WHY THE OBSESSION WITH LEAVES ON THE GROUND?
I marvel at the obsessive compulsive behavior of people during the fall season. As soon as the first leaf hits the ground they are out with rakes, yard bags and leaf blowers; and this behavior continues until the last leaf has fallen.
Leaves are a beautiful ground cover. If left throughout the winter and then mulched with the lawn mower in the spring they fertilize the soil and prevent moisture depletion.
And did I mention they are beautiful?
