In containers, I would. In my gardens & yard for that matter, I don't rake my leaves or the dead growth, I let it cover my ground, which actually produces a richer & more moist soil in the spring, when I do rake. So, you might actually put a layer of leaves or dead grass on top of the pots, before you cover them. Then before planting, definately "stir" the soil.

You could use cord or bungees to tie the plastic around the top of the pot.

I have a bunch of plastic I can use. Usually wind comes with the rain. That's the trickier part.

Any time water runs completely through the pot, nutrients can be leached out. So covering them would be a very good idea.

I would think it does to some degree. I would cover them.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

Do I need to protect my good soil from heavy rains?

I have a container garden. Some of the containers have good soil but no plants (yet).

Does the heavy rains leach out the nutrients?
