Should Fallen Maple Leaves Be Removed From Pachysandra Plants

Question From: N. Kay - Cambridge, New York, United States
Q: My pachysandra garden is established (4 yrs old) underneath a large maple tree. Should I remove the fallen maple leaves from the pachysandra plants or just let them accumulate naturally?

A: I blew them off the beds, Vacumed them up in my WORX Trivac blower vac. and dumped the shredded leaves back on the beds and swept them in with a broom. Mother Nature's way of feeding the soil. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
