It was a Michigan School that ground up 6" of maple leaves into the standard cool season lawn... By Spring it is gone with the snow and all that OM and nutrients went right into the soil structure of the turf...

Maples are simple that way and when you're at the time of year that there is leaf fall going on,,, you can clean it up,,, **** and span today , but tomorrow looks like neglect again...
So with that thought in mind,,, "What difference does it make if the leaves don't immediately disappear???"

But I do not mulch mow oak or pine...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
