Most of us only think about cleaning up our landscapes in the spring, when we know we need to freshen our mulch and edge our beds.
But fall clean-ups are just as important for keeping your property in tip-top shape. Here are some of the benefits:
- Tidy Up Perennials and Grasses Perennials and ornamental grasses are a bit “strung out” at the end of the growing season. Cutting back dying foliage keeps your landscape looking tidy, even in winter.
- Reduce Risk of Plant Pests & Disease When trees drop leaves they can build up in planting beds, getting caught between plants and shrubs. Leaving leaf debris over winter can harbor pests and diseases that will compromise the health of your landscape next spring.
- Enjoy a Beautiful Landscape Year-Round Why should you only enjoy your landscape in the spring and summer? When your landscape is well-maintained and tidy it will look great in the fall and winter too!
