This may be a silly question but is there an easy way or just easier to rake leaves on mulch without removing all the mulch?

    If you have a leaf blower or can borrow/rent one, use it on the lightest setting (not holding the trigger). It will be enough air to move the leaves without moving too many wood chips.

    If there aren't too many leaves and you aren't too fastidious, you can leave them to decompose. Also, I use a small width rake in my garden beds that seems easier; I also use it to get leaves out of bushes.
