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.
