The “Leave the Leaves” movement encourages people to refrain from bagging and disposing of fallen leaves in landfills. Instead, it suggests leaving them to decompose naturally over winter. This process turns the leaves into nutrient-rich organic matter, beneficial for both the environment and garden plants. It also provides shelter for hibernating pollinators and other useful insects. This practice effectively turns yard waste into free fertilizer, benefiting plant health, the environment, and saving money.
However, it’s crucial to be mindful about the type of leaves and their location. Whole leaves should not be left on walkways, as they can become a slipping hazard, nor should they be left to cover the lawn entirely, as they might cause lawn diseases. The movement emphasizes thoughtful and strategic leaf management for environmental benefits.
