What’s your strategy for fall garden clean up? Are you a Clean-Sweeper, removing every fallen leaf, cutting back every perennial, mulching all the beds and trimming all the evergreens? Or do you subscribe to the Let it Be theory, simply allowing nature to take its course, leaves falling where they may and plants fending for themselves? I’d like to suggest that neither of those approaches may be wise. While some believe leaving any dead plant standing is a sure way to incur the ire of the entire community, treating your garden so severely might do more harm than good. And turning a blind eye to that 6-inch pile of wet, matted leaves on your lawn and beds could be asking for trouble.
