horses for courses methinks
I had an area set aside for leaves and it worked well - out of sight, could just let nature do it's thing, but also tried filing old compost bags with a few slits in the bottom, adding a bit of water, or leaving the tops open for rain to get in - worked just as well, and about the same time to decompose, but easier to move around the garden afterwards. I find a mixture of different leaves is best, if you can find them.
And oh, that wonderful leafmould smell when it's ready.....
