Leopard gecko eggs?

Do I need to provide my adult female leo with a separate egg-laying "area", or will she just lay them in the tank? I don't plan on breeding her, or saving the eggs, but I know that bearded dragons require a separate egg-laying place, or else they won't lay and that can be dangerous. Is it the same with leopard geckos?

It's very unusual for a leopard gecko not introduced to a male to lay eggs (this has only happened with one of my geckos in the last 14 years). If you want to be sure, take a sandwich sized gladware container, cut a hole in the top, put in some moist coco fiber and put it in the cage. This can double as a humid hide, so even if she doesn't ever lay, she will have a nice humid hide.
