Edition USA Today 3 collected reasons why it is better to leave fallen leaves on the ground, despite the fact that it may look sloppy.

Untidy leaves can save you money.

Leaves are a natural fertilizer. And by removing them, you are removing that natural support for your garden or lawn, and then buying artificial fertilizers.

If you still need to remove the leaves for aesthetic purposes, do not burn them, but transfer them to the backyard or to the garden, where they can decompose and feed the earth with useful substances.

The life of some animals depends on the leaves.

The life of butterflies and some birds strongly depends on the waste of leaves. Many species of butterflies spend the winter hiding in the leaves, and when you move or burn them, you kill the butterflies you could see in your yard next summer. And if there are no larvae of butterflies in the yard, you will also ward off some species of birds that fly in search of food, and the larvae are for them one of the main gains in winter.

Leaves and garden waste occupy a lot of space in landfills

Food waste, leaves and other garden waste make up from 20% to 30% of what people throw out all the time. Therefore, to allow the leaves to decompose where they have fallen will bring the double benefit of ecology, saving nature from unnecessary waste.
