Do you think you should sweep leaves from your lawn?

Maybe I am lazy but I dont believe lawns should be swept.I think the leaves from the lawn should be allowed to decay and contribute to the fertility of the soil.I remember when I used to go to school ,I used to go past this huge white house with an extensive lawn you could see the lush green grass and beneath a canopy of brown leaves and I loved the look . I used to think to myself that I wanted a house and lawn just like that when I grow up,still havent achieved that dream but I hold true to the original premise ; LAWNS SHOULDNT BE SWEPT.

We never rake our leaves but i think you are suppose to.I think raking the leaves has something to do with keeping the grass healthy.My granddaughter loves to go out and play in the leaves,so we just leave them pile up. happy mylotting
