According to environmentalists, there is more to this statement that just resentment for chores. Raking, bagging, and disposing of your fallen leaves may be destroying mini-ecosystems in your backyard. Read on to learn why you should put down your rake immediately.

Reasons Against Raking

⦁ According to the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), “The leaf layer is its own mini-ecosystem…Many wildlife species live in or rely on the leaf layer to find food and other habitat.” [1] The fallen leaves that cover your ground during fall are vital for several animal species such as worms, shrews, toads, box turtles, chipmunks, salamanders, moths, and butterflies. So, are you willing to destroy the seasonal habitat of these adorable species?

⦁ Aside from sustaining eco-systems, fallen leaves offer several benefits to your gardening efforts. For example, they naturally fertilize the soil, removing the need for costly commercial fertilizers that might be harmful. Fallen leaves also suppress weeds by forming a natural mulch.

Takeaway: Put the Rake Away

Avoiding the back-breaking work of raking seems like a win-win situation. Improve the fertility of your garden, protect the eco-systems that support adorable critters, and bask in the beauty of the autumn afternoons. In a nutshell, put the rake away, take a seat, and enjoy nature.
