We neighbors swap leaves all the time here... I have a high bank on the South side of my front yard so mine usually get caught in the ditch there. Last couple of day however there has been an sustained 20-25MPH Wind out of the North and a steady stream of leaves heading south haha...

Not only that but good fences keep your leaves in your yard and the neighbors leaves in theirs. We leave home in Sept and by April the leaves are all gone when we return.

I never rake leaves. Wait until they're mostly all down, get out the mower and mulch them into dust.

I have to laugh, on a few thoughts.

A cowork has a neighbor who he describes just as you mentioned.

My large tree (black walnut) with an 80’ crown hangs over three yards. It drops its leaves by early October. Because the leaves and drippings are very toxic to other plants I rack and mow them up right away. My neighbors all around me do not and wait till the last moment to rack. In their defense they all have crimson maples and they typically do not start dropping their leave until now. This year they are about a week early do to a few days of insanely windy conditions. My side yard garden (which I had previously cleaned out a few weeks ago) I racked out and had a pile about 5’ tall, about 6’ wide and 10+’ long. I ran the pile down with the mulcher mower than came back with the bagger unit on. I walked away with only having to empty the push mowers bag twice. Job done. I will guess I will have to do this one time this year.

Mother nature pushes the leaves around. I just wish my one neighbor would pick them up in the fall instead of the late late spring.
