So this is the deal, I think the lawn needs to have the leaves mulched in before its snows which it's suppose to do today. That ain't happening! Whats the opinion of leaving the leaves on the grass as whole leaves? I think it makes for a hot mess with mold happening at some point and will make things in the end not a good thing. We keep the grass longer when the "Hub" mows,which I agree on, although I think it's a bit too long at this point as I can't see the dog poop to pick up, and I get your opinion on that subject Paul but I need it picked up as it is gross, and becomes a mind field!
So I'm willing to let go of the mulching the leaves into the grass if it's ok to do and leave them as is. The "Hub" is thinking that he wants every #%*#%# leaf to fall before we do anything. But these tree's don't necessarily drop all the their leaves before winter sets in. Help me! as I either need information for the "Hub" or I let go of the whole scene. Thanks ......Liz

Won't cause a problem. Out here in the country we never mulch leaves into the grass and have verdant, lush lawns every spring regardless. Better things to obsess over than leaves and grass...I say, let it go.

No problem at all to let them just lay there all winter.
I always leave the lawn long before winter, other people mow one more time but I just get lazy I guess and let it stay long, then I let the leaves lay if they want to or blow away, but in the spring my grass is greening up sooner than others and I have to mow before anyone else.

We got NoMowGrass and rarely, if ever mow it. Last summer was drought so we left it and it stayed green without watering and no mowing.

We hate heavy maintenance lawns cause we would rather be doing ANYTHING else than mowing. As time goes on, we fencing in more and more areas to let the sheep n goats in so they take care of it and we put NoMowGrass on trails in the woods and a picnic area by the creek. We also put it on the main garden path to keep down weeds....and this year dust.

We thought about planting food stuff in the areas, but they are pathes and we walk through there with mucky boots and drive tractors through there and pull wagons through. We didn't really want to eat what we track all that stuff on.

If leaves are a problem- spray the area with fish emulsion -the microbes eat it down and convert leaves to food for plants.
