Can You Keep Your Tree Leaves on the Lawn?

My spouse says you cannot keep the leaves on the lawn and that it is bad for it. I say you can as long as you mulch them into it.

If you mulch them, it is fine and can actually be helpful to your lawn. You do want to be careful not to leave too thick of a layer though, as this will block sunlight to the leaves in the spring and the grass will die off.
