7 reasons to NOT clean up your fall garden beds

October 25, 2018

Wait, what?  Getting the OK to NOT clean the yard up? That’s unusual but there are reasons.

Here are just a few:

  • Leaving your spent plants up in the fall provides shelter to wildlife
  • Plants left standing provide a totally different look when there’s a snowfall
  • Leaving plants were they are enables them to gather more water after a snow

… and some of these days it is just too darn cold to do such garden work.


So take the weekend off and enjoy the benefits of NOT cleaning up your fall garden beds.
