and may kill the grass. However, a moderate amount of leaf coverage is said to be harmless.

Another thing to think about that may get you out of raking those leaves is the concept of leaf mulching. Many lawnmowers have a mulching function or add-on that can turn leaves into tiny leaf pieces, which can reduce weed growth and releases nitrogen into the soil.
