Leaves as far as the eye can see: leave or remove?

Autumn is undoubtedly beautifully colourful but it also leaves its traces: Leaves often cover entire streets and fields. So what to do – remove or leave? And who’s responsible of getting rid of the leaves on footpaths or in front of your home? We’ve got the answers.

Key issues at a glance:

  • Responsibility: Getting rid of leaves on the property (even if they’re the neighbours leaves), on the footpath and in front of your home is your landlord or landlady's responsibility (unless stated otherwise in your rental contract).
  • Garden tools: Removing autumn foliage is best done with a designated leaf rake. Lawnmowers, leaf vacuums and garden shredders might come in handy to help you chop up leaves and fine branches. After that, mix it into your compost with lawn cuttings.
  • Free fertiliser: Leaves compost and can be used as topsoil when spring comes around.
  • Winter home: A pile of leaves in the corner of your garden provides the perfect shelter for hibernating animals. The rest of the leaves will make great topsoil in spring.

Yes to leaves here:

Leaves under trees or on garden beds protect plants from the cold. In other words, you can safely leave them just as they are.

No to leaves here:

Make sure your lawn is not densely covered with leaves as they deprive the grass of vital oxygen. Also remove foliage from garden ponds as sinking leaves promote algae growth. Leaves scattered on footpaths or in front of your door should be removed as they may pose a slipping hazard for pedestrians.
