No Leaves to Rake Up!
Not all deciduous trees have leaves that you have to rake off the lawn! Some trees have leaves so small or thin so that they melt into the lawns or flower beds they fall on, leaving nothing worth raking up. This is the case, among others, of the honey locust (Gleditsia spp.), black locust (Robinia spp.), cut leaf birches (Betula pendula ‘Filigree Lace’ and others) and cut leaf alders (Alnus glutinosa ‘Imperialis’ and others). So if you hate raking up fall leaves, those trees are ones you’ll really love!
