As Austin waits for the fall colors to appear you might want to think twice before you spend a Saturday raking leaves.

If done correctly, there are environmental benefits to leaving your leaves on the ground to decompose instead of raking and bagging them, experts say, that can not only help your trees and other plants, but also the animals living in your yard.
