A little bit of leaves in a lawn is OK and can provide nutrients such as nitrogen to your soil, but too many leaves can block the sun's rays, cause your soil's pH to change, as well as create fungus, mold and other disease.

Don't Let Piles of Leaves Ruin Your Property
If you allow leaves to pile up on your lawn and landscaping, they can wreck havoc on your yard. When leaves are left on the ground, they can clog drains which then leads to flooding in your yard or street. An abundance of leaves also prevents soil and grass beneath them from accessing the sunlight, oxygen and nutrients they need to survive.
When it rains, leaves absorb water and become heavy. This will cause water to remain in constant contact with underlying grass without the opportunity to dry. This creates an ideal environment for the growth of fungus and mold. As leaves become heavy, they will also compress the grass down below it, killing it.
