The Farmer’s Almanac and the National Wildlife Federation make the following recommendations:

  • Let leaves stay where they fall. A leaf layer several inches deep is a natural thing in any area where trees naturally grow. The leaf layer is its own mini ecosystem! Many wildlife species live in or rely on the leaf layer to find food. The easiest solution is to chop the leaves. The finer the cut the faster they’ll decompose. Spread the leaf confetti all over the lawn, garden or flower bed where they can root and become part of the soil.
  • Many butterfly and moth species overwinter as pupae in leaf litter. If you rake up and throw away all of your leaves, you’ll be getting rid of the beneficial and often beautiful insects. Remember, butterfly and moth caterpillars are a critically important food source for birds in the spring when they are feeding their babies. If you remove all the pupae with your leaves in the fall, there will be fewer insects in and around your yard in the spring.
  • Use them as a weed barrier for spring plantings. Chopped or left whole, leaves make excellent mulch for vegetable crops, berries, and ornamental shrubs. They not only suppress weeds but help retain soil moisture, but because they contain no weed seeds themselves, they won’t encourage the spread of new weeds.
  • Homeowner’s Association wants a tidy yard? Put the leaves in a big trash can then with a weed whacker break the leaves down into a finer textured mulch.
