Q

Fallen leaves in flower bed.

It is totally inundated . Let them be until spring? If not, how many to leave behind? One more question. Do the leaves HAVE to be shredded? Unfortunately, it is difficult to get landscapers to change old habits that die hard.
Thank you.

Answer

The leaves need to be removed so that animals will not find homes in the garden under the leaves.  Leaves left in the garden need to be shredded so they will break down to improve the soil.
