Here's why. The autumn leaves drift past your window. Now leave them alone. Author: Jeff Lowenfels Alaska gardening. Again, let me be clear. Your lawn will be fine. We have a huge lawn which itself does have to be addressed with a new rule, but that is another column. We also have dozens and dozens of huge birch trees. In developing this new rule, I first practiced and also encouraged readers to mulch these up in the fall with a mower.
That was a wasted step both in terms of work as well as using my super polluting lawn tractor there is another rule to develop there, too. So, again: the 21st century practice is to leave leaves alone. The results over the past 20 years of experimenting have been practice altering. I no longer fertilize. I have extremely limited watering chores and only need to mow the lawn once every two or three weeks.
It is time for the environment, not corporate profit, to make the rules.
As noted, this is the right way to take care of your yard. Hence forth, a yard devoid of leaves in the fall must be seen as a poorly maintained yard. I know that sounds weird and I know many will not like that I have presented it as a no-choice thing, but perhaps all the time and effort saved in raking will be salve for any wounds the new rule inflicts.
At least I know not raking the leaves will be a balm for the yard.

Breathe to me while I hold you close the secret of the murmuring I envy. Rustle not up so hoarse and angry against my feet as I touch you or gather from you. I gather for myself and for this phantom looking down where we lead, and following me and mine. Musing, pondering, a breath, a briny tear, a dab of liquid or soil,. A limp blossom or two, torn, just as much over waves floating, drifted at random,. We, capricious, brought hither we know not whence, spread out before you,. O storm, embodied, rising, careering with swift steps along the beach!
O wild and dismal night storm, with wind—O belching and des- perate! O shade so sedate and decorous by day, with calm countenance and regulated pace,.
The Walt Whitman Archive
But away at night as you fly, none looking—O then the unloosen'd ocean,. T HOU who hast slept all night upon the storm,. After the night's fierce drifts have strewn the shore with wrecks,.
Days, even weeks untired and onward, through spaces, realms gyrating,. The bows turn, the freighted ship tacking speeds away under her gray sails,. The beautiful and noble ship with all her precious wealth speeds away gayly and safe. While ravening clouds, the burial clouds, in black masses spreading,. They shall not long possess the sky, they devour the stars only in apparition,. Jupiter shall emerge, be patient, watch again another night, the Pleiades shall emerge,. They are immortal, all those stars both silvery and golden shall shine out again,.
